BBQ Pork Sliders

Serves 6 to 8

Whether for patio parties or game day watching, you can't go wrong with these easy-to-make crowd favorites.


  • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • To Serve:
  • 3 cups BBQ sauce
  • 8 Brioche slider buns
  • 1 cup coleslaw


  1. In a small bowl, combine salt, brown sugar, and pepper. Rub all over meat. Refrigerate seasoned pork overnight for best results.
  2. Follow manufacturer's instructions to heat charcoal or gas grill for cooking over indirect, low heat (200°F to 275°F). Plan for 4 1/2 to 6 hours of cooking time, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours per pound of meat. Check your grill owner's manual for how to place a drip pan under the grill rack (some grills come with a drip pan) to catch fat released during cooking to avoid flare-ups.
  3. Place pork on area of grill used for indirect cooking. Close grill and roast pork, checking every 1 to 1 1/2 hours, to adjust heat, as needed, and turn pork for even cooking. Meat is done when crust is deep brown and pork is tender enough to pull apart with a fork.
  4. Remove meat from grill and let rest at least 20 minutes.
  5. Shred meat. Drizzle barbecue sauce over pork and toss to blend.
  6. Halve and toast rolls. Pile on meat, coleslaw, and extra BBQ sauce to build sliders.
