Saucy Barbecued Pork Sandwiches

These saucy sandwiches are great for a hungry crowd and easy to prepare. Once the meat is cooked, transfer to a slow cooker to keep warm until it’s time to serve. —Kim Wallace, Dennison, Ohio

    This was just ok until I doctored up the sauce with about 1/4 cup KC Masterpiece. Also, the roast didn't shred. After doing some research, this roast probably should have cooked at a lower temp for a longer time. I would try a different recipe next time.

    Very good and it used ingredients that I had on hand. We ate a sandwich and froze the rest. Looking forward to having more later.
