Dr Spicy BBQ Pork Recipe

I served this at my son's graduation party and kept it warm in a slow cooker after roasting it in the oven. The pork is great by itself or piled high on rolls. Or use it to make BBQ pizza. —Michelle Gauer, Spicer, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 7, 2014

"My hubby isn't a fan of spice so I only added 2 chipotle peppers. Even with the two peppers, it was still on the spicy side (nothing an extra dab of cole slaw couldn't fix). We'll stick with our sweet bbq pork recipes, but thanks for the experiment!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 28, 2014

"This was delicious! It made a lot, I am planning to use part of the leftovers to make a pizza, some to make a salad and freeze the rest in portions. I made it as the recipe directs except for adding all of the cooking juices back in. I just added enough to reach my desired sauciness! I will certainly be making this again!"

MY REVIEW

"Yum! Delicious and a little on the spicy side. My husband loved it! I halved the recipe for a small roast and cooked it in the crock pot. Turned out great."
