Pulled pork is an American barbecue delicacy, more notably a Southern American cuisine based on shredded grilled Pulled pork shoulder. Often, it is slowly smoked over wood (typically outside); for indoor adaptations, a slow cooker is used. The meat is then carefully shred and combined with sauce. It can be consumed on its own or as a sandwich on toast.

3. Place the pork roast in the slow cooker after coating it with the mixture to season it.
4. Cook while covered 5 to 6 hours on high, or until the roast is readily torn with a fork.
5. Allow the pork to cool for a few minutes, so it’s easier to handle.
6. While the pork is cooking transfer the cooking liquids to a small saucepan. Make sure to pull off any excess fat that is on top of the sauce. *make sure to loosen any of the tasty bits stuck to the botto]m of the slow cooker.
7. Reseason the barbecue sauce as necessary and reduce the sauce over medium heat until it thickens.
8. Shred the roast’s pork into small pieces using two forks. The pork won’t shred as easily if you allow it to cool down too much.
9. Add the barbecue sauce to the Pulled Pork.
Precaution to follow:
