How to Make Perfect Pulled Pork

How to Make Perfect Pulled Pork
Not only is May National Burger Month, but it is also National BBQ Month! To celebrate, we’re sharing some tips and tricks to making delicious, fall-off-the-bone pulled pork, an all-time favorite BBQ dish. We can all agree that perfect pulled pork is tender, flavorful, juicy and pretty much just melts in your mouth. To accomplish this perfection, follow these instructions for preparing pulled pork in your slow cooker!
 
  1. Pick the perfect pork shoulder. It’s essential to start out with premium-quality meat. The best piece of meat for pulled pork is a 4 to 7 pound whole Boston butt. However, depending on the number of people you’d like to serve and if you’d like leftovers, you can always go bigger. Be sure the pork has a layer of fat at the bottom and that the bone goes at least halfway through. 
  2. Prepare the pork. Whether you use a mixture of ingredients, a marinade, a dry rub or a brine solution, it’s vital to adequately prepare the meat to give it the extra moisture and flavoring it needs. This is crucial for the slow cooking process so you don’t end up with tough, dried out meat.
  3. Combine and cook. Once you’ve prepared the pork, combine all the ingredients, place the pork in the slow cooker, and cook it low and slow until the pork is fall-apart tender. Depending on the slow cooker’s temperature, cook times can range from 5-10 hours.  
  4. Remove and shred. Once cooked, remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred the meat using two forks. For extra flavor and juiciness, return the shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir, letting the meat soak in the flavorful juices. Add your favorite BBQ sauce for even #mooreflavor! 
  5. Serve and enjoy! The great thing about pulled pork is its versatility. Once you’ve made a batch, you can enjoy it on its own, as a sandwich, on a salad, on nachos, in pasta and even in tacos or enchiladas!  Check out some of our favorite recipes below!
