I'm a Yank. This is a Southern dish. We meet in the middle. Pulled pork shoulder slow-cooked in spices and sauces, great for a low-stress day, potluck, or any get-together. Put it on before work, ready when you get home! Fantastic over a bun, johnnycake, or just by itself.

USE ROOTBEER!!I made this the other day. It was actually my second time. This time I substituted some of the water with a good rootbeer used a little honey bourbon(don't worry, the alcohol cooks out) and some honey, cut back on the sugar a little bit and balanced out the sweetness with some hot sauce and red pepper flakes. It was much much better the second time around. Hope someone trys my version and I hope you like it!! Read More

I made this yesterday exactly as written. Smelled really good. Had some rolls to make like bbq sandwiches. It didnt come out as thick as I thought it would. Maybe next time I will reserve some of the bbq sauce or not add the water. But overall it was a really good flavor. We had lots left cuz I made a 5lb roast for 3 of us. So we will be eating it again tonight. Just trying to figure what to eat it with... Read More

I put this on before church and after watching a couple a couple of football games when we got home we totaled it. It was so tender it fell apart as I was getting it out of the crockpot dropping back in and splashing the juices all over the place including my Sunday pants! The only change I made was to add some Liquid Smoke. This is a definite favorite in this house. Read More

This recipe is pretty good! I grew up on carolina bbq so I can't give this 5 stars.... but for bbq from a slow cooker and not a bbq pit this is awesome Here are my mods: Used Sweet Baby Rays Maple Sugar bbq sauce and left out the honey and brown sugar. it was plenty sweet enough I dumped about half a bottle of hot sauce into my pot before it had enough kick to it I left out the celery Added a few splashes of white vinegar and maybe a teaspoon of spicy brown mustard this turned out so well I'll probably make it again for a fourth of july party I'm going to. DELICIOUS Read More

Hi all I'm the guy who contributed this recipe but no longer have the ability to access the account due to a hacker lol. Anyway I wanted to address the consistency of the sauce. Yes it's a bit watery but I have a great fix. After removing the pork shoulder from the crock to shred it use an immersion blender on the sauce remaining in the pot. Just whizz it all up. This will not only thicken the sauce but also more evenly distribute the flavors. Once done add the shredded pork back to the pot. If you don't have an immersion blender get one lol. Kidding. A regular blender would work too. Hope this helps! Read More
