Southern Yank Pulled Pork BBQ

"I'm a Yank. This is a Southern dish. We meet in the middle. Pulled pork shoulder slow-cooked in spices and sauces, great for a low-stress day, potluck, or any get-together. Put it on before work, ready when you get home! Fantastic over a bun, johnnycake, or just by itself."

USE ROOTBEER!!I made this the other day. It was actually my second time. This time I substituted some of the water with a good rootbeer used a little honey bourbon(don't worry, the alcohol cooks out) and some honey, cut back on the sugar a little bit and balanced out the sweetness with some hot sauce and red pepper flakes. It was much much better the second time around. Hope someone trys my version and I hope you like it!!


I put this on before church and after watching a couple a couple of football games when we got home, we totaled it. It was so tender it fell apart as I was getting it out of the crockpot, dropping back in and splashing the juices all over the place, including my Sunday pants! The only change I made was to add some Liquid Smoke. This is a definite favorite in this house.


Excellent!! Used a little less water for a slightly thicker sauce.
