I am a sucker for BBQ. It's Reagan's favorite condiment. Riley is not such a big fan. Stu enjoys good BBQ too.
I found this recipe in this magazine, although I did not follow it exactly:
This recipe could not be easier. I changed it a bit from the one in the Slow Cooker magazine. Below, you will see what I did. It turned out great.
You'll need a crockpot, one bottle of spicy BBQ sauce (your choice), one can Dr Pepper (not diet) and a 3-4 pound boneless pork shoulder. Oh, and buns.
Plop the pork into your crockpot (I was using a 7-quart crockpot).
In a bowl, mix the the Dr. Pepper and BBQ sauce together. I LOVE Sticky Fingers sauces. They sell several different flavors. For this recipe, I pulled the Sweet Southern Heat bottle out of the pantry.
Pour the BBQ soda mixture onto the pork. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
I pulled the pork out at around 9:30 hours... On a cutting board, I shredded all the of the meat. Then I put it back into the crockpot and stirred it a little. I let it cook for another 30 minutes in the sauce on low.
The house smelled amazing. The pork was delicious. Stu, Reagan and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Buddy tried it. His verdict was that it was "pretty good, but a bit spicy."
Not A Chef
I like to cook, but I am no chef. I don't have the vision to create masterpieces from scratch. I am excellent at following recipes and tweaking them to fit my pantry or family. And I have a great collection of recipes to share.
