My only picture from 4th of July

Perfect Pulled Porked - Smoked, Seasoned, and Savory!

The pulled pork. Had to get a picture of the pulled pork. ;)

No fireworks. No dogs swimming in the pool. No beach pics.

But this isn’t just any pulled pork… This this is seasoned, savory, and *smoked* pork shoulder. I’ve been dying to try my pulled pork recipe in a smoker- that’s how pork shoulder is really supposed to be enjoyed right?? Especially here in the south! That’s what BBQ is all about! ;) And since Kevin’s mom is a pro on the smoker…….. and we were down there visiting for the 4th….. It was the perfect time to try it! :)

Isn’t it pretty? :D You can see why I had to get a pic, right! ;) And let me tell you, it was right tasty too. Cooking it in the smoker- it was a completely and totally different taste than doing it in the oven or crock pot. Still really, really good! But a totally different taste. :) I’m hooked! I gotta try this again.
