Pork shoulder is a great cut of pork for pulled pork. Using the crock pot is a great way to cook the pork at a lower temperature for a longer amount of time, and allows the meat to become tender enough to pull it apart for BBQ.

We attended the Indiana State Fair last weekend.  We watched our friends kids show pigs, ate lots of fair food, ate at the pork tent.  My daughter had a delicious baked potato with pork, cheese, sour cream and jalapenos on top, called loaded Potatchoes.  We drank lots of iced tea (it was a hot day) and of course, we had beignets for breakfast as soon as we got there!
