Pulled pork

So I failed at putting up other recipes...o well, that might be an ongoing project. In the mean time...

Pork butt (tee-hee) was on sale for .97 cents at Kroger this week. I grabbed the smallest one I could (10 pounds), an onion, a jar of pickles, and some bbq sauce. Once home I grabbed my handy dandy crockpot, rough sliced the onions and threw them in the pot. Matt cut the pork into smaller chunks to help expedite the cooking and breaking down process (pork butt is a wonderful piece of meat, but has a lot of connective tissue that needs to slowly cook away to become wonderful flavor). We topped off the onions and pork with some of the sauce, 1/2 cup or so of pickle juice, 1/2 cup of water, house seasoning (garlic powder, salt, pepper, red pepper) and it is now cooking away on the high, 4 hour setting. This started at 1:30 and the flavor is great, but it needs more time to become tender and delicious. Give it a shot! We are serving it on yeast rolls, with the pickles, and sliced onions at small group tonight. I think we are also having potato salad and a green salad so it should be a great time to be had by all!

I forgot that I added some shakes of Worchestershire sauce and liquid smoke!
