North Carolina Pulled Pork

6 Sep

North Carolina Pulled Pork comes out super tender and juicy, with a tartness that only a vinegar based sauce will provide.  Using a crock pot makes this dish a snap.

Recently, my husband has been asking me to make some pulled pork.  The first thing that popped into my head, was that I get to use my slow cooker again!  I love cooking with the slow cooker for so many reasons, but mainly because it’s easy and everything comes out tasting amazing.  This is a recipe for North Carolina Pulled Pork, which has a vinegar based sauce.  If you are not a fan of this type of sauce, feel free to use your own favorite.


Now, I’m not calling this North Carolina barbecue because any real barbecue aficionado will point out that it is not barbecue if there is not fire or smoke.  And since I don’t have a barrel smoker in my yard, the crock pot will just have to do.

Ever since we have moved to South Carolina, my knowledge of barbecue sauce has grown exponentially.  I have learned that not only are sauces broken down by state, but also, regions within each state.  Personally, I haven’t met a type of barbecue sauce that I don’t like.  My husband on the other hand, is a little more picky.  He loves the tart, sour deliciousness that is North Carolina sauce, specifically, Eastern North Carolina sauce.  North Carolina barbecue sauce is a vinegar based sauce, and our family just thinks it is the absolute best.
