Tri Tip Style Rubbed Pulled Pork Recipe

Tri Tip Dry Rubbed Pulled Pork is full of flavor, and easy to make in just a few steps.



  • 1-2 Pound Pork Loin trimmed of fat
  • 8 Tablespoons Jake's Tri Tip, Steak and Rib Dry Rub
  • 1 Cup of Jake's Original or Medium Hot Barbecue Sauce
  • 1-2 Medium Onions
  • 2-4 Hamburger buns or ciabatta bread
  • Sliced Pickles
  • 1 Gallon Zip Lock bag
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 4 Garlic Cloves


1. If Pork loin/butt is untrimmed then trim off any excess fat. Fat is a necessary component in a tender pulled pork but too much fat can spoil the flavor of the finished product.


2. Once the pork is trimmed cut the loin/butt in half. This increases the cooking surface and shortens the time it takes to cook the meat.


3. Rub the loin/butt complete with Jake's Tri Tip, Steak and Rib Dry Rub. When completed place both sections into the zip lock bag, seal and place in the refrigerator.


4. Take the garlic cloves and crush with the flat side of your kitchen knife. Once crushed place the garlic evenly around the bottom of the crockpot. Take 1 of the onions cut them in half then slice the onions into sizes of about 1/8 inch. Spread the onion around the crockpot on top of the garlic. Pour in the red wine vinegar. Add the water into the crockpot. 


5. Turn CrockPot on High setting for 10 minutes.


6. After 10 minutes turn the crockpot to Low. Take the dry rubbed pork from the zip lock bag and place onto the onions. Take the second sliced onion and place on top of the pork. Sprinkle the salt over the pork. 


7. Place the lid on the crockpot and let cook for 11 hours. After cooking cover the pork in the BBQ Sauce. Close the lid and allow the crockpot to continue cooking for 1 more hour. 


8. Take hamburger or ciabatta rolls and cut in half if not already cut. Coat the buns with olive oil and brown the olive oil side on an open faced grill or cast iron pan. When done set aside and hold. Take two standard table forks and shred the pork in the crockpot mixing the meat in with the BBQ Sauce as you go.


9. Scoop out enough pulled pork to cover the open face of the bun. Add pickles if desired and the top of the bun.


10. Serve with chips, beans, coleslaw or more pickles.
