Grills are good and all, but sometimes there’s a shortcut that can create equally drool-worthy results. No, there’s not gunna be a smoke ring and you aren’t going to be able to brag to your buddies about how you maintained the perfect temp to produce fall off the bone action, but you are going to be able to roll up your sleeves and get your jam on with some damn fine pork because you let the slow cooker do all the work and didn’t bat an eyelash. Yeah, Martha Stewart would be proud of your rebellious self-breaking the oath that is grilling and working a little smarter not harder for once. I’m not saying a low slow smoke isn’t amazing. I’m just saying no one chowing down needs to be pointing fingers at how you got results this good. Grab them some buns and let them toss all they want on.
This little secret can stay ‘tween us girls.
