.333 cup(s) cider vinegar
.25 cup(s) packed brown sugar
.25 cup(s) tomato paste
2 tablespoon(s) sweet paprika

4 pound(s) boneless pork shoulder blade roast (fresh pork butt), cut into 4 pieces
12 soft sandwich buns or ciabatta rolls, warmed
Dill pickles (optional)
Potato chips (optional)
Hot sauce (optional)
In 4 1/2- to 6-quart slow-cooker pot, stir onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined. Add pork to sauce mixture and turn to coat well with sauce.
Cover slow cooker with lid and cook pork mixture on low setting as manufacturer directs, 8 to 10 hours or until pork is very tender.
With tongs, transfer pork to large bowl. Turn setting on slow cooker to high; cover and heat sauce to boiling to thicken and reduce slightly.
While sauce boils, with 2 forks, pull pork into shreds. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and toss with sauce to combine. Cover slow cooker and heat through on high setting if necessary.
Spoon pork mixture onto bottom of sandwich buns; replace tops of buns. Serve sandwiches with pickles, potato chips, and hot sauce if you like.
Anyone have a pulled pork recipe they have used and worked out well?
I will be using my pit.
They had a "cookoff" in Richmond, VA a few years ago, when my daughter and son-in-law had a "carry-out" resturant (they still cater) and which featured such personalities as "Bobby Flay" and my son-in-law's "pulled pork" BBQ won the prize for the "BEST" in Richmond at that show..........
He uses pork shoulder, cooks it in a mobile cook trailer for about 13 hours, as I remember, and then "PULLS" the "lean" and mixes with his "secret" sauce......here's the results.......sorry I don't have the ingredients for the sauce......
Austin......here's a "brisket" you may want to take a look at......
very similiar looking to what my son-in-law makes,
but will give you another "taste treat" idea.....
study the article because it tells you exactly what you
need to do to cook it right.........and, it is delicious with your
favorite BBQ Sauce...he cooked one for our Christmas Dinner, but I failed to get a photo....
by-the-way, he also lived in Texas for awhile and may have learned to cook it there.........
