Hello, my name is Julie, I have a confession, I am a pulled pork addict.

It has been two days since my last binge.

I think about pork all the time, it’s not just pulled pork I crave. I have fantasies about suckling pig or charcoal BBQ pork in a tasty rub.

I love crackle, slow cooked pork belly, BBQ pork ribs, Char Sui Pork , pork buns, pork dumplings.

ANY PORK!

I find myself making excuses to walk past the butcher, just to look at the meat. I’m weak!

The cooler weather is all the excuse I need.  My cravings for the sweet, tender, fatty meat intensify. Pork is my ultimate comfort food.

So today I am sharing my addiction for this delicious meat with readers. Be warned once you try this dish you will never be the same again.  My slow cooker pulled pork recipe has all the rich, barbecue flavours and produces meat that just melts in your mouth.

Another benefit of cooking the dish in a slow cooker is the amazing aroma. Slow cookers are perfect for adding a homely aroma and warm atmosphere to the winter home. You can get the same result in an oven by baking the meat at 125 degrees in a baking tray covered in alfoil.

We have been using the pulled pork in everything from soft taco’s to burgers. My butcher now knows me by name! Oh, I have a little tip, when you are buying your meat in Australia you will find we don’t have the Boston Butt cut.

My friendly butcher debones the shoulder to produce the equivalent cut of meat. He even takes the pigs rind off so I can make crackle! YUM, gotta love that man!
