Crock Pot Pulled Pork BBQ

April 24, 2012

Life happened.

But BBQ is amazing.

First, lets start with the fact that the last few weeks of life have been momentous. First of all, I decided to eat meat again…it all happened with an excellent prosciutto encrusted lamb on some super tasty homemade rolls brought to yours truly by the lovely ladies who own Cellar Liquors in downtown Steamboat. This was best decision number one. The next best things all kind of happened at once in correlation with closing weekend at the mountain which was full of live music and skiing and some amazing times together. And then we all decided to go to Aspen for the heck of it.

And that is where this post picks up. I decided that it was necessary to bring a crock pot of pulled pork on the adventure, because, well, what is a spring trip without a BBQ? So I went by the Steamboat Meat & Seafood Co. and bought a 4lb pork butt for the crock pot. One thing about my renewed meat eating is that I am going to attempt to buy only local. So I found out that this little piggy grew up on the front range (which is the Eastern side of CO in front of the mountains for those of you who don’t reside near here). Anyways, pretty close to home.  So here is the recipe…and some great photos to follow.

Pulled Pork:

1 pork butt (Boston butt) I used 4lbs

salt, pepper, cayenne to taste

Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce (or any great sauce…but this one is the best unless you make one)

Crock Pot

Directions: Rub pork with spices and place in crock pot, fat side down. Turn heat to low and let cook for 10-12 hours or until it is literally falling apart. Use two forks to pull it apart and discard the bone (do not discard any liquid). Add about 1/3 of the jar of BBQ sauce and stir well. Save the rest of the sauce for serving. Make some great sides (I suggest Jiffy Bread and some cole slaw at the very least). Serve!

So yummy.

We also roasted some potatoes for the feast.
