When should I add bacon to my slow cooker recipe if I'm cooking on high for 6 hours?

Making BBQ pulled pork with an apple based BBQ sauce. I wanted to cut up pieces of bacon to put in there with everything else. I assumed putting it in at the beginning would be too long to cook the bacon so I was aiming for about an hour before the pork is done cooking. I put the pork on high for 6 hours in the crock pot.

Not sure what you want from the bacon, but for flavoring the overall dish it should go in at the beginning- I really can't see overcooking as a worry in a pulled pork dish. If you want crispy bacon, you'd probably have to put it on when serving.

After cooking it separately, of course. If you want raw bacon, I don't want to know about it.
