    Splash035's Note:

    In the search for the best pulled pork recipe there were several that I found that were appealing. I combined a couple recipes and added my own flare to make this delicious dish. The recipe is easy enough to include my kids. My 3 year old really enjoyed asking the butcher for some pork butt, while my 4 year old enjoyed applying the rub.

    1. 1
      1. 6 hours before cooking, mix all ingredients for the rub and apply the rub liberally onto the butt, cover with plastic, and store in the refrigerator.
    2. 2
      3. Slice one onion and place in crock pot.
    3. 3
      4. Put in the butt and cover with the other onion, sliced. Pour in the ginger ale. Cover and cook on LOW for about 12 hours, turning once or twice in the process to ensure more even cooking.
    4. 4
      5. Remove the meat, strain and save the onion and 1/4-1/2 cup of the liquid.

      6. With latex gloves, pull the pork apart by hand and add it back to the crockpot, discarding any remaining fat, bones, or skin. Most of the fat will have melted away.

      8. Chop up the saved onion into tiny pieces and add back to the crock pot.

      Great slow cooker recipe. The pork turned out very moist and we loved the idea of adding the onions and then combining them with the shredded pork afterwards. Very easy to prepare with great results. We had wonderful pulled pork sandwiches last night and I know the leftovers will be equally as good. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
