So, consider for a moment the chart that I pulled down from one of the money-grubber sites. The one above is the price of hogs.

The price is low and it is time to line your freezer with piggies. The Cash and Carry by my place is selling 15 or so pound chubs of boneless pork sirloin for $0.93/Lb.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

  • 6-8 lb. pork shoulder/pork butt
  • 2 large onions, Chopped Fine
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup Dark beer
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 5 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 tbsp mustard
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp ground black pepper

  1. Place onion on the bottom of your slow cooker. Place pork shoulder, trimmed of any obvious excess fat, into slow cooker on top of onions. pour on the dark beer
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients to form the barbecue sauce. Feel free to adjust salt and pepper to taste. Pour half of the sauce over the pork and cover. Set remaining sauce aside.
  3. Cook over low heat for about 10 hours
  4. Remove pork to a large bowl and shred with two forks. Transfer meat back into slow cooker and cook for a bit, until meat has soaked up the sauce.
  5. Serve on bread, topped with extra barbecue sauce.
