Hi, I'm sooo confused.  I want to make pulled pork and have found recipes using pork butt, shoulder, loin and picnic roasts.  I made it before using a pork butt and there was a lot of fat.  Any thoughts?  Thanks!

I think your request belongs in The Buzz. If you post it again as a Recipe Request, others can help you.

One of the secrets to really good pulled pork is that it has a lot of fat in it. If you have little or no fat,you have dry pork.The best pork for general pot roast of pork using a liquid is shoulder or butt.For low fat and never fail tender, get pork tenderloin.Also, if you want pork that is not too dry, make sure that it has some red color. For an inexpensive roast, try the Hormel "Always Tender" prepackaged.

You should use pork butt, but you should sear it first before you put it in the crock-pot, preferably in a cast iron skillet to get the best sear. That will also give you some crispy bits, which some people love. Good luck!
