Pulled Pork my way

Pulled Pork is something that I majored in at TKsnax, I used to serve it up with about 10 different spice mixes but the basic Pulled Pork went like this.

I used a slow cooker for the Pork I was getting through over 60 kilos of Pork a week and had 4 slow cookers on every night. the last job of the day after clean down was to put on the pork. Earlier in the day, the pork was rubbed up with my Pork spice rub and left to marinate. The skin was removed first to make Chicharon (pork scratchings). Then the pork was popped into the slow cookers 2 cups of water poured in then left on low overnight.
