Homemade Barbeque Recipe for the Best BBQ Sandwiches

barbeque porkSave lots of money and make your own delicious barbeque sandwiches in your home with my Barbeque Recipe.

Barbeque sandwiches are my husband’s favorite meal.  I do believe the man could eat them every day and be most content.

However, eating out has always been more expensive than cooking at home and in the current day economy, dining out has become an even greater luxury many of us simply cannot afford.

Nearly 30 years ago, I started cooking barbeque at home for my family.  Until today, I only shared my recipe with close friends and family.  It is certainly not hard to cook great barbeque at home and the money saved is well worth the effort.

Although many may not know how to prepare a pork roast for BBQ, the real secret to my success is in the barbeque sauce.  Shhhhhh!   You all won’t tell anyone it is store bought and comes in a bottle, will you?

The Secret to Great Barbeque

This barbeque sauce is truly the secret to my success, and to delicious barbeque sandwiches.

NOTE: Additional Barbeque Sauce (any flavor) can be added to individual sandwiches in order to accommodate varying preferences and tastes.


The Crock Pot

When I got married, crock pots were only available in the round shape.  I still have and use my original crock pot.  However, I think the newer oval shaped crock pots would be a tremendous improvement when cooking a pork shoulder since they are normally more of an oblong shape.

When and if my old reliable crock pot plays out, I will be replacing it with the oval shaped crock pot.

You will need, at least, a 6 Quart Crock Pot

The Baking Dish

I spread the chopped meat in a standard Pyrex baking dish for the oven baking part of this recipe.  The dish I use is 15″ long x 10″ wide x 2″ deep.

  2. Yum – I love pork BBQ sandwiches. My hubby’s favorite too. My sister-in-law has been after me for some time to get a slow cooker, which would be perfect for this recipe. I’m getting closer to being motivated now. 🙂
