Pulled Pork made easey - Crockpot Kookin' -- yeeahhh!!

Posted 08-14-2008 at 11:38 PM by Tom

The key is Stubs BBQ sauce and make sure the cut is a Boston Butt Pork Shoulder (5-7 lbs is the best size). Then you lay the pork fat side up and add about 1/4 of the way up in Stub's and then to the halfway mark with water.

Then in a bowl, make a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, curry, celery salt, onion salt, garlic salt, chili powder, cayenne, cumin, and some fresh cracked pepper.

The amounts of each are about equal accept for a bit extra brown sugar, and don't overdue the cinnamon (really just add a little more of the ones that you like and a little less of the one's you don't, but the curry is the thing that no one can ever pick out since it's not really a typical ingredient).

Mix it together and rub it into the top section of the roast (the fat side) and then sprinkle a bit into the water and stubs mixture. Then you set the croc pot on the low setting, let it sit and it should be done in about 10 - 14 hours (5- 7 lbs).

Make sure that the water doesn't run dry. A lot of it will evaporate in the first few hours, and if it starts to get low, just add more water. Eventually in the 4th or 5th hours it will start to release juices and they will go almost to the top of the croc pot, that's okay. The juices will go back to about half way when the cooking gets toward the end.

Pull it apart, removing as much of the fat as possible. I use a spoon and fork.

For leftovers, I like to put it in a bowl with a little Stub's on it, pop it in the microwave (with cling wrap on it so the moisture doesn't escape) for a minute or so and then make a sandwich.

Texas style pork sandwiches have coleslaw on them, and that's my favorite way (if you've never tried it that way, try it). I also add some lettuce (or raw spinach) on the heel of the bun so the juicy meat and BBQ sauce doesn't make the bottom bun soggy.

That's the road map to my favorite BBQ sandwich.

So good it'll make ya
