The crock pot is an essential kitchen appliance, and it's especially valuable for barbecue recipes. The low and slow cooking renders tough cuts of meat tender and succulent. It's also a convenient way to prepare barbecue when it's impossible to grill outdoors. If you like the smoky flavor a genuine pit barbecue creates, add some liquid smoke to your slow cooker, or use a smoke flavored dry seasoning.

Serve tender shredded barbecue pork or ribs with your favorite sides. Coleslaw is...MORE essential, especially for sandwiches, and potato salads and pasta salads go well with barbecue. Gussied-up baked beans, pickles, corn-on-the-cob, and macaroni and cheese are fabulous side dishes as well.

Don't let the weather stop you from enjoying one of these recipes for barbecue pork for sandwiches, ribs, or roasts.
