"I used a 3 lb pork shoulder butt roast and made the recipe as is. It fell apart after five hours in the slow cooker. The only downside for us would be I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original bbq sauce, which we normally love, but for this recipe found it way too sweet. Added creamy coleslaw on top of the pork for each bun and it added a nice flavour as well. Will definitely try this one again using a difference bbq sauce and fresh ginger instead of dry. Very easy and it would be great to serve company."
"It was pretty good when preparing of a supper for both mild and spicy fellows. The spicy people can add some jalapenos or other hot peppers to get the extra punch! (Like me!)"
"This was just ok to us. Needed more flavor for our tastes."
"I haven't made it yet but I KNOW it will be delicious - but I need to know, what is 'seasoned salt' ? If I can't find that, can I season it myself and if so, with what? Thank you in advance."
"A good barbecue recipe. The honey adds a subtle sweetness to create a mild sauce."
