I added about 1.5 tsp of liquid smoke to the recipe and used apple cider vinegar instead of wine vinegar. It was really tasty and easy.

Easy delicious. Loved the vinegar tang and that there wasn't a lot of tomato taste - different than most pulled pork

I took the advice of the previous reviewer and added liquid smoke and replaced the red wine vinegar with Apple cider vinegar. However I only added about a teaspoon of the liquid smoke (I'm not a big fan of it) and I browned the pork on all sides in a pan with extra virgin olive oil. It turned out REALLY good, especially if you add Sweet Baby Ray Honey BBQ sauce to the sandwich.

I made it as written. The pork came out very tender, but lacked flavor. It could be partially because I used more than 2 pounds of meat. I am considering making more vinegar based "sauce" to add to our sandwiches, like you would find at a true NC picnic.
