I live in eastern North Carolina, where pulled pork bbq is KING, so you could say that I am a bbq connoisseur. While cooking pork in the crock pot doesn't yield the same flavor as smoking the pork over hickory wood chips, this was still pretty good. The pork was definitely tender and juicy, not dry at all. If you don't have time to cook the pork on Low for 10-12 hours, you could cook it on the High setting for 6. Thanks princessmommie. Made for Pick a Chef, Fall 2011.
