Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

READY IN: 6hrs 30mins
Recipe by Chef Joyous

For best results, make this a day before eating. Temptation is great to eat it before it is done as it smells so YUMMY, but it is best if you let it "marinate" over night.

Good the first day. Great on the second day! I used 2 tablespoons of hickory seasoning (liquid smoke) and when adding the bbq sauce I added approx 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar to give it some tang. But the vinegar may not be necessary depending on the type of sauce used. I was using original Sweet Baby Rays and it needed kicked up a little. This is my new pulled pork recipe from here on out. Good recipe!
