6 to 8 lb           Boston Butt, bone in

This is also known as Pork Shoulder

(from Kroeger and Sons Meats, of course)

2 tbsp              Vinegar, your choice

                        Salt and Pepper

2 to 3 tbsp       Fresh thyme (if using dried thyme, 2 - 3 tsp will be plenty)

Place the meat, fat side up, in a crock pot that is just big enough to fit.

Sprinkle the vinegar on top of the meat.

Season with a small amount of salt and lots of freshly ground pepper and the thyme.  If you prefer, you can substitute sage, or any other herb, or leave it out.

Set crock pot / slow cooker to low and cook for 9 to 12 hours.  This is best done overnight, one or two nights before you will be serving it.

When done, meat will be falling off the bone and very easy to "pull" apart.  Remove the bone and any excess fat and shred the meat.

Now, you have a delicious meat, ready to eat, or ready to mix with the bottled BBQ sauce of your choice.  To make it your own, mix the broth from the crock pot with your sauce of choice and boil gently until it reduces by about a cup.  This will intensify the flavor of the sauce and put the meat flavor back.  Mix the sauce with the pulled pork and serve.

This will also freeze very well, so don't be afraid of leftovers!
