Crockpot BBQ Pork

Recipe by Jan Thomas of Chesterfield

8-10 pound pork butt or shoulder 

1-2 packets BBQ dry rub seasoning

Place pork butt into crockpot fatty side down. Sprinkle 1/2 -1 full packet ( I use one full packet) of the seasoning packet all over the pork butt and press it onto the meat with hands to cover well. Place lid on crockpot and cook on low 8-10 hours ( I sometimes do this overnight) or high for 4-6 hours till meat is falling off the bone tender.

Scoop meat and bones into a large bowl. Grab one more large bowl and a trash bag as well. Let meat cool at least 20 minutes. When meat is cool enough to handle with your fingers or two forks, begin separating the bones, gristle and  fat from the meat. Discard the bones and assorted non edibles into the trash bag and the meat into the second large bowl and shred.

Drain the pork broth from the crockpot and set aside, discard the trash bag and return the shredded pork to the crockpot. Set crockpot to warm setting and drizzle about 1/4 cup of broth onto shredded pork to "rehydrate" the pork. Serve Warm.
