Nothing says summer like BBQ. Our apartment is unfortunately grill-less, so I have to find other ways to enjoy BBQ at home. Here's a great way to make some pulled pork inside without heating up the whole place by turning on your oven.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
5(ish) pound pork shoulder
1 12-oz bottle hard cider (Woodchuck is my favorite, I used their Amber variety for this)
1 large onion, peeled and sliced
2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's is mine) plus extra for serving
Place onions in the bottom of your slow cooker. Put pork shoulder on top of onions and pour in the cider.
Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or on high for about 5 hours (temperature should register right around 190 on a meat thermometer). Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with two forks, discarding bone and fat.
Skim fat off of the top of the cooking liquid (these handy little things make it so easy, and it'll catch all the onions in the top which you definitely don't want to lose) Pour BBQ sauce into crockpot, add 1 cup of the cooking liquid and the onions back into the pot, stir well.
Add pork into the sauce and cook for another hour or so. Serve warm on squishy rolls with extra BBQ sauce.
