Easy Peasy Crockpot Pulled Pork

Today I'm hosting the Verizon Fios House party.  I'm making Crock Pot Pulled Pork sandwiches.  I pull this dish out for all my big parties as its so easy to make and cheap too.  No messing around with the grill, sweating and it feeds a lot of people.

Purchase a 5lb Pork Butt, I got mine for $1.99/lb.  I think I've gotten them for $1.69 before.  But when they go on sale buy, stock up and stick in freezer.

My hubby found this pork rub online (Wayne's rub)
2 tbsp Salt
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp White Sugar
2 tsp Paprika
2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Cayenne (only add if you like it hot)

Mix the rub and then rub on the outside of the pork

Place in crock pot, add 1 20floz of Root Beer to bottom of crock pot

Set Crock pot on slow for 8 hours or high for 6 hours, time permitting. 

Keep a close watch towards end of the cooking time - when the meat falls off the bone, take it out of the crock pot.  Remove the juice and keep it aside in a separate container.  Use a fork to pull the pork apart, place pork back in crockpot and then add some of the crock pot juice until moist.  Set crock pot on keep warm.  Now its ready to serve.

I put out burger buns and bbq sauce so people can add however much sauce they want.  I also make my own coleslaw Sandra lee Style - I buy a bag of premade Coleslaw and then mix it with Marie's or Marzetti coleslaw dressing.  I make it right before serving as the coleslaw is crunchy (I'm not a big fan of store brought coleslaw that ends up being mushy and super sweet).

YUM-O as Rachel Ray likes to say

I usually put the sauce right in at the end, but this is a great idea to have it as a side!
