Very moist pulled pork, perfect for a crowd because it is not too spicy (though it does have a bit of a kick) and the flavors are not too strong. It is a good pulled pork to serve with your favorite BBQ sauce. I like Sweet Baby Ray's or Maull's. Would make again!

Delicious!! I used a 4.5lb pork shoulder, seasoned with our family's spice preferences: bit of sea salt, pepper, and onion & garlic powders. I dissolved 1 tsp of chicken base, as well as 1 tsp of beef base in the 1 cup of water (I couldn't imagine using just plain water). Cooked on high for an hour, then low for 4.5 hours, and it was fall-apart tender.....practically shredded itself! Before adding the bbq sauce about 30 minutes before we were ready to eat (used Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory & Brown Sugar), I saved some plain pork for my 4 year-old, who practically inhaled this, even though she's suffering through a summer cold. Served on corn-dusted kaiser rolls, along with coleslaw, this was the quintessential summer meal. Looking forward to leftovers!

This definitely is a great recipe for "Perfect Pulled Pork"! And just as stated the pork is "fall-apart tender and mouthwateringly moist". I used apple cider vinegar vs. water and cooked it low and slow. When it was done, I added a little liquid smoke. This is so easy to prepare and delicious topped with your favorite bbq sauce and served with all the fixin's: coleslaw, cornbread, and baked beans - YUM!
