Reviews for Pulled BBQ Pork
"Real North Carolina barbeque does not have tomatoes in it."
"If you use chefdaddy BBQ sauce, you will do a flip."
"I followed the recipe as written except for straining the vegetables from the sauce before recombining with the pulled pork and adding a dash of salt. My family and I loved it I thought it really captured the North Carolina BBQ flavor."
"I made this yesterday and we all liked it. Even my picky brother said it was good!"
"I thought this was a good recipe, though I wish the BBQ sauce was a little more tangy. My boyfriend didn't like it though. However, he's not fond of any slow-cooker pork recipes so far."
"As usual, I always try a recipe that everyone gave 5 stars, so I was very disappointed when I made this and didn't like it one bit. No one in my house ate it either. I ended up throwing it all away. Looking back, I should have been clued in...the ingredients were a strange mix for pork BBQ: cumin, brown sugar?! It just wasn't a good combination. It certainly didn't taste like NC BBQ!"
"My husband and I enjoyed this sandwich."
"awesome! my family loved it"
"I made this today exactly by the recipe, and it was delicious. I wouldn't change a thing!"
"Add 1 cup of beef broth--not enough liquid. Quite flavorful--needs no individual seasoning!"
