You Need to Try This Roadside Southern Pork Barbecue Recipe

When we think about barbecue, we usually think about summertime cooking. You likely usually make your barbecue recipes on the grill or in the smoker. There's good reason for this. Both of these cooking tools are great at cooking barbecued meat the right way.

But, the grill and the smoker aren't the only appliances good at cooking barbecue. The crock pot can do a great job, too. When winter has set in and grilling is out of the question, turn to recipes like this one for a little taste of warmer weather.

For the meat, we'll be using pork shoulder. Many of the other ingredients needed are classic barbecue ingredients, such as ketchup, onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder. You probably have many of the seasonings required on hand already.

This recipe will need to cook on low for eight to ten hours. Cooking it for this amount of time will tenderize the meat, meaning you won't have to worry about any part being too tough. If your family has been dreaming of barbecue while the snow falls, give them what they want with this great recipe.
