Cajun Pulled Pork

From Cookipedia

I am experimenting with spice mixes from Taste Sensation Ltd; their Tex Mex marinade was wonderful so I arranged to get samples of their popular blends.

As this is an experiment I bought 1.4kg of pork shoulder and got the butcher to cut it into three slices. This recipe uses one of those slices. I can use the other two to experiment with more of the Taste Sensation seasonings.

Chef's notes

This was very, very good. Impressed with the Cajun Seasoning, not too hot but had tangy, herby notes. I needed to add a little extra liquid near the end, but only 50 ml or so.
