Margot's Pulled Pork

I had this pulled pork for the first time about a year ago at my friend's Margot's house. She served it at her daughter's Birthday party. Don and I could not get over how delicious it was and were even more amazed that she made it herself and that it had not been catered from one of the fancy smoke houses nearby. Then she told me that she made it, gasp, in her crock pot!

I was eager to make and replicate the recipe. Not only is it one of the easiest things to make, but one of the tastiest!

What you'll need:

Large crock pot with a slow cook 10 hour setting
1 pork shoulder
2 jars of your favorite barbeque sauce (or you could make it from scratch!)
1 large onion
1/2 Cup of cider vinegar
Pour vinegar and 1/2 jar of BBQ sauce in your crock pot
Cut onion in to 6 pieces and place 3 on the bottom, mix
Place pork shoulder on top of the sauce
Pour remaining sauce from the jar over the pork shoulder and remaining onions
Cover, cook 10 hours on slow (overnight is great)

After 10 hours, remove cover to cool a bit, remove pork shoulder and let sit a good half an hour.

There is a good deal of fat and bone to work through, but it will be with it. S

Separate meat from fat, bone, grizzle, etc....
With your hands (or a fork) pull pork meats apart. When all the pork has been pulled place in a roasting pan and cover with the other jar of BBQ sauce. Bake 20 minutes at 350 and serve.

(Or place in fridge overnight until ready to serve. Remove from fridge 1/2 hour to bring to room temp and place in 350 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes)
