Spicy Carolina Style Pulled Pork (In Crock Pot) Recipe

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by buckytom

i made this last week, my first attempt at pulled pork, and it was a winner. i had a spicy carolina style pp sandwich at a native american festival, and got into a chat with the cooks. this was the recipe, from what i can recall as it was told to me. by the way, this is by no means a low fat dish. trying to make it low fat will just not be the same. please enjoy it the way it was meant to be. pork fat rules!

This was my first time ever making pulled pork in the crock pot and it was EXCELLENT! Everyone loved it. We served it with Hawaiian rolls. I will definitely be making it again.

  1. combine the brown sugar, paprika, salt and pepper, and rub the mixture over the roast. wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate a few hours, overnight is best.

  3. place the quartered onions in the bottom of the crock pot. unwrap the roast, and place on top of onions. drizzle most of the vinegar mix over the roast, reserving some to add to the shredded meat at the end.
  4. cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours, or high for 4 to 5 hours.
  5. remove the meat and onions to a cutting board. remove skin and set aside. using two forks (or your fingers, if you have asbestos hands), pull and shred the pork. chop the onions, and mix into the shredded meat. using a fork, remove some of the fat from under the skin, mince, and add to the shredded meat and onions as needed for moisture and flavor.
  6. serve on warm buns or crusty hard rolls, with the remaining vinegar mixture on the side.
