    Very easy great taste. Since pork loin is usually one of the cheapest cuts of pork it is also economical.

    This recipe turned out very well. I used a 4lb. pork roast that ended up requiring well over the allotted time to adequately tenderize. I picked it apart with my hands to simplify and expedite the shredding process. I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and Coke Zero. It was a hit and I will make it again!

    I used a pork loin. Next time I think I would just use a pork roast. The seasoned salt and garlic gave this a good flavor. I used diet Pepsi as my soda. Very tender. I like lots of BBQ sauce so added extra.

    yes, but with changes by using Mrs Dash seasonings. It has far to much sodium and cholesterol, but very tasty. I could only eat 1/4 of the sandwich because of the sodium content.

    This turned out awesome. The garlic powder and salt were the base for the flavor. I used the hickory and brown sugar bottled BBQ sauce and found I needed to add another bottle. Then it was perfect. Excellent for a football party.

    This was okay, just not very flavorful. We'll try a different pork barbecue recipe next time.
