BBQ Venison Sandwich | Slow Cooker Venison Barbecue

  • Author: Miss AK
  • Total Time: 8 hour & 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


These BBQ Venison Sandwiches are so easy to make. You need a venison roast, some barbecue sauce, a few pantry ingredients, and your slow cooker!


  • 1 (2-4lb) venison roast
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil 
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced 
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce 
  • 1/2 cup beer or beef/venison stock 
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard 
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • buns of choice, for serving 
  • pickles, for serving


  1. Start by letting the roast come to room temperature for 30 minutes before you sear it (if you can). This helps create a nice crust on the sear you’ll perform by ensuring the meat heats evenly. Then, pat it dry with a paper towel. 
  2. Next, heat a skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Once hot, sear the roast on all sides until a nice, brown crust has formed. Take your time – this could take 15-20 minutes. 
  3. Then, place your seared roast into the bottom of a slow cooker. Cover it with the onions, garlic, barbecue sauce, beer or stock, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. 
  4. Cook for 8 hours on low or until the meat is literally falling apart. If it is too tough to pull apart, it needs more time. Shred the meat with forks.
  5. To serve, pull some out, place it on a bun, add more barbecue sauce, and top with pickles. Enjoy!
