I know it's a clichéd trendy food, but I fancy it. Plus I fancy trying my slow cooker.
Soooo
What would I serve with it! Plus does anyone have any full proof Slow cooker recipes? And what joint (from tesco) would I buy?!?!
Thank you grin

Following as interested to see how to make it from scratch

Alternatively, if you can't be bothered with the faff, you can buy it ready to cook in the oven at Tesco for about £4!

Use a pork shoulder (or 2, it's so irresistable it gets wolfed down).
I folow my own haphazard recipe for bbq sauce involving whatever is in the cupboard, but a more scientific approach is this recipe www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1526/barbecue-sauce
It honestly couldn't be easier, and the previous made stuff is not a patch on fresh, give it a go!

I just do it slowly in the oven, at a low temperature. Put a splash of water under the joint to keep it moist, cover in foil and cook for a long time. Before the fat starts to crisp cut it off, then cut into strips with scissors. After the pork is done, turn the oven up hot and cook the crackling. Delicious!
I 'm doing it on Saturday instead of a buffet for a family party.

Oh thank you ladies.

Am thinking sweet potato fries. And coleslaw to go with. Nom nom

I season the pork shoulder
Then rub smoked salt, pepper, paprika and mustard powder over the meat
Then I slow cook in the oven for 5 hours with a cup of water under joint. (So for slow cooker half a cup of water.)
After it's cooked separate the meat from the cooking liquid. Skim fat off liquid and keep about 150mls.
Add BBQ (shop bought or homemade) sauce to this liquid and then stir through the shredded pork. Can't give you an exact amount for the BBQ sauce as can't remember. Probably about 3 tablespoons

I have bought my shoulder of pork yum!
So with the fat, would I cook it in the slow cooker with the fat on and then remove it near the end to make crackling??
