Old Fashioned BBQ Sandwiches

It is true! I am finally going to share my BBQ sauce recipe- right down to the secret ingredient!!

mmm...BBQ pork piled high
BBQ Pork Recipe
Serves 8

2 lb. pork loin or shoulder (you can substitute a chuck roast if you prefer beef)

1 onion, chopped
4 garlic gloves, pressed or chopped
2 Tbsp. mustard
24 oz. bottle ketchup
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. liquid smoke or smoked salt
1 tsp. salt (omit if using smoked salt)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (1/4 tsp if serving just adults)

Place all ingredients in a crockpot or dutchoven. Cook on low heat for 8 hours. Add water if needed to keep it from drying out.

Pile high on a bun with mayo or coleslaw.

mmmm.... ENJOY!!

*you can simmer the sauce for 30 minutes if you want a good dipping BBQ sauce.


  1. yumm! ever tried it on chicken? we are having BBQ chicken sandwiches tomorrow. Maybe i'll try it out, but the sad thing is i have no liquid smoke. is that the secret ingredient?

  2. It is great on chicken and yes the smoke is the secret ingredient. It is still pretty good without the smoke though. We like to toss all the ingredients in the dutch oven with chicken pieces. mmmm... good luck!
