Slow Cooker Apple Barbecue Pork Loin is a great way to have your barbecue without having to grill!
It’s the hottest month of the year here in Oregon. We do not have AC in most of our house, the kitchen gets 90+ degrees some days if I even turn on the dishwasher. I don’t feel like even stepping outside to start the barbecue. This recipe I wasn’t sure if it was going to turn out and I was even more worried if it would photograph well.
I’m glad I went through testing this recipe out, it’s a winner! The apples along with the barbecue sauce and vinegar make the best sauce ever! For the sides with this pork, I did corn on the cob and watermelon.

I cook the pork loin for 7 hours, which is just enough time to make the pork tender enough to slice. I serve the apples and barbecue sauce over the pork slices.
