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
I let mine sit in the fridge for almost a whole day, but yes you could throw it in the crockpot right away. I thought it was going to have to cook for 12 hours or more, but I checked it at 10 hours and it was ready to go. I could probably have taken it out earlier too.

I have actually taken the frozen shoulder, put it in the crock, piled the rub on top, and leave for work. Come back at dinner and it tastes great. It still cannot compare to a fine slow grilled butt but it works pretty good for a weekday.

I'm eating burritos made with the pulled pork right now! Just pile some on a tortilla with your favorite bbq sauce, cheese, and nuke till cheese is melty. Yum!

I have finished my first Boston Butt using my own rub with elements of the rub here added. I also adapted the recipe here a little The Way the Cookie Crumbles Blog Archive crockpot pulled pork finishing with a BBQ sauce as they do.



Does this look like it should? Not being from the land of BBQ I am not too sure, but it seems right and tastes delicious.

Now.. The thing my wife and I cannot figure out is why does everyone put this on buns when you can just stand around the crock pot eating it directly out of it as we have been doing since dinner is not for a few hours?
