I have NEVER made BBQ anything because you either get it right, or you don't. I found this recipe a few months ago, and I purchased a 7.5 pound pork shoulder on sale from Wegman's. ($1.29/pound). It sat in my freezer because I was scared to try it! (Note: I'm a city girl that is dating a country boy....so the pressure was definitely on!!) I decided to give it a whirl. I read through about 200 reviews and did tweak the recipe due to the fear of there not being any seasoning in the recipe....I used a pork shoulder, rubbed the meat with McCormick's Pulled Pork Seasoning and wrapped in saran wrap overnight, poured in anentire 2 liter bottle of Barq's Root Beet, and used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. It was a HIT!! My boyfriend who is as country as country can be said this was the best he's ever had. Granted, he "had" to say that or he'd be sleeping on the couch! My 15 yr old son, however, is brutally honest when it comes to giving his opinion....and he gave it 2 thumbs up! YEAH!!!! The meat was very tender (not mushy like some claimed)...it slid right off the bone when I drained the meat. This is a keeper...not just for the yumminess, but for the simplicity of the ingredients and the process in making it!! Thank you to the original poster for sharing this recipe!!
