I am so excited that fall is officially here and that the temperature is heading down!  This always brings my appetite up and my slow cooker out.  With Football season well under way and the World Series headed in to game 6 it’s time to have all your friends over for a big party.  With a big party you need to feed those hungry mouths with some good and hearty food.

Having in lived in Memphis, TN for most of my life I am kinda fussy about the BBQ I eat.  Now that I live in Kansas City, where they have such a different style, I take every chance I can get to have the Southern way.  When ordering long distance from The Germantown Commissary is out of the question I make my own.

Tender slow cooked meat in the perfect blend of spices is a perfect Sports watching food.  Adding in your own homemade BBQ makes it even better.

I use spices that I am sure that you have in your pantry right now.  Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin, Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika.

To get that perfect taste I cook the pork roast in apple cider vinegar and beer!  It might seem like a strange concoction but trust me when I say that you can not go wrong with this recipe.

    I would make a pot of chili, my Dad’s favorite. We recently lost my Mama to Alzheimer’s and that would be a great “comfort” food for him. Plus, we are getting into November & cooler temps. & what better way to keep warm.

        Thank you Chandra for your kind words. Thankfully, Dad & I were able to keep Mama home and in familiar surroundings. I work full-time but still did their cooking and cleaning. Wouldn’t take anything for the time spent with her.

    First off, that BBQ pulled pork recipe looks divine! And to top it off with cole slaw makes it that much better. My mouth is watering now. The first meal I would make in this crock pot is the Mississippi crockpot roast. Yummy!!

    Used a crockpot for years. Nothing gets you in the mood for comfort food like smelling the flavor through the day or stepping in the door ready to eat! It’s must for BBQ if you don’t want to fuss with a smoker. Best kitchen tool, and they keep getting better.
