Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend - we certainly did! Since Memorial Day is traditionally a grilling/BBQ holiday, we decided to try our hand at some pulled pork. I would have liked to have smoked our butt, but our grill is just a $50 grill from Home Depot (absolutely not fancy, but it works). I am sure we could rig it to make it into a smoker somehow, but we just decided to give Williams-Sonoma's Pulled Pork Starter a try. It turned out great!
We seared the pork in our dutch oven and then used the slow cooker setting on the oven. We let it slow cook for about 7-8 hours. (You can also use your crock-pot) It was super easy!
The sauce was sweet and smoky. It had a little kick from some red pepper flakes in the starter. We topped our sandwiches with some extra Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and pickles.
This was our first pork butt, but I'm sure it won't be our last. I've already found a couple of other recipes I want to try.
