Wow - we had this tonight and loved it! I made a half batch and half went to a friend and we kept the other half for us. DH said he wished we would have kept it all! The kids were fighting for the remains. I followed other reviewers' tips on doubling the sauce, so we have leftovers of that. Apart from using a bit of ground brown mustard seed, I followed the recipe exactly. The pork was very dry and I ended up using all of the juice to moisten it, but that didn't seem to detract from the incredible flavor of even just the dry rub. Definitely a keeper!
This was delicious. The pork was very tender, and the sauce was delicious. The pork cooked for 17 hours, and I let it rest for about 30 minutes. I definitely will double the sauce next time - one batch wasn't nearly enough for the six pound roast. We have a lot left over - I'm planning to freeze the rest. Thanks for sharing!
The sauce is absolutely wonderful! I even made sausage the next day so I had more reason to using it. The flavors in the meat have a zing to them that I like but, my husband tweaked it with some sweet baby rays because he thought it had too much zing. I will be making this again, and again, and again!
In a word, OUTSTANDING!!! I will definitely be making this again and I may go so far as to just make the BBQ sauce all by itself because I liked it so much. I don't even mind that I had to get up at midnight to start the roast so it had 18 hrs to cook before dinner at 6:00 pm. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!
amazing!!! we tried this a week ago & are ready to make it again for friends. i didn't do the jalepeno, but did substitute chinese hot mustard ;) thx so much for such a great recipe!!!
LOVE IT! I love everything about it! I do add a slice of melted provalone to the sandwich-but everything else made to a "t". Thank you for posting! Won't make pulled pork any other way from now on!
This is becoming a favorite of my family. I don't usually make my own BBQ, because we have a local sauce that we purchase. I also don't add the cayenne or jalepeno, simply because I have small children. Still enough kick (the sauce I use is slightly spicy) for the adults, mild enough for kids.
I wish I could have made the BBQ sauce to go with this but my stove is out of commission. I had about a 3 lb roast so I cooked it for about 6 hours and it was fall apart tender. In place of the homemade BBQ sauce I used our favourite brand. Kids thought this was great. Thanks for the recipe
This was amazing, a recipe worth keeping if only for the sauce! I was in the mood for something different when I saw pork butt on sale, and being from Texas, this totally fit the bill. :) Other than leaving out the liquid smoke and jalapeno, I followed the recipe using a 7ish pound bone in roast. I did cook it on high for about 5 hours and then switched to low for about 3 (didn't start it the night before), and it turned out tender and delicious. Next time I will double the sauce - that's the best part!
We loved it...I put in in crock pot on high for 8hrs...it was a 7 lb. roast...we loved the sauce.
