  1. I almost want to NOT publicize my love for this recipe. Here it is flying under the radar with all its deliciousness!! I could make my fortune selling 16 hour pulled pork sammies, but if I tell the world the recipe, could someone scoop me? Has Colonel Sanders tweeted his 11 secret herbs and spices? Has Coke instagramed the secret formula? Hopefully keeping my choice of ginger ale under wraps will be enough.
  2. Good Stuff, very good stuff! I saved the liquid after the first 12 hours and got an awesome broth and fat (after I chilled it so it would separate). So it was a 3 for one deal. GREAT meat, tender, juice and the flavor of the BBQ sauce you use, pork fat, and pork broth. All cheap, easy, and with very little of my precious time involved in doing it.
  3. We made this for my son's Bday party. Everyone loved it! Since our son has Celiac, we used Annie's Natural BBQ sauce which is gluten-free. My only other change was to add a bit of minced garlic in with the onions. An easy to make-ahead BBQ that turns out juicy and tasty. Even better the second day as leftovers.
  4. excellent. I favor hickory smoked BBQ sauce.
