Super easy--I love serving this sandwiched between warm Texas toast with tater tots and my yummy sour cream ranch dip!! So much left over, great to pack and freeze for later.

I have made this several times. It's sooo easy and the flavor depends on what your favorite sauce is, naturaly. I have one cooking now and am using a vinegar and pepper sauce, similar to eastern NC style. Seems to cut the fat better, in my humble opinion. Great to make when the "butts" are on sale and you want good que. Many thanks for posting.
