Throwback Thursday: Easy Pulled Pork Barbecue and Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce.

I chose this Easy Pulled Pork Barbecue recipe as this week's Throwback Thursday post because I once again found Boston Butt pork roasts on sale this week so I thought it would be a perfect recipe to revisit.  This recipe was originally posted on January 20, 2011 and can be found here.  When I was looking over it I realized that I used bottled barbecue sauce for this recipe and also wanted to include my Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce recipe that I posted here on October 18, 2009 that would be perfect with this recipe.  I use this barbecue sauce on everything!

The night before we cooked the pork roast my husband deboned it for me, and trimmed the fat off.  When we deboned it, it really created two seperate roasts.  After deboning it we rubbed it down with my homemade rub.The rub is made by mixing together:

1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt

After rubbing down the meat we placed it in a large bowl, covered it in saran wrap and let it sit overnight in the fridge.

The next morning I put the pork roast in my broaster oven (this can be done in your regular oven as well) at 350 degrees.  I cooked the roast for three hours, and at that point the meat was just falling apart. 

After removing the meat from the broaster I pulled it apart into small pieces.

Next I put the pulled meat into the crockpot and mixed in barbecue sauce.  Normally I would make my own barbecue sauce, but this time I used store bough since I have about twelve bottles of barbecue sauce sitting around that I bought last summer for just 29 cents each.  I ended up using two bottles of sauce.

Since I wasn't sure how long it would take the meat to cook, I had started cooking it early in the day, and it cooked a lot quicker than I had expected it to.  Since we still had quite a bit of time to go before dinner, I kept the meat in the crockpot on low for about four more hours.
