Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork

  • 3-4 pounds boneless pork (shoulder or butt – no bones)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • one-half teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

combine all the spices and rub onto the pork

  • 1 medium green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 jar (18 ounces) prepared barbecue sauce (I used Famous Dave’s brand)
  • one-half cup packed brown sugar

Combine in slow cooker for 8-10 hours on low.  If it doesn’t all fall apart naturally, pull it apart with a fork before you serve.

For a group of 300 or so, begin with 30 pounds of pork and do eight times on the other ingredients.  That’s what I did for this wedding reception.  I’ll tell you later if we had too much or too little – and what the comments were.
