Crockpot Smoky Pulled Pork Recipe - tender and juicy!

 

Remember that delicious smoky pulled pork you had at the last graduation open house? You know the one where they slow roasted an entire pig in a big smoker in the back yard? You can make a small batch in your slow cooker at home and it tastes just as good!

This tender and juicy smoky pulled and shredded pork melts in your mouth and uses just three ingredients. It is super easy to prepare, then let it slow cook in your crockpot. I started mine at 4 p.m. one day, flipped it over before bed time, and then shredded it into freezable batches the next morning.
