The only change I made was using shallots rather than garlic as some of our family members cannot tolerate garlic - also I seared the meat prior to placing in the crock pot and it came out perfect! Highly recommended! Read More

For me, it turned out too sour, I think because the kind of BBQ sauce I used was already sour so the addition of vinegar was too much, but otherwise I liked it. I might add even more onion and garlic next time Read More

This is by far the best recipe for pulled pork. I followed the recipe exactly. A hint: mix all the liquid ingredients and spices in a bowl first, then pour over the pork. Read More

This pulled pork is great. I used a pork butt and Stubb's BBQ sauce cooked it for 8 hours on low and it fell apart. I reserved the onions to use in the rolls.The problem I had was that I could not get the sauce to thicken. Will try to get it thicker the next time. Great flavor. Will make again. Read More

I lived in Memphis for three years and this is pretty close! I use a sweet bottled sauce in the crockpot and I also had trouble getting it to thicken but the pork tastes great. Read More

It took a little longer than expected because of the size of the pork shoulder we used, but turned out juicy with great flavor. Read More
