This looks to be the basic slow cook recipe, mine called for ginger ale instead of water:

Here is a basic JD BBQ recipe, I sub tomato sauce and puree for the ketchup, and used brown sugar instead of molass''s.

I'm telling ya, it's cheap, fast and healthy and it freezes well. My only upgrade was to grass fed pork instead of grain fed, but I really doubt you can taste the difference, though your body would appreciate the Grass fed.

Both links w/f/s

Re: Pulled Pork-it's whats for Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner

Looks absolutely delicious man. My mom got me a slow cooker when I moved off to college like 2 years ago, and it's still in the box haha. The food is infitely better, so once I return from India this summer I will be setting that sucker up for some grass fed pig.

Re: Pulled Pork-it's whats for Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner

Is there any alternatives if you don't have a slow cooker?

Oven, grill, pressure cooker, hole in the ground.

Here is a recipe for pulled pork in the oven. It is very good. (I do not make sandwiches out of it.)

Re: Pulled Pork-it's whats for Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner

Jay, I thought you got a proper smoker, and here you are cooking pulled pork without the most important spice?

(actually, even when I had mine, I would often cook it overnight in the oven and then finish it for a few hours in the smoker just to get the flavor; keeping the fire going long enough to do it all in the smoker was pretty tedious).

I do think it's nicer when the ends of the fibers have a bit of that black, smoky, crunchy taste, but it's darned good stuff no matter how you cook it!

Try a recipe that's olive oil based, I used to have one (which I've lost now) and it was fantastic. I know, oil FAT!!! But its not so bad in terms of fats, mostly unsaturated and the texture is great. It is awesome if you're using it to grill with too.

Re: Pulled Pork-it's whats for Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner

Looks awesome Jay. I did something similar with a pork butt a week or so ago. Added a can of El Pato, onions, cumin, cinnamon, paprika, and garlic and turned it into carnitas.

My employer thanks you for that plug.

Thanks Scott, came out great. Thought of you last weekend, was at this big outdoor party, must have had 6 - 10 grills going. Walked over to the guy roasting the whole pig, asked for head!!!!!! Didn't have the nerve to try the brains but the pork was really good.

Tell me, you work for Jack Daniels!!!!!!!!!!

Many years ago, we did a Derby party, rented a motor home, first stop, the Wild Turkey Distiller, had a great visit, this was before the fire.

BTW, never did see a horse as we were in the infield, but we did polish off about 60 Mint Juleps between us.
