Default Crockpot pulled pork - super easy

Lately my wife has wanted some sort of pulled pork bbq/carnitas just about every week. She dug up this recipe and made some last week. I was VERY skeptical that it would work, but it turned out great. I thought there was no way it would be tender, but the fat renders out and does the trick. Can't get much easier than this.

3-4 lb pork shoulder
1 package of McCormicks dry BBQ seasoning
1/2 cup water

Put the pork shoulder in the crockpot and pour the packet over the top. Pour the water in the bottom. Cook for 1 hr per lb on high or 2 hrs per lb on low. When it's cooked, remove and shred with a fork. Back into the crockpot to keep it warm.

Super easy and very tasty. The kiddos loved it too. I'm adding this one to my lease crock pot recipe list.

An added twist it to add a jar of salad peppers to the pot with your pork. Kinda adds an Italian taste to the flavor. A bottle of Italian salad dressing works as well.

The wife and I LOVED it, it was even better the next day warmed back up. Also, I made some pulled pork taco's with it one night that were fabulous.

This will deffinately be one of our routine dinners for here on out.

I havent been home to try this yet but I have a question.

Would some of this pork, and some chopped onion and tomato (or some home made pico), and maybe some hot sauce on a tortillia make a good taco?

Thinking of doing this for after church breakfast tacos. Sounds pretty cheap to make. Someone normally does tacos or pancakes once a month for a little social hour/fundraiser after church.

Most of the time its egg, bacon, cheese, and maybe onions and peppers in the breakfast tacos.
I like shredded beef or pork even for breakfast!!

I have a dummy question. When you say "shoulder" are you just talking about a big chunk of meat from the hindquarter?

I think I grew up calling everything the wrong thing, so I'm not really sure if what I'm thinking is right.

1. Yes it would make a great taco for church. See Stins comment.

2. The shoulder and butt are different cuts of meat. I think either will work. Just get a chunk that looks like an actual part of a pig, preferably with a bone in it. Not something that is shredded and then pressed into a log shape.

I cut all this stuff up myself, so it's ridiculous that I don't know what it's called.
I just de-bone everything, and keep the stuff that looks good.

I have a bunch of big chunks off the butt that I wasn't sure what to do with. I'll give them a try with this.

I made it last night for my self. Only problem was that I have 5 pounds of left overs. Excellent! I think next time though I am going to take the meat out of the crock pot about an hour or so early. Then place in a foil pan uncovered and put in the smoker to finish. Hopefully add a little smoke flavor to it.

I just bought another shoulder to do at the lease this weekend while I'm turkey hunting. I'm gonna make a dutch oven peach cobbler too. I don't know how it could get much better than that meal.

Tried the pulled pork idea tonight with just Cattlemen's BBQ sauce as the seasoning, and it was DANG good!

My wife does something similar, she takes a boned out front shoulder (Deer or Hog) and puts in the crock pot after she has seasoned it with Tony's Creole seasoning, Lawery's Garlic seasonall, Garlic Powder and Onion Powder. Then she puts in two cans of cream of mushroom soup and using one of the cans, adds one can water. She does this at 6 am and turns the crock pot on high and lets it cook all day. When we get home from work (about 5 pm), we have a roast with gravy waiting for us ready to eat, that so tender it melts in your mouth. She serves it over rice or bread.

Got a 3 1/2 pound whole loin in the crock pot now. I put some Weber Mesquite seasoning on it, a little extra black pepper, and some barnacle dust. Also put a little worschesire in the water, and chopped in a 1/2 onion, and a small bell pepper.........We'll see tonight!

I predict it will be great, even though I don't know what barnacle dust is !

I think it's the cut of pork that does it. There's enough fat and connective tissue that is just cooks the thing down to super tender. Pork tastes good with just about anything, so this recipe will work with whatever flavoring you like.

If you have a smoker you can smoke some of that pig. I like to let it soak over night in some

Moore's or dales ( I like moore's better less salt)
Whiskey (have to use KY bourbon)
Worcestershire sauce
a couple drops of franks hot sauce or Texas Pete
Some garlic powder and onion powder
And whatever other seasonings you want to put in there.

I just put these in to my taste. So there really is no measuring to it. I have done deer and pig like this and they turned out great.

After watching Alton Brown on the Food Network, i feel confident in saying they call it a butt on both ends because of the shape of the leg. The top portion on the front leg is called a butt, more specifically a Boston butt, and the rear upper being the ham, and the lower parts of the legs on both front and back are called shank cuts.

I am going to try that next weekend when the kids come over

I don't mean to sound like an idiot (too late) but where are you finding a dry b-b-q rub? I've looked at Minyards and Kroger with no luck. I guess this weekend I'll just HAVE to go to Cabelas and look . If you could tell me where you are finding the McCormick I'd appreciate it.

Try Tom Thumb. That's where my wife gets it. It's called BBQ Pulled Pork in one of those little envelopes in the spice section.

Thanks for sharing. I plan on trying this out ASAP. I have been craving some pulled pork for months.

For those wondering about barnacle dust, I believe it is a custom combination of seasonings/spices that a gentelman with the username Barnaclebill makes for friends. I think he is a member here, but he is far more active over on the rodbenders site.
