Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork or Chicken

Slow cooker BBQ pulled pork or chicken sandwich

Nothing says summer like a sloppy barbecue and  coleslaw sandwich.  I liked my fingers even after this one.  The coleslaw was a new recipe which was wonderful and this recipe I have come up with for pulled pork or chicken is a family favorite.

This is a recipe I had adapted over the last few years, combining odds and ends of recipes.  I use this recipe for chicken usually but had some pork butt all trimmed ready, so away I went.

Cook on low about 6 hours.

Drain all but 1/2 cup of fluid, and remove meat to a cutting board or bowl.  Shred meat with hands or forks, and place back in slow cooker with liquids.

Toss with as much barbecue sauce is desired, about 1/2 bottle.  Continue to heat another 30 minutes on low.

Serve anyway you prefer!
