My husband loved it - I thought it was ok, maybe too much vinegar for me?
My family really liked this, including my three kids. The meat was very tender, the barbecue sauce was very good. My kids didn't like the carrots, though. No surprise there. That just meant that there was more for me! It was also nice to put the meat in the crock pot and have it all ready at the end of the day. We will definitely make this again whenever pork roast is on sale. It made delicious BBQ sandwiches for leftovers as well. The only reason I didn't give it a 5-star rating is because it was pork shoulder. The meat is not an "outstanding" meat for me. Now,if it were Beef Wellington.......
