Barbecue Pineapple Pulled Pork - Slow Cooker Style

This barbecue pulled pork slow cooker recipe is the perfect meal to throw in your crock pot at the beginning of the day and come home from work to a delicious simple dinner. 

Barbecue Pineapple Pulled Pork - Slow Cooker Recipe

This Slow Cooker Barbecue Pineapple Pulled Pork recipe is so simple you're going to think I'm lying. But I'm not, I swear! It's pure delicious. Sure, I still love my stand-by pulled pork recipe for something mild and easily incorporated into other dishes, but if you're looking for sweet barbecue goodness? This is the ticket!

I originally published this slow cooker pulled pork recipe in 2010 when I was just getting comfortable in the kitchen.  My slow cooker was a favorite tool of torture back in those days and it was a definite lottery when dinner came around.  Would the recipe work?  Would it be a terrifying disaster? Who's going to test it first?!  Thankfully, this pork recipe came out great and here seven years later it's still a favorite in our home.  The ox tail soup I made then next week though?  That one won't ever see the light of day again!
