This was really good. I like to make mine in the oven instead of a slow cooker and our family eats this with cole slaw on the sandwich. I find it really adds to it. But it is still very good on its own.
This was really good. Since it's made in a crockpot, we knew we were going to lose the smoky, caramelized flavors that we love so much in Southern barbecue. So, we made a couple adjustments to try and get some of that back. We used a 4 lb. Boston butt trimmed of all visible fat. Massaged a favorite spice rub into the meat and wrapped it tightly in a double layer of plastic wrap and refrigerated it for about 3 hours. Then, after unwrapping the roast, placed it in the slow cooker liner along with 1/4 cup water and a 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke and cooked it as directed, until the meat was fork-tender. Instead of a bottled barbecue sauce, we used a favorite homemade sauce. The pulled pork turned out moist and flavorful. Just be sure to use a good quality barbecue sauce since the flavor of this dish depends mostly upon your choice of sauce! Next time I would also sear the roast on all sides until golden brown before placing in the crockpot.
