Here's a lower fat variation on the theme of pulled pork, a barbecue favorite from the South. If you like intensely smoky flavour, increase the quantity of the liquid smoke, but be careful--a little goes a long way. Serve this between hot split onion or Kaiser buns, accompanied by a bowl of coleslaw for a "down home" dinner that all will enjoy.

This was very good...my whole family loved it. The only change I made was to sub the corn syrup with molasses and honey, and to make 1 1/2 times the sauce recipe to make it juicier. Came out perfect!
brilliant. i just made a lower carb version and used splenda instead of the corn syrup. thanks for posting this!
i know i reviewed this before, oh well, we love this recipe!! dh lived in TN and AL before he met me(and was happy) and he had no clue that this was not pork. i have made one tiny change, i don't use the corn syrup because there is enough sugar in the ketchup. really great recipe!!!!
