I am invited, like many of you, to a 4th of July cookout at a friend’s house where we will celebrate by listening to music, eating wonderful food and enjoying each other’s company. We will celebrate freedom, but my secret is that I am also celebrating freedom from being attached to my stove or oven the night before. Instead, I’m bringing slow cooker pulled pork. As one of our most popular slow cooker recipes, this North Carolina Barbecue is sure to be a hit.
Along with the barbecue, I’m bringing the most delicious coleslaw to go with it. I’ll let my slow cooker do the work while others toil away at cupcakes and complicated casseroles the night before. Because it’s a potluck, I’m bringing the barbecue in my slow cooker because it has these great clips that make it virtually spill-proof, and I’ll happily accept everyone’s compliments on my dish. Happy Independence Day, happy freedom-from-too-much-work day and I hope you like the barbecue.
