MY REVIEW

This was a wonderful, flavorful recipe! The red pepper & cayenne add a nice bit of kick but can probably be lessened for a milder flavor. The pulled pork was awesome on some toasted onion rolls. My only question was we wanted a BBQ sauce from the left over juice to top our sandwiches- any suggestions to make that?

BOOM!!!!! Soooo good, the pork barely made it to the buns for sandwiches! My girls ate it in a bowl by itself :)

My husband is an eastern NC barbecue snob. The fact that my whole family loves this pulled pork - including my husband - definitely makes this a keeper! I've made it multiple times already and am getting ready to make it again.
