Barbecue pulled pork sandwiches just seem to scream summer to me but I always dreaded the thought of having the oven on all day when it was already so hot out. That all changed when I picked up a slow cooker as not only does it not radiate a lot of heat but it also produces perfectly tender pork every time. I had been craving some of that sweet, spicy, moist and tender bbq pulled pork for a few days so I dusted off my slow cooker and started to cook up some pork. This recipe is dead easy where you simply cook the pork in the slow cooker, pull it and mix some bbq sauce into it. You could make it even easier by using your favorite store bought brand of bbq sauce, but making your own is pretty easy and you get to make it just how you want it. This time I threw some chipotle chilies in adobo sauce into the bbq sauce both as the primary source of heat to add some smokiness. It just wouldn’t be a bbq pulled pork sandwich without a generous helping of coleslaw thrown in and once again I went with the make your own option. I served the pulled pork sandwiches with a side of crispy sweet potato fries.
