Pulled Pork Shoulder in Crock Pot with Disappearing Bone?

sillyp | Sep 25, 201102:23 PM

I've been making boneless pork shoulder in the crock pot for pulled pork sandwiches and it's delicious. The other night I tried it with a bone-in pork shoulder. I used the same recipe for a rub, added liquid (cider vinegar and water), cooked it on low for about 8 or 9 hours, and when I went to shred it up, I noticed the bone was 90% gone. There was only a small, about 3" long, pencil sized piece of bone left.

Where's the rest of the bone?

The pork was delicious, but the whole bone thing kind of put me off. Did I cook it too long? Something else? Is this all right? Has it happened to anyone else out there?
