Another recipe!
I loooooove pulled-pork. LOVE IT! I never had it much as a kid but I have tried it once or twice the last few times at functions and whatnot and I love how moist, barbecue-y and delicious this is! With potatoes or with a bun - it doesn't matter; pulled-pork is heavenly! I honestly would rather have it then chocolate. 
Then again I would take a lot of things over chocolate since I am not a huge sweets fan, but regardless.
And pulled-pork is a southern fare staple! So here it is ladies and gents! A delicious pulled-pork recipe!

Bon Appetit!

Southern Pulled-Pork Sandwiches
Pork shoulder, a well-marbled cut available at most supermarkets, turns fork-tender after long, slow cooking. Ours is especially succulent with a spice rub and vinegar. 

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 40 minutes
Yield: Serves 8

1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder {Boston butt}, cut into 4 equal pieces
1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 soft sandwich rolls, split
Store-brought barbecue sauce, for serving {optional}

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in lower and upper positions. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cayenne, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.

Place pork in a 5-quart Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed pot; rub with spice mixture.

In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, garlic, and 1/2 cup water; pour over pork. Cover pot, and place in oven on lower rack. Bake until pork is very tender and separates easily when pulled with a fork, 2 to 2-1/2 hours. 

Transfer pork to a work surface, reserving pan juices. With two forks, shred meat. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with pan juices to moisten {you may not need all the juices}. Pile pork on rolls, and top with barbecue sauce, if desired.

There isn't a tun that you have to do with this recipe - not much chopping or prepping and I am sure your kitchen and your house will probably entice your neighbors to come over to your place and question you about that amazing scent coming from your place! :)
