So many ways to prepare Delicious pulled pork. If you don't want to cook in the oven for a bunch of hours, this is an alternative method that everyone who's had it raves about. Rub the pork with salt and pepper, nothing else. Slice two large onions into petals. Mince 4 garlic cloves.
Get a heavy skillet (I use cast iron) hot. Add 4 tbs. or so of cooking oil to the pan. Sear all sides of the roast to give it a great, brown crust. Turn off the stove and place the roast on a bed of onion petals. Sprinkle more onion on top, along with the garlic. Make sure the fat side is up. Put the lid on and set the cooker to medium. Let it cook until a half hour before it's time to serve it. Remove the roast to a heavy, large pan and pull it into bite-sized chunks. Fire up the smoker, or grill and place wood on the fire to make smoke. Place the pan of pulled pork into the smoke filled environment and let sit for 10 minutes. Stir and smoke for another ten minutes. Remove from teh smoke and place in a large bowl. Stir the drippings from the slow cooker back into the meat. Serve with Carolina style barbecue sauce, a tomato/brown sugar style barbecue sauce, and a honey mustard sauce, and good buns.
It will taste like it's been smoking for a whole day, with a luxuriously tender and juicy mouth feel.
Just another method for when you don't want to, or can't monitor a smoker all day.
There are many here who will call my method sacrilegious. But the proof is in the eating. It makes very tasty pulled pork.
