  • Servings: 24
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 hours
  • Total Time: 12 hours


2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Kosher Salt
½ cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Chili Powder
½ tsp Ground Cumin
2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Whole Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Dry Mustard
2 tsp Bbq Seasoning
5-7 lb Pork Butt
½ cup Honey Bbq Sauce
2 cups Ketchup
1 cup Tequila
¼ cup Lime Juice
⅔ cup Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Bbq Seasoning
2 cups Coleslaw
24 Slider Buns


1. In a small bowl,combine all of the ingredients for the rub. Rub spice mixture on all sides of the pork butt. Meat can be placed in the crockpot at this time or cover and refrigerate overnight.

2. Place pork into a large crockpot,add 2 cups of water to the bottom. Cover with lid and cook on low for 10-12 hours until pork is tender enough to pull apart with forks. May cook 5-6 hours on high if desired instead.

3. To prepare the sauce, place the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan,stir,and simmer over a low heat for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.

4. Remove pork roast to a large pan and pull apart with 2 forks. Spoon some of the juice from the crockpot over the meat if desired for extra moistness. Pour the sauce over the shredded meat, and toss to combine. Place in serving pan or back in the crockpot. If desired, may serve the sauce on the side instead. Serve on slider buns and top with coleslaw.

Helpful Tips:

I usually pour half of the sauce onto the shredded meat and place back in crockpot on warm for about a half an hour if time allows. Serve the remaining sauce on the side. This recipe is a kicked up version of a pulled pork sandwich. So easy to prep,cook and serve. The rub done ahead helps to cook flavors into the meat and then the addition of a homemade sauce makes it very special. I have been making versions of this sauce without the tequila for several years. I added this for a mexican themed party last year.
