Chef Dad's Crock Pot Pulled Pork
For more recipes from Chef Dad go to:
For more information on Dad's Catering go to:

5-6 lb. Pork Shoulder
1 Tbsp. Worchester Sauce
1 Tbsp. Liquid Smoke
1 Yellow Onion (diced large)
6 Garlic Cloves (rough chopped)
6 Tbsp. Rub Seasoning (your favorite or see recipe below)
2 Bottles BBQ Sauce (your favorite)

1) Remove your pork from the supermarket package and dry off with paper towels.
2) Combine your Worchester sauce with the liquid smoke in a small bowl and mix well.  Pour that sauce over the meat and rub in well on all sides. Now sprinkle about 6-8 tablespoons of your rub all over the meat and rub it in well.
3) Take your diced onion & garlic and put it in the bottom of your crock pot.  Pour about ¼ cup of your first bottle of BBQ sauce over the onion and garlic.  Place your pork on top of that. Now pour the rest of that first bottle over the meat.  Just that one bottle, keep the other for later.  Put the lid on the crock pot.  Set the temperature to low.  Leave it alone without opening the lid for at least 10 hours and up to 12. 
4) Carefully remove the meat from the crock pot by picking up the food container away from the heating unit then pour the whole thing into a strainer.  Take the meat out and put on your work surface and remove all the onion & garlic.  Separate the fat & bone from the meat.  Use the remaining bottle of sauce to add more flavor to the meat by pouring ½ of the bottle over the meat then toss them together.  Serve on your favorite bun and leave the remaining sauce available for people who want more. 

This recipe makes at least 16 sandwiches.
