I just put the meat in the slow cooker with a bottle of bbq sauce a handful of onions and maybe a tad bit of chilli powder/salt/pepper. Never had a complaint ๐Ÿ™‚

I always do a rub when slow cooking meat, and use alcohol as my liquid (wine or beer, or  sometimes bourbon). Depending on the flavor I’m going for Ill add other ingredients, like those for BBQ sauce: ketchup, diced onion, garlic, molasses, dijon mustard, brown sugar, worcestershire, paprika, chili powder, oregano, thyme, salt, black pepper, and cayenne.

@ChocolateLime:  I use my brother’s recipe: mix 2/3 cup brown sugar, 2/3 cup ketchup, 2/3 cup red wine vinegar and pour on top of the pork, cook for 8-10 hours. Shred it and keep cooking about an hour before its done. I serve it with homemade cole slaw and rolls. Delicious!

@ChocolateLime:  Yeah Australia doesn’t really have root beer either. The only places I’ve seen it are American specialty stores that have pop tarts and Hershey’s.

Onions, spices, and some kind of liquid (wine, beer, soda, apple juice, apple cider vinegar, water). Cook forever, then taste and add BBQ sauce and more spices if needed.

@Rainstorm77:  Not sure why, but your comment made me laugh.  I’m sad our specialty foods are Pop-Tarts and Root Beer! ๐Ÿ™‚ And, people are baffled by our obesity problems.  We do love our processed foods! ๐Ÿ™‚

I use liquid smoke instead of BBQ sauce.

Cover it with Root Beer. Cook. Drain. Pour in your favorite BBQ sauce to heat through. Shred. Eat. Mmmm! Not fancy, but yummy!

@Tess63110:  Hahah yeah now that I think of it, the places that sell American stuff is basically just candy at a ridiculously insane ‘imported’ cost. E.G. $10 for a 6 pack of pop tarts. Yeaaaah. Luckily I come to the US every 3rd month so I stock up on the important things like milk duds and twizzlers! We do think of America as the fast food country and I gain so much weight every time I am over there because the food portions are ginormous and CHEAP! It’s like coming home to mum’s place and pigging out on her delicious food. Mmmm soda soaked pig butt……. only in America!

 @Rainstorm77:  You speak the truth!  Now, not to stereotype, but the extent of my knowledge of Australian cuisine is vegemite.  UM–yuck!!  Perhaps we should make that a staple in our diets?  I know if I was expected to eat it regularly, I’d drop a few pounds. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Tess63110:  Nah, that’s fairly limited in our diets as maybe an occasional sandwich for lunch, or on toast at breakfast. Kids tend to eat it more often than adults. Aussie cuisine is a bit of an oxymoron as we don’t really have anything specifically ‘Aussie’. Meat pies (more like a football game snack like a hotdog) and fish and chips, but we stole that from the Brits. And don’t worry about losing weight if you went to Australia, we’re not far behind America in the obesity stats!

@ChocolateLime:  I put nothing in with my pork. Over the 8 hours, it produces it’s own juices. I then drain some of the fat and liquid away, shred the meat, mix in BBQ sauce and VOILA. Pulled pork.

@ChocolateLime:  i just do a homemade dry rub on my pork and let it cook alone in its own juices for 6-8 hours on low.  i usually pull it apart about an hour before done and let it soak up the juices.  i serve it as is.  the dry rub is full of flavour.  i sometimes add bbq sauce on the side.  my dh loves it as is.

i use the same dry rub on my crock pot ribs.  my dh doesn’t like bbq sauce.
