This was SO good. I was afraid it wouldn't turn out, but it was fabulous. I made the recipe exactly as posted, using a cheapie old pork butt (79 cents a pound) and it was delicious. We sliced the meat thinly and had it for dinner and then shredded the leftovers for BBQ sandwiches. This recipe is a Keeper!!

Although a stone's throw away from the Golden Dome at Notre Dame, I went to Michigan State and am a true, die hard Spartan. Dubbed by my husband as a "messie chef", I love to cook and try new recipes out on my family. I also have quite a cookbook collection and practically read them like novels. What can I say, I love food and appreciate all kinds. I love to sample regional favorites on various trips. I'm also a mom of 2 wonderful girls...5 and 2 years old. I love the Rachael Ray and OAMC concepts so I'm able to spend more time with my family. <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/freezer.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish1.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
