"I got me a crock pot,, nuff said.. The long and low melted most of the greasiness out of the shoulder, and the vinegar apple juice combination added a sweet moistness to the final product."

"We really liked this. I thought it was a little dry...probably because I do not have a medium setting on my crockpot. I cooked it for 10 hours on high...next time I will try the low setting."
"This was my first time making pulled pork and it turned out delicious! I didn't have any problems with it being too salty like some reviewers mentioned. I thought it was perfect! I cooked mine on low for about 11 hours and it was just right. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I am a newbie to using a crock pot and I have never made pulled pork before. I recieved about 7 recipes from friends but they all called to cook the pork in the serving sauce and I just thought that to spice the meat would be better - so people could sauce it for added sweetness to personal taste.
This was PERFECT. I wouldn't change a thing. Easy and Delicious. I got soo many requests for the "place" I ordered the pulled pork from I owe T. Wolfe a compliment or two!"
"This recipe was fantastic! My boyfriend and I enjoyed this pulled pork in sandwiches along with a spicy chipotle slaw (recipe #232299). The combination of flavors was spectacular. I took the advice of T. Woolfe and substituted liquid smoke for the mesquite powder. I just brushed the liquid smoke over the meat before patting the meat with the dry rub. I've cooked pork in the crock pot several times before, but never has the meat been so full of rich flavors. So easy and so delicious."
"I made this recipe for an annual party we throw. At least 50 people every year and this year I wanted it to be no fuss so I upped this recipe quite a bit with NO problems.
Marinated it for two days just because I knew I wouldn't have much time the day before. It was AWESOME. EVERY SINGLE PERSON who tried it said it was SO GOOD and they couldn't stop going back up for more. The next day for lunch we asked what everyone wanted and we ended up having to heat up the leftover pork again. I'd say that is a hit when over 50 people agree it is WONDERFUL. Will be keeping and making many times over."
"My husband says, "Thank you for posting this recipe!". He absolutely loved it, and he's a picky food critique. For me, it is the best pulled pork I've eaten. The rub makes it amazing. I did not have cajun seasoning, so made my own. It turned out perfectly. Excellent recipe! If I could give it more than five stars, I most certainly would. This is so good, we ate it without any sauce!"
"I made this recipe exactly as written EXCEPT I did not have apple juice in the house. I did have apple cider (alcoholic) so I used that, it was fantastic! I used a lean cut of pork, yet it was moist and delicious.<br/><br/>Thanks for submitting a winner!"
"I was very nervous because I came home and the house smelled REALLY bad.. however... after shreading and mixing with a jar of Sweet Baby Rays it was the MOST AMAZING pulled pork I have had in my life! WOW was it good!"
"Incredible tasting and incredibly easy to make! Bought a 4.5 lb. piece of pork and rubbed it overnight. I was concerned about time so I cooked it on high for the first 4 hours, then switched it back and forth from low to high occasionally. It was ready after about 10 hours in the crock. Delicious, super easy to shred right in the crock pot, and perfectly tender. Served on small round french rolls with coleslaw."
"The pork shoulder came out moist and delicious,, nuff said........"
"So good and easy!"
"My husband loves to smoke pork shoulder on the grill....it takes HOURS. One July 4th we decided to smoke it early; good thing....30 hours later the last piece was done! I decided to try an alternative. This is it! Perfect! I just used a bottled rub I had for the pork, put it in with a little over 1/2 cup cider vinegar and about 1/4 cup water. I cooked it on high for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours and then turned to low overnight. I don't have a medium setting on my Rival crock pot. He declares it the best he's had....so next time we will put it in the crock pot to cook and put it in the smoker or grill before serving for that smoked flavor and we'll be good to go! Love it!"
"I followed the directions on the recipe pretty much exactly as written. The only change I did was substituted liquid smoke for mesquite powder and my crockpot doesn't have a med setting so I cooked it on high for just under 10 hours. My first problem with the recipe is it made my house smell like vinegar for the first 2 hours although after that is smelled pretty good. My main problem with the recipe was that the liquid boilled out of the crockpot and the roast burnt. I didn't even know this was possible in a crock pot. I was able to salvage enough of the meat for dinner for my hubby and I but no leftovers. It tasted pretty good, although a bit salty (like 3.5 to 4 stars good). However, it took me 2 days to chip the charred mess out of my crock pot, not to mention the waste of food. As I said, my crock pot doesn't have a med. setting so I did have to leave it on high for about 10 hours. I am guessing it was some limitation of my cheap crock pot, but unless yours has a med. setting, I wouldn't recommend it."
"The smell of this cooking was fantastic but unfortunately the taste was not what I thought it would be. The spices wer so overpowering and the meat turned out extremely salty and I did not even use all the salt it suggested. Sorry to be negative. It was not terrible but just did not cut it for our family."
"Awesome! So easy! Just add everything and forget it!"
"cooked this last night and served it today. It was perfect! I used a 3.5 lb boston butt and it just fell off the bone even before we went to church. The fat layer peeled off, and the juice wasn't at all fatty. Absolutely easy to make, once you start with the rubbed pork overnight. Delicious."
"This is the best pulled pork I have ever made! It is tender and so flavorful. We top our sandwiches with a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce and coleslaw. I'm pretty sure this is my two growing boys favorite meal now."
"Excellent pork. Subbed a chipotle in adobo for the chipotle powder and mesquite powder. Cooked for 5 1/2 hours on high, and another 5 on low, and it was falling completely off the bone and very tender. Served as sandwiches with some barbecue sauce and slaw. Thanks for posting!"
