Creating Super Bowl recipes is always so much fun! I know for some, the Super Bowl is about the game…not for me! For me, Super Bowl is ALL about the food!
I am not even a little shy to say that if you make this pulled BBQ recipe for your Super Bowl party, I can guarantee all of your (meat eating) guests will be more than happy, no matter what the outcome of the game is. Heck, the Patriots aren’t in it, so who even cares anyway (honestly though – I think Cam Newton is something pretty special and excited to see what he does in his first Super Bowl).
I have made this recipe once in my slow cooker, and once in the oven. Both were equally as scrumptious, but for Super Bowl planning reasons, I am sharing the crock pot recipe today. Throw and go is best when you are planning to entertain, or take something to a pot luck.
This recipe is really great because once it is done you can do anything with the pulled meat. Sliders, tacos, empanadas, salads, pizza….seriously, anything!
