Ingredients:  
6 lbs. boneless pork butt, shoulder or blade roast - cut into four inch chunks.

Cooking Sauce for slow cooker
2 (14 oz.) cans no salt added diced tomatoes - optional


Southern BBQ Sauce- Carolina style:
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar ( you can add up to 1 cup depending on how tangy you like your sauce)
1 cup Heinz or Hunts ketchup - no high fructose corn syrup - I use Hunts Original ketchup
4 Tbsp. packed brown sugar (1/4 cup)
1 Tbsp. Guldens spice mustard
2 Tbsp. molasses

Directions:
Pork:
Place cubed pork in a 5 qt. slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours. The pork will make it's own juices while it cooks. When the meat is done, remove from slow cooker and shred. Add 2 cans diced tomatoes and 2 cups of the BBQ sauce to the meat and mix well. Let it heat on high in the slow cooker for about 30 minutes. Serve immediately with extra sauce or place 1-2 lbs. of meat mixture into freezer bags or freezer aluminum containers and keep in refrigerator or freezer until ready for use. Serve the pork on large hamburger buns with coleslaw and more BBQ sauce.

Sauce:
In medium bowl, combine all sauce ingredients and whisk well to dissolve the sugar and molasses or you can place all ingredients in a mason jar with lid and shake to combine. Place in a squeeze bottle and dress the pulled pork sandwiches to taste.

Notes: This should yield about 5 lbs. of pulled pork. The pork can be frozen and then microwaved or heated in a pot on the stove. When heated the pork tastes great and can be used for sandwiches (on Brioche or sesame buns), or as a side dish, or with coleslaw. It is also good for tacos, with cheese.

Personal Notes:
Pop Pop usually buys 13 lbs. of pork shoulder so he can make two batches and freeze a lot for us! This is Pop Pop's #1 specialty dish! He makes it for us for birthdays, holidays and any special occasion. He has perfected the recipe and it is delicious! The sauce is the absolute best BBQ sauce ever - for a spicier sauce simply add black pepper and crushed red peppers to taste.
