Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork
Over the years I have been lucky to live in different parts of the country with some seriously good barbecue.
The midwest, Alabama, the Carolinas… a range of sauces from thick, sweet and sticky all the way to thin vinegar and mustard-based concoctions.
I can’t wait to try a few smokey delicacies when we got to Georgia for the kiddo’s graduation.
While you can barbecue beef or chicken, my tastebuds tend to want classic barbecue pork.
Ribs, chops, marbled pork shoulders and butts, lean loins. You name it and we love it!
Which means this easy-to-make Slow Cooker Carolina Pulled Pork really gets to me. It makes my heart as happy as my taste buds.

A note on the sauce. I listed tomato sauce or ketchup as your base.
Use whichever you have on had but realize the ketchup with give you a slightly sweeter sauce.
