Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork is one of those great southern dishes that once you have tried, you will always enjoy. Depending on where you first had this dish or grew up, you will have to decide what kind of sauce to use.

There are many sauces to choose from with Tomato (Ketchup), Vinegar or Mustard varieties being the most comment.  Everyone has a secret recipe and all of them are really good.  Here is one we like to do in cold weather when we cannot use our smokers outside.


Cooking Steps

  1. Place one sliced onion at the bottom of Crock Pot.
  2. Rub pork roast with seasonings, salt and pepper.
  3. Place roast in slow cooker on top of the sliced onion. Cover with the second sliced onion and add a little water or beer to cover the bottom of the Crock Pot.  This will help start the moist cooking process! Cover and cook on low 8 to 12 hours.
  4. Remove roast. Remove and discard strings, fat, water, onions and grease remaining in pot.
  5. When pork roast is cool enough to handle, use a fork or your fingers to pull it apart until the entire roast is shredded.
  6. Return the pulled pork to the crockpot. Mix in the second chopped onion, some of the BBQ sauce and cover. Heat on high for 1-3 hours or until the onions are soft.
  7. Serve on large, crusty buns with your favorite BBQ sauce and crisp, homemade slaw.  Enjoy!

NOTE: If you do not have a slow cooker, this recipe can also be used with a roasting pan and the oven.  Adjust cooking times as need to account for high temperatures.

4 to 5 lb Pork Butt (Shoulder) Roast.  Remove strings and cut into pieces as needed so that it will fit into the crock pot.

2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika or your favorite pork rub.  Smoked Paprika will help to give it that little smokey flavor!

Garlic, Salt and Pepper to taste.

2 or 3 medium onions sliced.  You can use more if you would like a sweeter pulled pork.

Small bottle (16 oz or more) of your favorite BBQ sauce.
