    Since I've been lazy and unproductive lately, Rick set me up with a couple back straps off this 'ol gal.

    So I decided to try my hand at some pulled pork in the crock pot....

    Let it go for another 10 hours while I was at work today just to really let the juices marinate

    At bit more pulling apart and soaking up the juices

    Quick, it was not..... Easy and tasty it was.....

    It would have been just fine after the first 10 hours in the crock pot, I'm sure. That's about how long I usually do my pork shoulders when I cook them in the pot. However yesterday morning I was racing out the door, so restarting the slow heat was easier/faster than packing it up for the fridge.

    That looks great and a little different than the traditional BBQ style. I'll have to give that a try. Soon as I can kill something.

    I gotta say after looking at the ingredients I think your avatar of TP is appropriate. I almost have to drop a deuce just looking at the pile
