Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

If I could bottle up the aroma that was in my house last week I would almost wear it as perfume. Well not really but the smell of this dish is that good. I got this recipe back in May from Foodie Pen Pal Cara. This was actually the first time I had ever cooked a full pork shoulder. The original recipe came from The Pioneer Woman.I decided to add more of a spice rub to the dish to give it more of a Texan flair, and reduce the chipotle peppers & Dr. Pepper (since I am not the biggest fan of the soda, yes I know this is a main component).  I was pretty impressed with myself and how it turned out. And what’s even better is all I had to do was throw all the ingredients together and pop it in the oven for a few hours while I worked around the house. John was also pleased with the meal, I mean what husband wouldn’t be with a huge plate of meat? Next time we thought of adding a little bit of bourbon to keep things interesting. Enjoy!

[…] I had made Beer Battered Fish Tacos with Avocado Corn Salsa a few months back so this time decided to go with pork. Don’t forget sometimes if you go to the grocery store and you don’t see the pork butt or pork shoulder laying out ask your butcher if he has any in the back. Worst case scenario get a couple pounds of boneless country style ribs. I have had to use these when in a bind and I was making my Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork. […]
