I’ll dedicate this video to bacon’s first cousin, pork loin. I love good barbecue, and this slow cook  method is super easy to do. Slow cookers are great because you can “set it and forget it” — the units are foolproof. It’s a versatile, inexpensive appliance to have in your kitchen, so consider buying one if you don’t already have one on hand.

A key for these pulled pork sandwiches is to use a bun that can stand up to the BBQ sauce, pork and cole slaw, because it’s downright frustrating to have your bun disintegrate two bites into the meal! Adjust the brown sugar, the hot sauce and red pepper flakes to your liking, and…don’t forget to add smoked bacon to your beans to finish off this dish!
