I made this recipe EXACTLY as written and I though it was very good. SumBrenda is right. This is a recipe for making a very moist pulled pork in your slow-cooker to which you later add the BBQ sauce or seasonings of your choice. It doesn't have a great deal of flavor on its own, but it isn't meant to. Everyone in my family added their own favorite sauce to the little piles on their plates. I liked it best with a vinegar-based Carolina sauce. Of the base recipe, I would probably have added a little more liquid smoke. I ended up putting a quart-sized bag of it in the freezer after a meal of it on the day I cooked it. I saved some of the leftover liquid from the slow-cooker and put it in the fridge to solidify any fat and skim it off. I then used a bit of this jus in the freezer bag to keep the pork from drying out. Since the finished pork doesn't have a strong flavor, I think you could also easily turn this from southern BBQ to something Mexican with green chiles and additional spices. I'll definitely do this again, especially since it'll soon be too cold outside to cook a lot on the grill.
