pork smoke

Pulled Pork Tacos

Scotty is still celebrating #NationalPorkMonth, and there was smoke involved…

When it comes to pulled pork, I’ve done it two ways.  Either smoking it on the grill, or cooking it in the trusty Crock-Pot and either way it’s delicious.  This time I smoked the pork for a couple of hours and THEN put it in the Crock-Pot for convenience.  It turned out great!

I rubbed the pork the night before and left it in the fridge.  The next day I smoked it for about two hours, and then put it in the cooker.  I always slice an onion and put it in the bottom of the cooker, put the meat in, and put another couple of slices of onion on top.

For some liquid, I’ll usually pour some Coke over the meat.  Then I set it on LOW and let it go for another four hours.

Then I shredded it, and put it back in the cooker with some chipotle peppers with adobo sauce for another hour or so.  That stuff is fantastic!  It adds a little heat and a little more smokey (smoky?) flavor too.

After that you can do what you want with it.  I usually put a good portion of it in freezer bags and into the freezer to use later, by itself, or in chili maybe!?

In fact I’ll probably be sharing that recipe next! – scotty
