    Well, the coke and bbq sauce with 7 hours roasting was nice, but not as nice as my last effort.

    It was a bit sickly sweet, even with the addition of bbq sauce and some reggae reggae sauce to try to cut through the coke. Tried it in a bun with red cabbage, but it wasn't quite to my taste.

    Live and learn.

    Anyone got any suggestions for stuff to go with it? Someone mentioned salsa & guacamole, which sounds like it could work well.

    When I make a gammon cooked in coke, and reduce the coke after taking the gammon out, then a green salsa goes with it. It needs to be hot with green chili and heavy on the lime. So the pork is salty, the coke reduction is sweet, the chili is hot, and the lime is sour. Lovely.

    You know the main ingredient in BBQ sauce and Reggae Reggae (after water) is sugar, right?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Yeah, but I had hoped the spicyness of levi's sauce would cut through it more than it did. That was why I added it. Someone had suggested just coke or root beer and some bbq sauce. I didn't add that much of either to try to limit the sugar rush.

    As I said, I'll live & learn. I'm sure plenty of folk would've liked it far more than I did. It's only by trying stuff you work out what works for you.

    I keep it simple, Pork shoulder, Chilli flakes and Mustard seeds rubbed over it, Bottle of cloudy cider, Couple of splashes of cider vinegar, stick it all in a casserole dish with the lid on tight, cook it on low for ages, pull the meat apart on a big plate and pour the cooking liquid over the top.
    You need to taste the meat through the seasoning otherwise you might as well just do pulled tofu with a shitload of spices chucked on top.

    I'm gonna give this a try as well. Do you get crackling when it's done in a slow cooker?

    Doing some slow pork for a Christmas party me and the mrs are hosting on Saturday.

    5 simple steps ill be sticking to :

    1. Take off most of the fat (not ALL of it)
    2. Seasoning : Salt, Pepper, Onion Salt, Garlic, Paprika, Thyme
    3. Half a bottle of Stella Cidré in with it
    4. Cook on 'low' setting on slow cooker
    5. Minimum 6 hours


    Then the best bit - pull all the pork with two forks, pile it all into a griddle, pour some of the Cidré/Pork juices from the slow cooker on top then add a little bit of my home-made meat sauce :

    - Butter
    - Soy
    - Onion Salt
    - BBQ sauce
    - Paprika

    Mix together in a small bowl and heat through for 2 minutes. Mix it in with the pork, cook on the griddle for approx. 5 minutes.

    Job. Fucking. Done.

    I'm not sure if it would work in a slow cooker. I think it has to be roasted on a higher heat to get crackling doesn't it?

    So saying, I am certainly no expert on crackling production. The first time I tried pulled pork, I tried to get crackling on the tenderloin I had. I roasted it in the oven that time at high heat to produce crackling after the pouring boiling water on the skin, rubbing olive oil in and salting it.

    It 'sort of' worked, but my general aversion to adding salt to anything meant I had skimped with the salting to the extent that the crackling wasn't quite right. /o\

    You won't get crackling in the slow cooker. In the past i've cut the fat off first in one big bit and then put that in the oven with olive oil and salt to get the crackling. Worked pretty well!

    You wont regret it mate, its tried and tested. Took me a few attempts but if you do it the way i've got it written above, it will be perfect.

    A personal serving suggestion is to stick some in a crusty white baguette with some black olives and a thin layer of Brie on top.

    @PearOfAnguish

    I cooked the shoulder joint I had for 12 hours on very low, then took off the fat and skin layer in one piece which I put to one side, pulled the pork, added more seasonings and returned it to the oven.

    Then I oiled and salted the skin and cooked it in a very high oven for about 40 mins to crisp into crackling.

    I'm going to have a go at Ultra's recipe too over Chrimbo. I made it before with full fat Coca Cola and wasn't over impressed.
    I might sub the cidre for Strongbow though

    Success!

    Used Ultrasoundwaves post as a guide and some standard shoulder joint from the supermarket for a first go with inexpensive ingredients and it was absolutely beautiful.

    There's been a lot of pulled meat on Sunday Brunch on Channel 4. Rimmer's done pulled pork, vindaloo pulled lamb, and mexican pulled turkey so far. Tried all of them, all delicious.

    But of course, it's hard to make pulled meat anything other than delicious! :D

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!
