I loved this recipe...so easy in the crockpot. I didn't have bbq sauce, so I nearly doubled the spices and added 2 teaspoons of Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning. I cooked it all day in the crockpot with 3 cups of water. At the end of the day, I pulled the pork and strained the juice. I then put those back together on the stove top to simmer a bit. The flavor was GREAT! We used it for sandwiches. Read More

I'm sorry but this was not very good. It lacks seasoning and tastes only like whatever bbq sauce you use. Read More

Very good, I removed the meat and allowed it to cool then chopped it and put it into a casserole. I poured BBQ sauce over the meat and added about 1/2 cup broth from pot to keep it nice and juicy. I covered the casserole with foil and baked at 350 degrees for about 30 min. then served it on buns with sliced red onion and sweet pepper strips. Read More

Fantastic! I got added broth instead of water, let the liquid reach a boil on the stove and then put it in the oven at 250 degrees for six and a half hours. Read More

I used a center cut pork roast which is a little less fatty than a pork butt and not much more expensive. I cooked it 8 hours on low in the slow cooker and then shredded the meat and returned it to the cooker with barbeque sauce for another 30 minutes. I did add a bit of the cooking liquid back to the pot to keep the meat nice and moist. The success of any type of pulled pork has to do with choosing a barbeque sauce that you really like. I used Sweet Baby Ray's and my pulled pork fanatic declared it superb! Read More

Wow. What else can I say? This has proved to be easier than I ever imagined and absolutely delicious. I read in a review that it ends up tasting like whatever barbeque sauce you use... so I took care and bought some of the really good stuff. I ended up having to use two bottles. And a suggestion! Something seemed to be lacking so I sprinkled some brown sugar on top and mixed in. WOWZA! It was like magic! Read More

This is absolutely devine!! I made an 8# roast and took it to work to share. It was a HUGE hit! I rubbed the seasonings into the meat and placed the roast in my crockpot. I added water turned it on low and woke to the delicious smell of pork. The meat had fallen completely off the bone. This is definately a keeper! Thanks for sharing. Read More

This is great! The success of this recipe depends very much on the barbecue sauce used. I think it is important to pour off the excess grease and then add more barbecue sauce prior to serving. Served this with cole slaw chips pickles and fresh brewed iced tea. Thanks! Read More

Fabulous!! My family flipped for it so I am making it again tonight for mom dad sister and kids. If you are using BBQ sauce... use Sweet Baby Ray's... I am so picky and these turned out AMAZING! Going to try the slow cooker this time though. Read More
