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.

There ya go-this is what you should be doing instead of playing Bejeweled Blitz! Boston Butt is on sale at Food Lion this week and I was wondering how to cook it! Thanks
