Slow Cooked Bourbon Peach BBQ Pulled Pork is a family favorite easy crock pot recipe that's loaded with so much flavor.

Slow Cooked Bourbon Peach Bbq Sauce Pulled Pork Recipe is a favorite easy crock pot sandwich that's great for tailgating from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

I have a love for all pulled meat. I don't know what it is but something about juicy meat cooked long and slow in a sweet and tangy sauce piled high on a bun always calls my name. This was one of those recipe that was running through my mind when I wanted to sleep or maybe it was really just a dream and I thought I was awake.Then it kept popping in my head over the next few days and I knew I had to make it and oh boy am I thankful I did..

I've been trying to plan more crock-pot meals to help ease the dinner time burden. Our afternoon's have been filled with a lot of appointments, leaving us in a dinner time rush with the kids back to school. 

Slow Cooked Bourbon Peach Bbq Pulled Pork is a perfect fix it and forget it dinner.

I started the pork in the morning as the kids were headed off to school and by the time we came home from the chiropractor it was done and the house smelled divine. The sweet peach sauce with a hint of bourbon and a little chipotle peppers made a perfect sauce to infuse the pork. Sweet but tangy with a touch of heat. A perfect end to a busy day!

Add onion, bourbon, peach puree, garlic, ketchup and apple cider vinegar. Stir well.

I'm still having a lot of neck and back problems that makes it difficult to use my camera other than on the tripod so you'll have to excuse my lack of pictures, I was just thankful I was able to make dinner! 


Add salt and pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce and brown sugar. Stir until well incorporated.


Add a 3-3 1/2 pound Boneless Pork shoulder (Boston Butt) and coat in bbq sauce. Cover and cook over high heat for 6 hours or low heat for 8-10 hours. 

(My kids always get a kick out of it when I say Boston Butt, so very silly.)


Pork is done when it pulls apart easily. Use 2 forks and pull pork into bite size pieces.


If you're really looking for a taste bud explosion make sure to serve it with Tangy Cilantro Jalapeño Lime Coleslaw, it's our favorite side to serve on top a pulled Bbq sandwich.


Our favorite way to enjoy Slow Cooked Bourbon Peach Pulled Pork is on a lightly toasted bun topped with the Tangy Cilantro Jalapeño Lime Coleslaw.

If your lucky enough to have leftover's they make amazing Burritos  filled with rice, beans and cheese.

Slow Cooked Bourbon Peach BBQ Pulled Pork in a homemade peach bbq sauce. Super easy to prep in under 20 minutes and a crock pot favorite!


  1. Serena, This slow cooked pulled pork is awesome, sure bourbon made wonders in there.

  2. How big is your crock pot?

    1. Hi Melissa it's a 6qt. Please let me know if you have anymore questions!

  3. Great recipe. I added 3 chipoltles and 2 tablespoons of the sauce,then added some fresh pineapple puree. Bunch of old men just went to flavor town. Thanks

  4. Loved the peach addition!!!! This was SO good...although to be honest...I had to refer and adjust this recipe with another to convert to an instapot recipe (which requires more liquid). This flavor is one of a kind!

  5. Hi! I'd like to do this dish low and slow in the oven since I'm doubling the recipe. Do you think that would work? Also, what are your thoughts on brining the meat prior to cooking?

    1. Hi! You could double it without an issue as long as your crock pot is big enough. I don't feel like the pork needs to be brined prior to cooking since it's slow cooked in the crock pot. The sauce locks in the moisture and it could end up tooo salty or sweet depending on what you planned on brining with. Thanks, Serena
