This was great. We served this last night at a church dinner. I cooked 35lbs of pork shoulder. I did one in the crockpot on high it took six hours for a whole shoulder. The other four I did in the oven at 300 degrees. The took only about 5 hours. I did add some water to the sauce and covered them with foil. I found that the sauce came out much nicer in the ones in the oven. The sauce in the crock pot was quite watery, whereas the others carmalized nicely and stayed somewhat thicker. Excellent recipie. We got rave reviews. The flavour of the sauce was great! Thanks Olga Drozd. BTW we served this with Red Green Slaw for Pulled pork Sandwichs (#19623)

I have made this recipe multiple times. I love the smokiness that you get from the liquid smoke. i like to switch it up and sometimes serve it over rice for a change.
