Jillian’s BBQ

While BBQ purists may scoff at this version, it’s actually very good. Yes, I know it’s not authentic but dammit, it’s VERY easy. So stop complaining and shove some BBQ into your mouth instead.



This is a classic crock-pot recipe that takes maybe 10 minutes of real work. You just let everything sit in the crock pot for 6 hours, pull the pork apart with some forks and cover with the sauce of your choice.
The sauce of choice around here isn’t even a homemade concoction. Sticky Fingers Carolina Sweet gets you where you need to go: BBQ goodness.



You’ll notice I am very vague in the proportions of food in the recipe. This is because the recipe is extremely flexible and can be scaled up to nearly as large a crock pot as you have or as many people as you want to feed. And the timing does not need to be precise. As with most crock pot recipes, it’s very forgiving on time.

Chicken broth
boneless pork ribs
BBQ sauce (Sticky Fingers Carolina Sweet is our choice)


  1. Put the pork into the crock pot and cover it with about two inches of chicken broth (yes, you can even use bouillon cubes to make your broth).
  2. Set the crock-pot to the low heat setting. After about 5 or 6 hours, turn the heat to the higher setting for one more hour.
  3. Remove the pork and pull it apart using forks and put into a casserole dish.
  4. Put the dish into a 350 F oven for 5 to 10 minutes to heat it through and dry it a bit.
  5. Mix in your BBQ sauce and serve. (Or serve it dry with a choice of sauces.)

P.S. Jillian is a friend who showed me this method of making BBQ.
