"I'm a Yank. This is a Southern dish. We meet in the middle. Pulled pork shoulder slow-cooked in spices and sauces, great for a low-stress day, potluck, or any get-together. Put it on before work, ready when you get home! Fantastic over a bun, johnnycake, or just by itself."

1 (3 pound)

USE ROOTBEER!!I made this the other day. It was actually my second time. This time I substituted some of the water with a good rootbeer used a little honey bourbon(don't worry, the alcohol cooks out) and some honey, cut back on the sugar a little bit and balanced out the sweetness with some hot sauce and red pepper flakes. It was much much better the second time around. Hope someone trys my version and I hope you like it!!
I made this yesterday exactly as written. Smelled really good. Had some rolls to make like bbq sandwiches. It didnt come out as thick as I thought it would. Maybe next time I will reserve some of the bbq sauce or not add the water. But overall, it was a really good flavor. We had lots left cuz I made a 5lb roast for 3 of us. So we will be eating it again tonight. Just trying to figure what to eat it with...
I put this on before church and after watching a couple a couple of football games when we got home, we totaled it. It was so tender it fell apart as I was getting it out of the crockpot, dropping back in and splashing the juices all over the place, including my Sunday pants! The only change I made was to add some Liquid Smoke. This is a definite favorite in this house.
Excellent!! Used a little less water for a slightly thicker sauce.
This was the best pulled pork we have tried. Wouldn't change a thing!
This recipe was awesome! We really enjoyed it! Thanks so much for sharing it :) We definitely will make this again.
Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great!
