Growing up in the south I can say that I have been eating Pulled Pork BBQ for a very long time (I’m now in my 50s.) So I have been eating this for many years before most of you ever heard of it. Today I am going to share with you my favorite family recipe. It is delicious and very easy. Great for a summer party (I serve this every year at my fourth of July party.) Not only is it easy and people love it but it is also cheap.
So here goes.
In the south we call the type of meat a Boston Butt. In most of the country it called a Pork Shoulder.
So you will need:
Pork Shoulder (must fit in your crock pot)
1 Cup of White Vinegar
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Pepper
1 Tablespoon of Salt.
Place the Shoulder in the slow cooker. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over the meat. Cook 10 to 12 hours. I usually cook the meat overnight. The next morning allow the meat to cool. Save some of the vinegar mixture to put back in the meat. After the meat has cooled you need to pull the pork. It will fall apart and you just need to pick the fat out of it. I then put it back in the crock pot with enough of the vinegar to keep it moist when you reheat it. Put it back in the refrigerator until a couple of hours before you wish to serve it. Reheat in the slow cooker. It is ready to serve. Buy some of your favorite BBQ sauce and let everyone put on as much sauce as they want. I used to mix the BBQ into the meat but some people love the Pulled Pork BBQ without any sauce.
I like to serve it on a small bun, about the size of a dinner roll. And have some Cole Slaw for those that wish to put that on the BBQ. That’s the way we do it in the south.
So as you can see it’s very easy. The most time consuming part is pulling the pork.
Good Luck and Enjoy!
