Jamaican Slow Cooker Jerk Pulled Pork

If you've never made pulled pork in a slow cooker, well, it's high time!  Nowadays I don't know how to make it any other way--it's so easy, so good and absolutely goof-proof.  This is great party food and is perfect for a buffet table.

Trim one pork shoulder and place in slow cooker.  Top with 1 heaping tablespoon jerk seasoning and the juice of 1/2 lime (or lemon).  Place lid and cook on low for 10 hours.  When done transfer meat to a large board using a slotted spoon.  With two forks, pull meat apart removing fat if any and put in a serving roaster.  Strain remaining juices and pour over meat.  Serve hot.

I have a large slow cooker so almost always double the recipe and almost always cook mine overnight.  When I wake up in the morning, I prepare the meat and put in a serving roaster, cover with foil and refrigerate, then reheat in the oven just before serving.  Leftovers freeze beautifully.
