I followed the recipe exactly. After 7 hours I removed the pork from the crock pot and shredded it. The pork had great flavor!I put it back in the crockpot and stirred in the sauce as direct. Knowing what I know now,next time I will put very little sauce on or non at all. It was too much and made the pulled pork too saucy for my family's taste. Other than that it was a good recipe.

We love pulled pork so I thought I would try this recipe. It was delicious. My only suggestion for future is to make more sauce so there will be more gravy. the flavor was exactly right, just wanted more of it.

Excellent! The only change I'll do for next time is add a bit more brown sugar. I added some on top of my potato and meat and it was great though. I also froze half and am looking forward to having that meal too!
