Author: Lisa Duncan
Recipe type: Crock Pot
- 1 4–5 lb. Boston Pork Butt
- Seasonings for Dry Rub: Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder or Salt, Onion Powder, Brown Sugar, Dried Mustard
- 1 Onion
- Garlic – 1 clove fresh or 1 teaspoon minced
- 1 Can Chicken or Beef Stock
- Liquid Smoke
- 1 Bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce (I’ve tried others, but this is the best BBQ sauce for pulled pork)
- DRY RUB:
- Place defrosted Boston Pork Butt in a large Tupperware container.
- Liberally shake Liquide Smoke over all sides.
- Next rub all sides with the dry seasonings. Use what you have in the cupboard – salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, dried mustard. I just dash and flip, dash and flip. If you like it sweeter use more brown sugar and adjust to your liking.
- Let it all set together in the refrigerator over night.
- COOK PULLED PORK RECIPE:
- Once marinated, place the Boston Pork Butt in the crock pot, fat side down. You can cut in half if needed to fit in your crock pot.
- Dice onion and garlic and place in crock pot on and around pork.
- Add one can of broth.
- Add 1 cup of BBQ Sauce
- Cook for approximately 8 hours on low. Or adjust the time down and cook on high for approximately 6 hours. You know it’s done when it falls apart when you try and lift it from the pot. You can easily cook in the crock pot overnight.
- When done, carefully lift the pork from the pot and place on a cutting board. Drain the liquid through a colander and reserve the onions and garlic. You can also reserve a bit of the liquid to add back into the crock pot to keep the pork extra moist.
- Pull the pork apart with two forks and then chop slightly.
- Return pork to crock pot.
- Place the BBQ pulled pork back into the crock pot and add the reserved onions/garlic and gently toss.
- Next add some Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce to taste and toss to coat. Add as much or as little as you like.
- Lastly, add some additional dashes of Liquid Smoke to taste.
- It’s ready to eat or you can keep it on warm and serve later. You can’t over cook this dish.
If you want to eat this Pulled Pork Recipe at 6:00 pm, I put it in the pot at 8:00am. Or, I’ve also cooked it over night and then just pull it in the morning and put back in the pot with the BBQ and keep on warm/low until ready to eat. I serve it on Potato rolls with some slaw and beans on the side. Or the Hawaiian Rolls are a great idea for pulled pork sliders. These are great to serve at parties or pot luck dinners.
