This recipe was was given to me by my neighbor. I first tried it at a bbq she was hosting, and I couldn't stop eating it! My family was hooked too. Incredibly moist, tender, and FULL of flavor. I begged her to teach me how to make it, and eventually she did. This is my go-to pork recipe for pulled pork and more.
