  • 2 kg boneless pork shoulder
  • 250 mls bbq sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tbsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Mix the spices and salt into the bbq sauce. I put mine in a measuring jug.

  2. Remove the outer fat and rind on the pork shoulder by snipping the string and carefully cutting away most of the fat. Discard it.

  3. Put the shoulder joint in the slow cooker pot and pour over 100 mls of the bbq sauce and rub it all over.

  4. Put the lid on and cook on Low for at least 8 hours.

  5. Remove the joint to a chopping board. It may well fall apart as you're doing so. Discard or decant the liquid left behind.

  6. Use two forks to shred the pork, discarding any fatty pieces as you go.

  7. Put the shredded meat into a mixing bowl and pour over the remaining bbq sauce and mix well until evenly coated. Add more sauce from your bottle if you need to.

  8. Serve immediately or put back into the slow cooker pot on low until needed.

  9. Apply To The Nearest Cowboy's Face
