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."
