  • Fill the empty BBQ sauce bottle with water, shake it up to get the rest of the sauce off the sides and then pour that over the top of the roast.
  • Add enough water so that the meat is mostly covered in liquid. Put the lid on the crock pot on and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
  • 30 minutes before serving, shred the meat with 2 forks and place it back in the crock pot.

  • Let it cook uncovered on high for the last 30 minutes to burn off some of the excess liquid.
  • Serve inside soft buns and add more BBQ sauce and toppings of your choice


If your roast is frozen, you could cook it in the crockpot overnight.
