An Easy Route to That Smoky, Meaty Classic

This throw-it-all-in-the-pot pulled-pork dish is the ultimate low-effort party food. While traditional recipes can involve brining the meat for 12 hours, and then smoking it for at least another 10, this one essentially involves putting all the ingredients in the cooker and returning in six hours. It combines onion, bay leaves, crushed and whole tomatoes and boneless pork shoulder with one magical ingredient: chipotle in adobo sauce. The pepper adds just the right amount of smoky heat, which you can temper with coleslaw and pickles on the side.
