I love pulled pork that has been cooking in the crockpot all day. Don't you just love walking into your home and smelling dinner emanating from the oven.
And who doesn't love leftovers.
But sometimes I don't have all day or I forget to get things started first thing in the morning.
I don't use my crockpot often because I have a slow cook function on my oven. But either appliance will work for this recipe.
