Boston Butt

Yep, that's actually the name of the BBQ pork recipe my friend Kendra gave me. It's the type of pork roast you're supposed to use. I've made it twice now and it's delicious. The picture is before you shred (actually it falls apart) the meat, but it's all I've got right now! Without further ado:

Boston Butt
3-4 lbs Boston Butt
1/2 can Coke at room temp
black pepper
chili powder
garlic powder
brown sugar
worcestershire sauce
liquid smoke

Sauce ingredients:
(double if needed)
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
juice of one lemon

To cook:
Trim excess fat from butt. Season bottom moderately with all ingredients except the Coke. Put in crock pot and pour Coke over. Season top of butt with all ingredients. Cook on LOW for 12 hours.

When done, it will be very hot! Transfer meat over to a dish to cool. Once cool, remove all fat and connective tissue. Put meat back into clean crock pot and add BBQ sauce (instructions to follow) and cook on LOW for 4 hours. Stir occassionally. Enjoy.

That's how I've been feeling lately. The past three weeks have been filled with sickness at our house. It started with the kids and worked it's way to my husband and I. Everyone else kicked that nasty virus, but unfortunately, mine turned into bronchitis. Also, my camera was broken for a few weeks, and since I have been told that the pics add so much to the recipes, I had been delaying posting a couple of great recipes. So...once again, I'm apologizing for my absence. I do have some updates--I did the freezer meal swap and loved it. I'm hoping to have a whole post about it this week. Also, I've gotten some new recipes that I plan to try and then share soon. Tomorrow, I'm making this bbq shredded pork recipe that I've made once before and loved--pics and the recipe by the end of the week! :)
