Spicy Pop Pulled Pork


  • 1 whole pork butt or pork loin or any other kind of pork roast works really
  • 2 large onions quartered
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 cans Dr. Pepper
  • 11 oz can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce or use a 7oz can if you like it less spicy & 2 7oz cans if you like it more spicy
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Generously salt & pepper the pork roast, then set it on top of the onions in your covered roaster.
  • Pour the can of chipotle peppers over the pork (include the sauce). Pour in both cans of Dr. Pepper. Add brown sugar to the liquid & stir in.
  • Place lid tightly on pot, then set pot in the oven. Cook for at least 6 hours, turning roast 2-3 times during the cooking process. Check meat after six hours; it should be falling apart. Use 2 forks to test. If it doesn't fall apart, return to the oven for an additional hour.
  • Remove meat from the pot, and place on a cutting board of other work surface. Use 2 forks to shred meat, discarding large pieces of fat. Strain as much of the fat off the top of the cooking liquid as you can & discard it. Return the shredded meat to the cooking liquid, and cook for another 30-60 minutes.
  • Alternatively, you can cook this in the crockpot on low for 7-8 hours - shred, then cook another 30 to 60 minutes.
