Yes, I did. Here’s my story …

I forgot to let my pork butt thaw before it was time to put it in the crockpot. (That sounds much worse than I intend it to sound.) I thought I could throw it in the microwave and defrost it and then realized that because there was a great sale, we bought a HUGE pork butt … as in 8+ pounds! There was no way it was going to be done in time for supper since I also forgot to start the crockpot until noon.

Long story short – I had a serious case of “taxes-up-to-my-eyeballs brain” and we ended up eating Brupper (breakfast for supper) instead of the pulled pork because it wasn’t even close to being done. I let the pork continue to cook in the crockpot until just before I went to bed, at which time I put the fork in and this happened …



Yep, all the meat fell off the bone. Shredding that 8.8 pound pork butt took all of 1 minute. I basically stirred the pot and it fell apart. And the smell … Oh, my goodness!


This morning I needed to take a picture of the finished product for you and that meant making a sandwich, which is how I ended up eating a pulled pork sandwich for breakfast. #sorrynotsorry

I put the Pork Butt in the crockpot. Mine was huge, but you can do similar ingredients and just siphon off excess liquid before you serve your sandwiches.

Mix together:

1 cup honey

2 tablespoons smoked paprika

1 1/2 tablespoons salt

1 1/2 tablespoons pepper

1/2 tablespoon thyme

1 large onion sliced

1 Diet Coke

If you get yourself a huge slab of meat, plan on letting it cook for 9-10 hours. (half time on high, second half on low). A completely thawed, smaller piece of meat could cook all day on low.
