Easy simple and delicious. And tender is right, the meat was falling off the bones.I threw this together this morning and this evening we had a yummy dinner. The gravy was a nice change from the usual barbeque sauce.

Very easy recipe and had good flavor. I did not get it on when I wanted to and had only six hours in the crookpot. I sarted out on high reducing to low. After six hours thay were tender and flavorful. The only thing that I did different was to add some liquid smoke to the recipe. I will try it again when I can get the full 8 to 1o hours on low and see what happens.
