Shredded Pork (Pulled Pork) BBQ

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by manushag

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 recipe #50639 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.
