For the past 20 years, Smithfield's BBQ has been my favorite. I worked at the Wilmington, NC location as a teen, and since then, no other BBQ has come close. That is, until I made this recipe. Smithfield's will be first in my heart for nostalgic reasons, but now I can make a pulled pork at home that makes me just as happy. Thank you for posting this recipe!

This recipe gave me exactly what I was hoping for! Tender pulled pork that was not cooked in bbq sauce. It was tender and fell apart. I did cook the pork butt roast on low for about 7 hours and it was not ready, so I gave it a couple more hours on low and we ate it the next night. Worth the wait! It was perfect. I only used about half of the remaining vinegar mix when the pork was done because I was unsure of my kids liking it and it was thumbs up for all 3 kids. I made the Neely's BBQ sauce recipe to go along with it.

Fabulous recipe! I did add a Tbs of Tang to the rub and cut the cider vinegar down to 1/2 cup.
I was running short of time so I put my crockpot on high and cooked for 4 hours.(This will vary with crockpots, mine cooks fairly fast) I served this with " Creamy Cole Slaw" and Kaisher Buns and Lays Potato chips. Thanks for sharing your recipe! It's a keeper for sure :)
