This was excellent, we used it for a topping for a baked potato bar. Used left overs for tacos. It is very versatile, I will make it many times and it is so easy to make!

Overall, this had a good flavor, but we didn't like it at all on a bun. It tasted great though as a pulled pork taco! The ingredients seemed to go better in a taco rather than on a bun.

I added sweet baby rays honey barbeque sauce to this the last 30 minutes it was cooking. Probably one of the best pulled pork sandwiches i've had.

I served this with cheese toast and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. I really like the rub and I'm sure I will make this recipe often.

Good but too peppery; would reduce cayenne & black pepper both by at least 1/2. I also thought it could use some garlic and more salt.

Nice change from BBQ sauce. Might ad white kidney beans and rotel canned tomatoes next time and turn it into chili. Add more hot peppers if you like your chili hot.

These were awesome. Even my super picky son loved them, and he doesn't like much.

This is the first pulled pork recipe I have ever tried. My husband doesn't care for BBQ sauce and this was delicious and so easy to make. I was worried it would be a bit spicy as in hot spicy,but it wasn't. It was spicy as in flavor. I may add more Jalapenos next time just to give it a kick,but I highly recommend this recipe :)
