Makes a tender and delicious sandwich. MUST top with your favorite cole slaw, and serve on a burger bun. I recommend making a large amount and freezing half for another day.

This was delicious. I had to leave out the mustard seeds because I had none, so I rubbed the roast with Bone Dust BBQ Rub and let it sit over night. DD, DH and SIL all agree it is outstanding! Tender, flavorful and a keeper. Thanks for sharing. NOTE: I used a whole pork roast in the crockpot on low for 8 hours for this.

My family absolutely loved this meal. I did drain some of the liquid cause to me it was a little to runny with the juices. I probably removed about 1/2 cup to 1 cup. I added about 1 cup of BBQ cause I do like the BBQ flavor. I also did not have liquid smoke but am planning on buying some. My family all voted it was a 5 star. Thanks for the recipe
