Very easy, quick, juicy pulled pork. Great for bbq. *Note that "prep time" includes 20 minutes to come to pressure.

I have a instant Pot. I had to cut around 2 pounds off the 8 pound butt to fit in the cooker. Pork was about 75% done(blood around the bone) after 1 hour. I drained off most of the liquid, cut into smaller pieces, removed the bone, and added BBQ sauce. Cooked for 20 more minutes . Turned out pretty good
