Although summer is in full swing here in Charlotte, our Crockpot has come back out again.

Because Tom and I have been obsessed with pulled meat – BBQ pulled pork, Masala Pulled Chicken, you name it.

Also, did I mention we live in the South? BBQ is a must.

Our house is actually right by the best BBQ restaurant in Charlotte. We would walk out of our door every day and smell that BBQ pulled pork.

But taking out its BBQ pulled pork every day is probably not the best idea.

What Meat to Use for BBQ Pulled Pork

I like to do a mix of pork loin, pork shoulder or pork butt. Honestly, whatever cut is available at the grocery store.

Why?

First, let me briefly explain the difference among all these different cuts the best I can. I am not a butcher, but here is how I figure out my preferred cuts that will give this BBQ pulled pork the best flavor.

Shoulder: Cuts from the upper portion of the shoulders have lots o marbles with fat and contain a lot of connective tissues. So they are my favorite to use in a slow cooker.

Loin: The area between the shoulder and back legs. This cut is the leanest, also the most tender part of all.

Butt (Pork roast): This is similar to shoulder but even more well marbled. However, it is usually a little pricier in grocery stores.

I usually use one pound of pork shoulder or pork butt to get the fatty and juicy factor for the BBQ pulled pork. Additionally, I use one more pound of pork loin, which balance the fatty pork shoulder. Pork loin is also more tender, so it gives the pulled pork a bit chewy texture.

Therefore, the key here is mix fat and lean.
