  • Pulled Pork in the Crockpot



    For those of you who are like me, sadly in a place where you either don't have or can't have a smoker to make smoked meat, you might be missing pulled pork.

    Here's how I made some.


    Ingredients:

    - Boston Butt roast (or other pork roast that's well-marbled)

    - 1 medium yellow onion

    - whole jalapeno peppers in juice

    - Chicken stock (I had some left over from the last time I boiled up a chicken to make soup)


    Slice up the onion into discs, and put ingredients into the crockpot. I put in 5 or 6 whole jalapenos and about 1/3 of the jar's worth of juice.


    Cook on low overnight or all day. When the meat is easily pulled apart, you're good.


    Pull the meat out onto a cutting board and pull apart using a couple of forks.


    Put the pulled pork into your oven on the lowest temperature setting for about an hour, turning occasionally. This dries it out to the consistency of BBQ.


    Dress the Q appropriately with your favorite sauce, vinegar, mustard, or not at all (it's good even without sauce) and enjoy!

    In your face, Space Coyote!

        Oddly enough, I sent something similar in for the "pork" portion of the cookbook challenge.


        Shoulder is great because it's cheap. I urge you all to try different spice combos. I don't use the liquid because I cook it in a Dutch oven in the oven at 250 for 4 to 6 hours.

          I did this this weekend --- I put a little ginger in it while it was cooking --- yummy, ginger and onions go well together.

          It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

            One of my favorite meals. I love how I always have leftovers for days. I'm always checking to see if the Boston Butts are on sale when I'm at the store.

                Liquid smoke helps greatly with trying to replicate meat you'd normally cook in a smoker.

                  I'm afraid of liquid smoke, should I be? Is it a fairly natural product?

                    Yeah this is definitely an awesome way to cook it. There's an old post at Son Of Grok with his recipe for pulled pork in the crockpot too.

                      Liquid smoke is no scarier than traditional smoking. My bottle's ingredients are water and natural hickory smoke concentrate.


                      Here's a link describing how it is made:

                        I'm making one today.


                        5 pound bone in shoulder, half a sitck of butter and a bottle of "all natural" low carb bbq suace (probably in the 20 of 80/20). On low for 9 hours in the crock pot.... love it.

                          I'm kinda famous (LOL) for my crockpot pulled pork. but the secret to my success isn't primal--Coca Cola. the long cooking period is done in 1/2 beef broth and 1/2 Coca-cola. this is an old-fashioned, southern recipe is SO GOOD. i also add some liquid smoke to the bbq sauce for the 2nd phase of cooking and stir in some slow cooked browned onions.

                            @lolly --- I thought the secret was Dr. Pepper --- that's what I have been told


                            I put ginger in the one I did recently because I found a recipe that called fro ginger ale. The taste of ginger was really subtle in the finished product -- really nice.

                              I just made some for the first time on Sunday! I used a 10lb shoulder cut, injected it with some liquid smoke and poured half a bottle of bbq sauce over it. Turned out great!
