This is so yummy. Made exactly how written and my husband and I really enjoyed it. It's got a kick along with a sweet punch. Satisfies all tastes. Next time I will made a batch with a little less chili powder because my 3 year old thought it was a little too "hot" For adults, it's great!!!!!!!

This is Horrible,Respectfully, just go buy some from UR Favorite BBQ Joint! Cooking a pork loin for hours is just plain nuts..try this Pork Butt( 1/2 the $$ of Loin) cut into 8-10oz pcs, put in C-pot , add Cheap apple juice , little coke cola , little liquid smoke , for same time ..remove , pull, add sauce in separate pan,simmer for 10 minutes or let friend or family sauce their own ... More Better ! ;-))

Pretty darn good.After I shredded my pork I put it back in my crock pot with some of the juice and it was so moist and tasty, Had them on whole wheat boleos .Its a keeper.

Made this for a family reunion. I had an 8 lb. boneless pork butt, just fit into the slow cooker. I cooked it 4 hrs on high and then about 8 hrs on low. I had nothing left by the time everyone went through the line once. I took 2 dozen buns and they were all gone. I increased this recipe to serve 12 people. It was so easy and flavorful. I would definitely make it again.

A hit! Based on the comments of some reviewers, I omitted the brown sugar. I also added liquid smoke. Definitely a keeper!

Really good. Had a lot of leftover sauce so I stuck the leftovers in freezer. Used Sweet baby rays BBq sauce and a pork roast

Easy to make, but too sweet. I added a little vinegar to the leftovers and it made a big difference.
