Finally got around to making this recipe for dinner last night! It was as easy as pie to make and very good. There was nothing we didn't like and would definitely make it again. Makes a good amount so we have some in the freezer for those last-minute meals. Thanks for a great recipe!

Made this today and husband and son enjoyed it in tacos with corn tortillas instead of buns. Thanks

I didn't want the ordinary burgers and dogs for my Memorial Day Dinner.So I began looking through some of the recipes I had in my pork cookbook,and came across this one.And,I'm so glad I did.:)The pork shoulder that I had weighed a little over 5 pounds,so instead of cutting it in half I just used the whole thing.My crockpot runs a little hot,so it was ready to shred in about 6 hours.The instructions were right on the money.For the taco seasoning I used Taco Bell Taco Seasoning Clone/Copycat and combined with the enchilada sauce I used, it gave the whole 5lbs. of pork just the right amount of "bite".I topped it with a little bit of Yes,it's Another Coleslaw Recipe and Baked Beans as a side.Had plenty leftover to freeze for another meal.Thank you for making our Memorial Day Dinner a very nice one.This will be made again,thank you for posting.
