Pulled Pork

I have NEVER made this in my life. And my husband requested it. I was a little apprehensive, but after researching a few recipes, I decided to give it a go. It was a resounding success, so much so he wanted to take it to work with him so he could show off his wife's cooking skills to his coworkers! He didn't b/c selfishness took over! LOL :D

Pulled Pork

3 to 4 lb Boston Butt cut of Pork
1 large onion, sliced thin
1 16 oz bottle Sweet Baby Ray's Bar-b-que sauce

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs Chili powder
1 Tbs Ground Cumin
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp red pepper

The night before you are going to make it, mix the rub together and thoroughly coat the meat with the rub and allow to sit overnight in the rub.

The next morning...

Slice onions thin and lay on the bottom of crock pot. Lay the rubbed pork butt on top of the onions. Top with the bar-b-que sauce. Set on high, cook for 6-8 hours. Turn to low, shred meat in the crock pot.

I took several opportunties during the day to skim off the fat from the top. It was well worth taking the time to do that.

It really was yummy. I served with coleslaw and corn tortillas. My family, who is not gluten free, ate it on buns. I had mine on crisped corn tortillas, it was wonderful.

Sounds great...but just so you know. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce is not gluten free. It has modified food starch. Please be careful what you label as gf.

Thank you, Anonymous. At the time of this original posting Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce WAS on a safe list from their company. You should ALWAYS confirm an ingredient is gluten free prior to use. If SBR's is not longer gluten free, that happened well after this posting.

Thank you for bringing it to everyone's attention.
