Very good recipe. My husband really loves pulled pork and he complimented this recipe a lot. Followed recipe exactly except for the jalapenos which I left out.

I made this the past weekend, and it was great. I had a few minor modifications. I used a store bought rub that I had (Bone Suckin' Sauce/Rub - from NC), and I let the roast sit in the rub for 4-5 hours before I started the rest. For the pork, I used 3T light brown sugar instead of the regular sugar, and I used garlic powder instead of the garlic salt, and red wine vinegar (because that's what I had) instead of cider vinegar, and I added 1 tsp of liquid smoke (mesquite flavor), and left out the jalapeno pepper. I wasn't going to make the bbq sauce, but I had the time and the ingredients, so I did. I used less mustard then it called for based on the review here - maybe only 3/4 c? The only subsitution I made was with the red wine vinegar for the cider vinegar (again). I cooked the pork on low for over 12 hours, at which time it didn't look like it was going to pull, so I turned it up to high for another 2-3 hours. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, and it was fabulous. I will make it again, and I think I'll stick with the red wine vinegar since we liked it so much.

This is now my go-to recipe for pulled pork. I have made it a couple of times although I have done so with store bought BBQ sauce each time. I only cook it for 8 hours in the crock pot and it come out great! I highly recommend these topped with homemade coleslaw!!!

This is delicious but definitely has a bit of a kick, so if you are sensitive to spices you might want to cut back a bit. In addition, I did find that while the BBQ sauce was tasty, there was a bit too much mustard. To compensate I added a bit extra soya sauce and a bit extra brown sugar. All in all this recipe is a keeper... my husband gobbled it right up and has been raving about it!

We took this to church potluck, it was a very good sandwich! We substituted the BBQ sauce with KC Masterpiece original. Apparently people did not realize it was a sandwich and most did not use the buns, however ALL of the meat was gone and there was plenty of other food at this potluck. My wife thought that the pork broke down too much so you lost that shedded look, but she loved the taste and is very sensative to spicy foods. We put the jalapeno in the crock pot with the onions. We will definately make again!

This was GREAT. We loved every bite, and so did all of our guests. We did not try the sauce, we have our own personal favorite sauce we make from scratch (Tyler's Ultimate), but the pork was so good that i am inclined to try it next time.

I made this to take along on vacation with us. I cooked the pork and sauce, loaded them up and reheated them in a crockpot when we got to Disney. We loved it, flavorful and juicy. Thank you for posting.

Fantastic! I let this cook for about 12 hours and it was perfect. I also really liked the sauce and I'm pretty picky about my BBQ sauce. I brought the leftovers to work and it was scarfed down and raved about for days by my employees. Thanks for this killer recipe!
