Pulled Pork

Thank you all so very much for your help and advice. You have been very kind and helpful -now I know what to do from experts!. I'll certainly have to order the pork butt, but I can now show him what it looks like so he'll do it right! Can't wait to start

All the best to all of you

I know. But someone had already posted the Boston Butt. I wanted the member to be able to see both.

Around here we do sauerkraut with our pork. Cooked in the slow cooker along with potatoes, butter, salt, pepper, water. I guess it's like an eastern European or Russian version?

Oh yeah it's probably German, as sauerkraut's a German word. Mmmm, good stuff.

We also do kielbasa and hot dogs in the slow cooker along with sauerkraut, brown sugar, water, and a little black pepper. I may be leaving something out, but it's yummy.

Ohhh there's little better than the German way with pork shoulder and Kraut!
