  • 3 pounds picnic roast or pork shoulder
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil for searing
  • 3 tablespoons Barbecue Spice Rub or seasoning of choice see notes
  • 1 can of beer something to the effect of Budweiser
  • ½ cup pan juices
  • ¾ cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 16-ounce package tri-color coleslaw
  • 1 ¼ cup Newman's Own poppy seed dressing
  • 1 granny smith apple cut into matchstick slices
  • 1 package (24-pack) party potato rolls such as Martin's


For the Pork:

  • Rub the pork with spice rub or seasonings of choice
  • Heat a dutch oven, or deep sided skillet, over high heat. Add canola oil. Sear the pork on all sides until browned - about 8 to 10 minutes
  • Transfer to a crock pot, add the beer and cook on low for 8 hours. If using a dutch oven only, lower the heat as low as possible, letting the pan cool off before adding the beer. Add water if more liquid is needed.
  • Once pork is cooked, transfer to a cutting board. Remove any large pieces of fat and discard. Using two large forks or tongs, shred the meat - this should happen easily after the low and slow cooking process.
  • In a large bowl, add the shredded pork meat, ½ cup of pan juices from the crock pot, and the barbecue sauce.  Toss to combine.

For the Coleslaw:

  • In a large bowl or sealable plastic bag, add the coleslaw and dressing and mix thoroughly so all of the coleslaw is coated.
  • Let sit for a few hours, overnight is best.

To assemble:

  • Toast the rolls in the oven or toaster oven for 5 to 7 minutes until slightly browned.
  • On a bun, layer ⅓ cup pulled pork, 3 tablespoons coleslaw and 4-5 pieces of the matchstick apples pieces.
