This was definitely a great recipe, but I have to give it only 4 stars. Using pork tenderloin for pulled pork is like using beef tenderloin for meatloaf - the basic idea is right but overkill. Pork shoulder roast or a picnic cut is better. Really any cheaper cut of higher fat pork will work better than tenderloin. All that being said, the tenderloin does work and provides a low fat, but more dry pulled pork. I've also used Dr. Pepper, added sliced sweet onion, 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar and 1 t. red pepper flakes. Adds a little zing to the sweet. It's been my experience that the pork comes out better cooked on LO for the entire time. If you have to shorten your cooking time and use HI, be sure that all of the meat is covered with liquid and place the onion under the pork to avoid burning or overcooking.
