Thank you so much for posting this. My mother has the same Betty Crocker book and gave me the recipe, but I lost it before I got to make it. I did a search hoping I'd find it and here it is! This is awesome with fresh cole slaw, and even better is the pulled pork sandwiches the next day -- IF there's any left. It makes your house smell yummy, too.
