Crockpot Pulled Pork

David and I had this a while back at a pot-luck dinner we had with a few of our friends right around the holidays, and we have been dying to get our hands on the recipe ever since. Well, we still haven’t managed to get our hands on the recipe from Brad and Audrey, so we took to the interwebs and did a little research to make sure when we finally tried our own, it would be what we were looking for. We knew theirs involved the meat cooking in some kind of marinade or vinegar sauce or something, but we decided to go for a dry rub and to let the meat cook in its own juice, and I have to say, this was a positive life choice. I definitely recommend giving this one a try, especially with memorial day and summer right around the conner, its great for days when you want a meal that tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen or over a grill ALL. DAY. but in reality you were out sipping brews by the pool while your crock pot did all the work. So, Here’s what ya need to know about making a crockpot BBQ.

Ingredients:

  • 1 fresh pork shoulder or fresh ham
  • Liquid Smoke
  • Ground red pepper
  • Salt

Place meat in a dry crock pot and cook for almost 10 hours (we only cooked ours for 8…because 10 seemed too long). There will be plenty of liquid in the bottom of pot when you finish.

Place it back in the crockpot until you are ready to serve it, OR if you are ready to chow down, place the bbq on a bun, or eat it plain, and enjoy that little taste of summer, with minimal effort. So delicious!
