I think I'm going to make this for my ladies' game group on Thursday. I've never made it before and really don't know much about it. What kind of bread/rolls should I serve it on? Should the bread be toasted?
I found a recipe online that sounded pretty good . . . except for the 2 ts. of Chipotle chile powder and 1 pickled jalapeno pepper (which I've never heard of or seen in the stores). And I don't know what the difference is between chipotle chile powder and plain old chile powder, but I don't think I'm going to rush right out and buy a bottle of it.
Of course, if any of you have a tried and true killer recipe that you'd care to share, I'm all ears!
Pioneer Women made one oh her show recently. I tried it and it is a keeper for sure- so easy and it freezes well too. her recipe calls for chipolte peppers in adobo(sp) sauce in a can. I did not use a whole can- only half and the heat was just right for us. I froze the other half to use next time I make it.
If you go to her blog you can search and the recipe is easy to find. I think pulled pork is in the name of it. My friends and I jokingly refer to it as the Pioneer woman's Bu tt
I just made this last week. I put country ribs in the crockpot for a few hours and then shredded them. Just stirred in sweet baby ray bbq sauce. You can also slow cook a pork butt roast. (but I find those to be so fatty)
I like them on small lil soft rolls in a group gathering.
#1 easier to eat because they can ooze out/be sloppy.
#2 ya don't eat so much
Hamburger type rolls -- whether the commerical kind or the ones that grocery store bakeries sell. Depends on how fancy you want them to be!

I buy the thick cut pork chops at Costco and use the crock pot to slow cook. The chops are less fatty. Usually I only add s&p and a bbq sauce. DH loves it. Definitely soft rolls.
I think "pickled" jalepenos are just the regular jarred ones - as opposed to the fresh.
Chipotle is a jalapeno that has been smoked. The dried chile powder can be strong, but it adds a different level of flavor. You can also buy it canned in sauce (available in grocery stores) and it is really good added in a bbq sauce. WARNING: One chile from the can will add a lot of heat. If you add it, be sure to chop it fine so no one gets a surprise in their meal. And wear gloves/don't touch your eyes when handling it.
One would think that in a group of ladies one of them would be sensitive to spicy food. So I would use no peppers, just a bbq sauce.
I have both chipotle powder and chipotles in adobo sauce on hand and use them both. However, the ones in the adobo sauce can be potent, so go easy the first time so you can determine how spicy/hot you want the dish to be. I use the chipotle powder mostly in chicken salad, but you can put it in other things too.
I'd cook a boston butt roast either in the oven or a crockpot. When its done, remove all the fat and then shred the meat. Then use whatever sauce you want.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
I went shopping on Monday when it was very hot so I decided against the Pulled Pork and have a spinach salad instead. Last night, I got so cold watching TV that I made myself a cup of hot chocolate. Today, it's cold as well. Didn't see the sun until after 10:30. But the weather report says things will start to heat up again Thursday, so maybe the salad was a good idea.
Becky, I checked the Pioneer Woman's website and found her recipe using Dr. Pepper. Is that the one you use? I'll probably make the Pulled Pork when it's my turn again in five months.
Lori, do you have a Walmart near you? They have a hard roll (it's not really hard) but so much better than hamburger buns, also a dollar roll much smaller but really good for sandwiches. I think it costs 12 for 2.99. Sue
Sue, yes I do. They don't always carry the same brands that they sell in other states, but I'll check it out. Thanks!
Thought I should warn ya'al about "pickled" jalepenos...IF you find them...they are hotter than the dickens!
A gal I know got some a couple of years ago & she is used to eating pretty spicy foods...burnt her mouth and all the rest of the way down. So be VERY careful if you use them. She bought one of those commercial size jars of them...close to a gallon.
