There is no love more sincere, than the love of Pork..

There is no love more sincere, then the love of Pork. To me at least. Deliciously tender, melt in your mouth pork.. smothered in sweet and spicy barbecue sauce… with a cold, crunchy slaw.. on a toasted bun. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Except to eat it with a cold beer.

Low and slow baby low and slow. This recipe takes A LONG TIME to make… but it is so incredibly worth it. This is the kind of thing I want to eat after a long day. Actually it’s the kind of thing I want to eat everyday, for every meal. If you love pulled pork you HAVE to try this recipe. Don’t be intimidated to make it yourself, it’s really as simple as placing it in the oven and walking away for six hours.
