    Ok - hope it is ok to put the question here & not the recipe section, I need to know if this will work rather than give the recipe!

    Was thinking of making the syn free bbq sauce & putting this with a small joingt of pork in the slow cooker.

    Question is - will it be ok to cook it like this as the pork will be raw & all the juices will come out won't they?

    Was thinking of doing like a shreaded pork in bbq sauce type thing that can be used for either for a sandwich using HEb bread - or with lots of vegi's

    So what do you think - should I cook the pork alone in the slow cooker, shread it & then add the bbq sauce, or cook it in the sauce so the joint gets the flavouring??

    I would try cooking it in some of the sauce and having some over it after cooking Hun. Sounds delicious!

    yeah could do - never thought of that!! haha

    Do you think it will be ok to still use the sauce its cooked in though? I am worried about the fats draining out of the joint!

    I love cooking pork in the slow cooker, make it so tender. I even do it for steaks/chops.

    If it was me, I would add the sauce after as you do get a lot of water out of pork and the sauce would dilute too much.

    ok so i have put the joint in on its own - figured I would drain off the excess stock & then 1/2 hours from the end cover it in bbq sauce - try it that way :)

    Thanks to you both for your help though x

    I'd love to know how it turn's out, because it sounds gorgeous, and I love my slow cooker, so I should like to cook it myself.
