    I'm having supper club at my house this week for the annual fantasy football draft order lottery/my birthday. It is predicted to rain, so I don't want to rely on the grill. Looking for something I can do in the slow cooker like pulled pork or chicken. I usually just chuck a pork shoulder in with sweet baby rays and call it a day, but just seeing if anyone has other recommendations.

    I will still probably try and grill up some corn and do fries or something as well.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    I usually season the shoulder to taste and add enough liquid to cook. When done, remove from crock and pull. Drain all the liquid out (I like to save it and use to make egg noodles the next day), and pull the pork. Put pulled pork back in the crock and add BBQ sauce or just pull the pork and add sauce directly to your sammich

    I agree to the general steps, but add a twist... season the pork shoulder with a good rub at least 24 hours in advance, and let it sit with the rub in the fridge. Toss a bay leaf or two into the crock pot when cooking the pork. Also, @POWERPRO, since you want to avoid the grill, put a bit of liquid smoke into the slow cooker to help get some of that smoky goodness.

    Last thing is, I love me some Sweet Baby Ray's, but sometimes that sauce is just too sweet, so I cut it with some apple cider vinegar, and add a bit of crushed chili flake... if I overshoot on the tanginess because of too much vinegar, work it back with some honey.


    ETA: For rubs, I rotate between Bad Byron's Butt Rub, Killer Hogs, and Ford's Bone Suckin' Sauce All-Purpose Rub.
