Coca-Cola Condensed Milk Crock Pot Pulled Pork

My wife seen an episode on the Food Network where pulled pork was made with Coca-Cola and condensed milk. I did not get to see that episode but the soda and condensed milk pulled pork sounded really good. She forgot the recipe from the episode so we looked up recipes. From what we had on hand, we based our recipe of that from Crock Pot Coca-Cola Pulled Pork. We were not sure what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised and pleased with how the pulled pork turned out. Here is how we made ours.


(Rough estimates as we just threw stuff in)
  • 1 (5-7 lb) pork shoulder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 cup onions, diced (not sure if necessary to cut up in little pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sambal (chili pepper paste)
  • 3 teaspoons liquid smoke (I like smoky flavored stuff)
  • 2 liter Coca-Cola
  • 1 14oz can condensed milk
  • 1 barbecue sauce of choice


Cut up the onions and garlic, although i think this may be unnecessary since they will be thrown out after cooking. Throw them into the crock pot.

Pour about half of the Coca-cola into the crock pot. Make sure it's regular Coca-Cola, not the diet or zero variety, that would just be nasty (I think).

Pour in the can of condensed milk. Take a few licks from the can after all is poured out, you know you want to. Mmmmm sweetness.

Add the salt, pepper, sambal, and liquid smoke. The 1tsp salt is very little. If you taste the sauce, it may be a little bland. I prefer it this way as you can add salt to taste in the mixture that gets poured onto the meat at the end. Also if you smell the concoction, it doesn't smell too good but don't worry, it'll taste good in the end. I think that is because of the carbonation making things funky.

Carefully place the pork in the crock pot to avoid splashing. The Coca-Cola and condensed milk is just asking for ants to come. Add the rest of the Coca-Cola to the pot to cover the pork.

Cook on low for 8+ hours. We cooked our pork for 12 hours. We started ours at 8pm the night before so that we could have it ready before lunch the next day. We had a hard time sleeping because the aroma filled up the house and smelled so good.

After the pork is cooked, let it cool for a bit. Remove the meat from the crock pot into a pan. We had to take it out in large chunks as the meat was too big to remove in one shot.

Remove the bones, skin, and excess fat from the meat. Easier to place the meat and excess (bones, skin, and fat) in separate containers. The bowl we had was too small so I had to place the meat back into the pan.

With the bones removed, shred the meat with forks by pulling the meat apart (hence, pulled pork).

Strain about two cups of the liquid left over and salt to taste. I recall other recipes adding more ingredients to the liquid, so go ahead and experiment if you want to. We do not have a fine strainer so some chunks were still left in. Use a fat separator to cut down on the oil (unfortunately we also did not have this). Pour this over the meat and mix thoroughly.

Place whatever size you want on your buns, add BBQ sauce, mayonnaise (wife likes it with a little mayo on the buns), and enjoy.



  1. Best pulled pork I ever had in my life!

  2. You wrote "Cook on low for 8+ hours ...."
    Could you please tell more about this. Have you used oven? Temperature, mode etc.
    I'm a newbie in cooking, but that receipt looks very interesting.
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Slow cookers usually either have 'High' or 'Low' temperatures. Use Low for 8 hours to get meat falling apart off the bone.

  4. Just read your article. Good one. I liked it. Keep going. you are a best writer your site is very useful and informative thanks for sharing!

Fishing Pole/Rod Dryer

My friend, Ross, wanted to fix his fishing pole guides but did not have all the necessary equipment. Luckily, he had a friend that had rod building equipment. I had mentioned to my friend that one day I would like to wrap a custom pole. So my friend said hey look at the stuff you would need. The most expensive piece of equipment was the rod dryer. His friend's dryer was retail bought at some online fishing store, I want to say Cabela's but I am unsure of that. The dryers can be pricey. So my friend and I looked up cheap DIY alternatives. We found many and the concept was the same. Slow rotating motor with a cup to hold the end of the rod. Here is our take on a dryer. Some of the parts to make this was given to me by Ross, thanks dude.

Canoe Stand

When my wife got her canoe, there were only a few instructions on the net for building stands. There were many pictures of PVC canoe stands but not much, if any, detailed instructions on making them. Here is my shot at a detailed tutorial (this was also on a site that is no more that I had awhile back).

Project: Canoe stands x 2
Project Time: About 3 hours
Material Cost: Around $45

Easy to make canoe stands made out of PVC pipes. These stands have rope padding in place of the standard foam padding I have seen. Personally, I think the rope looks better than foam.

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if your stand fails to do its job or if you get hurt making the stands. I am writing this because seems like every project has a disclaimer because someone somehow screws up.
