Slow Cooker Carolina Style Pulled Pork – No Smoker Needed!

Slow Cooker Carolina Style Pulled Pork

Growing up in Virginia, Carolina style pulled pork was what we had all the time, and I LOVED it! I have lived in several different places as an adult, but even after being in Texas and St. Louis, no one can convince me that Carolina style isn’t the best type of pulled pork. I have wanted a smoker for some time now, but we haven’t gotten one just yet. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make some delicious pulled pork with my slow cooker, and I sure was happy with the results! I hope you enjoy this Slow Cooker Carolina Style Pulled Pork as much as we did!
