    Anybody ever thrown a butt in the crockpot? I am really wanting some shredded pig BBQ but we don't have a grill or smoker. I was contemplating throwing a butt in the crock as it's lazy. Anybody got any pointers?

    I was also contemplating making my own sauce. Suggestions? In the past I've used Jack Daniels, balsamic, mustard, ketchup, orange juice, pineapple juice, brown sugar, raw sugar, honey, molasses, coffee, Coke, garlic, crushed red pepper, cumin...not all at once, of course. I love the flavor from the JD so I want to include it for sure but with the rest of the ingredients I'm flexible.

    I did chicken with whole wheat noodles, tons of mushrooms, lots of veggies and a sauce of peanut butter, sirancha, soy sauce, sesame seed oil and anything else that jumped out at me last night. :drool:

    I think we're doing Abuelos tonight. :supergrin:

    We just did two racks of baby back ribs in the crock pot. For a single rack...

    2 1/2lbs baby pork ribs
    2 1/2 cups of KC Masterpiece
    8oz jar of Cherry Preserves (run thru the food processor)
    1tbs Dijon Mustard
    Pepper

    Mix all ingredients very well, pour over ribs, and cook on low 6-8hrs, or fall off the bone 10 hrs.

    My wife did this over the weekend. We just salt, pepper, galic, and cook about 10 hours on low. The bone pulls right out, and you can shred it up for eating.

    Combine Heinz 57 Chili sauce, a can of tomato sauce, a dash of worcesteshire sauce, some chopped onion, brown sugar, vinegar. Add a can of water from the tomato sauce can. Amounts of brown sugar and vinegar are pretty much up to how sweet and sour you like it, so do it your way. Don't have a heavy hand with either sugar or vinegar as the flavors concentrate. Simmer the sauce until reduced a bit and there ya go. ;)

    No, just regular Cherry Jam, or Preserves, like you'd spread on a PB&J Sammich. It's hard to find Cherry Jam around here, so we have to make due with Cherry Preserves instead. We just run it thru a food processor to chop up any chunks.

    I went to a party once where the lady of the house did basically what you are talking about. The results weren't quite smoked good, but were still amazing. If I recall, she complained that the cooking method went from roasting to braising about mid way through as all the fat/connective tissue rendered out.
