My primo pork is smoky, tender and tastes like it came from a barbecue joint. Without much help from me, it basically shreds itself. —Lauren Adamson, Layton, UT

"Very tasty pulled pork. Very tender and easy to pull. I didn't add the barbecue sauce, I served it on the side so everyone could add it to their own taste."

"This is bar none the best pork I have ever made. I used a mesquite liquid smoke and the meat had amazing flavor on it's own. Very tender! The only thing I did differently was to keep some cooking juices in it to keep it moist. I didn't add the bbq sauce so that people could choose their own. I brought it to a cub scout function. Delicious!"

"I've tried a number of pulled pork recipes and always was disappointed in some way. Not this time! This is a keeper! Although, even washing several times after rubbing the seasonings into the roast, I could smell the seasonings on my hands all day at work. What a way to get the appetite going! :-)"
