Best Cuts of Pork for Pulled Pork

Pork Shoulder is the best cut for a melt-in-your-mouth consistency that falls apart easily after being slow cooked. Specifically, the Boston Butt Roast is the part of the shoulder that you’ll want to look for.

How to Make Pulled Pork

Low and slow is the best way to cook pulled pork, and your slow cooker will do the job perfectly in just 5 hours on high or 8 hours on low.

-The combination of ingredients that you use is very forgiving. Liquid smoke adds a hint of smoky flavor but is also optional. Your favorite barbecue sauce will also add a ton of flavor.

My Favorite Crock Pot

This is the Crock Pot that I have, I love that you can sear meat right on the stove-top with it.

It also automatically switches to warm once the cooking time is up, which is hugely convenient when you’re out of the house.
