I'm going to make some barbeque pulled pork in a slow cooker. I've done it a few times with some good results, but I'm always looking for ways to improve.
Here's what I've been doing:
1. Brine pork for a few hours
2. Slow cook all day with carrots, celery, and onions
3. Shred and toss with Montgomery Inn or Hickory Brown Suger Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce
Here's the question: Would browning the pork help in any way? Could the pan drippings be used to jazz up the bbq sauce?
EDIT: this also popped into my head: Should I sautee the onions ahead of time?
