Easy Pulled Pork

I am so excited for fall. So very excited. Since fall is my favorite season I typically am excited, but this year I am just itching for it. It must be the high humidity we dealt with so much of the summer that is making my need for cool crisp days more intense. Or maybe it's that I want the cool crisp days, so I get to make a big pot of soup, or a nice hearty meal. Mmmmm...  Bring it on!

This summer I did really try to minimize my cooking and time in the kitchen. Just ask my cookie crew, I am getting nothing but complaints!  I'll have to make them dozens of cookies soon. I promise. 

This recipe for Easy Pulled Pork is great for any season though, it just helped minimize my kitchen time since this recipe was enough to feed us multiple meals.  And I just love when I find a new recipe that rocks my kitchen cooking world! And that is what this recipe did. This recipe is still a slow cooked recipe, but in the oven. I haven't thrown a pork roast in the slow cooker since finding this recipe. 

This is so easy and you can customize it to make it your own. I typically can't find Boston Butt's much over 5 pounds, so my cooking time is usually on the lower side. Add as much seasoning as you like, and depending on your roast size. I give it a nice liberal even coating. It's sooo tender when it's done, shredding it is effortless. And the crust... I won't tell you how much I eat while I am shredding it. ;)

Make sure you use your favorite BBQ sauce. I found this roast recipe from my blogging friend Lynn, when I ordered some of her sauce. If you want some amazing BBQ Sauce from South Carolina, you can order some right from Lynn's website: Southern With A Twist.

Easy Pulled Pork 

Boston Butt Roast
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Barbecue Sauce

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place roast in roasting pan. Pour apple cider vinegar over top of roast. Season with kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Bake, uncovered, for 6-8 hours. Remove from oven and let rest 30 minutes. Remove bone, it should slide right out. Remove fat, and shred. Mix with favorite barbecue sauce.

Serve with additional sauce, if desired.
