July is BBQ season. OK, it’s always BBQ season, but July especially means BBQ, which means Whitney, AccidentalAthlete’s guest foodie, is bringing readers an ancho chile pulled pork recipe. I’m allowing it, even though it’s a Southern Carolina style sauce.

You will need a large crockpot for this and a fine chunk of meat! This recipe is an oldie but a goodie from Paleospirit.com. If you’re cooking it for the week, just dump the meat back into the pot with the sauce and let it soak up all that goodness!

Some of the ingredients are below. Get the full recipe here:

Dry Rub Ingredients:

2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
2 tablespoons course sea salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

For the pork:

1 (7-9 pound) pork roast, either shoulder or butt
1/4 cup water
