I've done red wine and cider but not white as it brings no extra flavor.

I woke at 3:30, and came into the kitchen and stuck a thermometer in the pork and it was done! I really could have taken it out much sooner. It actually seemed a little too fall off the bone tender. I had to get it out of the crockpot in chunks. But then after I bagged it and put it in the fridge it looked like BBQ this morning. So I had some!

It was pretty good, but will be better when I can get some better BBQ sauce and get the vinegar/red pepper sauce mix down. Any tips on that? Or do most of you guys just like it w/ BBQ Sauce?

I mop my butt (!) as it's cooking then just add BBQ sauce before serving.

Ok, I'll just have bbq sauce available. I would make some, but dinner tonight will be a quick thing. Good thing the main course is done!

Hi,

OK grabbed a shoulder here today and am just about to try this out. After I do the rub how long should I let it sit before the crock pot?

No liquid is added, just let it cook in the fats that will melt out of the cut correct?

Cook on the lowest setting of the crock pot?

This is my first attempt at "pulled pork" and also the crock pot that was just given to me...

Any advice, tips, suggestion, amendment to what has come before in the thread?

Tks

You can put the butt directly into the crock after the rub, no need to wait. Yes no juice, it will make plenty on its own. Set on "low", not on "warm".

Advice? Use napkins.
