KuneKune Pulled Pork

Excellent pulled pork recipe, perfect for our smaller, “crock pot sized” boston butts and picnic shoulders!

Connor's 4-H Heritage Breeds Project

My Mom and I are making pulled pork for the first time. I am going to tell you the recipe and how it tasted. We decided to cook it in the crock pot instead of the oven.

Pulled Pork is known as one of the most popular dishes in the south. You can get it pretty much any where. Barbeque is so famous due to it starting in the south. It first started when Native Americans started barbequeing pigs that were introduced to them by the Spanish.

We researched some recipes online and added ingredients from two recipes, and added our own ideas to make our pulled pork.
