Pretty good...not 5 stars in my opinion. I made this with a 4.5# bone-in chuck pork roast. For MY taste...it was too onion-y (I put most on top...1" dices) and would not do that next time which "might" redeem the recipe. Also, the juice was just way too oily. I did not add oil (based on reviews) and painstakingly removed the fat when shredding. I read numerous reviews and decided to cook it on low over-night (aprox 9 hours). I took it out to shred, and poured the juices into a sieve to remove the solids and then added the juice and shredded meat back into my Rival 6-qt crockpot for about 2 more hours. The meat was plenty tender and juicy. What I didn't love was the flavor. I tried to doctor it up by adding more Sweet Baby Ray's Sauce...which helped. I finally decided to put the meat in the fridge while I put the sauce on the stove to reduce due to it being fairly "watery". I finally gave up on the sauce after a couple of hours - it thickened but was just too oily. I served the meat, which I heated with an additional 1/2 - 3/4 cup BBQ sauce, with warmed BBQ sauce for those who wanted more BBQ flavor. My company seemed to enjoy the meat. It was not "bad", just didn't bowl me over like "Slow Cooker Pulled Pork" recipe from this site. Because tastes vary, I do think this is worth giving a shot, but for my own taste, I am on the fence as to whether or not I am going to give it another shot with some changes.
