Kahlua Pig in a Crock Pot - 211379

Submitted by:
Beware: Don't stick your fork in the crock pot when it's done, it's so good you'll just stand there at the counter eating it and it will never make it to the plate! :)

Preparation time: 2 min
Cooking time: 16 hrs

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: a ton


1 (5-6 pound) pork butt. Sometimes called Boston or pork shoulder but DON'T buy the "picnic style" pork shoulder, that is designed to be sliced, not pulled off the bone, shredded.
1-1/2 tbsp sea salt
1-1/2 tbsp liquid smoke


1 Pierce pork all over with a carving fork.
2 Rub salt then liquid smoke over meat.
3 Place roast in a slow cooker.
4 Cover, and cook on Low for 16 hours, turning once during cooking time.
5 Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten.

I know I've cooked this in far fewer hours than 16, I just play it by ear. The longer you cook it, the more it falls apart the way it is supposed to.

I usually serve over rice for the first meal and use the rest to make pulled pork sandwiches on onion buns with bbq sauce.
