    I made this a little while ago and am just getting around to commenting.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This was seriously so good. I made it the day my roommate and I did our Christmas baking, and it was a real treat to have something so delicious to eat when we were done. It was an ever bigger treat because it was so easy - after 12 hours of baking, you really don't want to cook anymore, so it was great just being able to shred the meat and slap it on a bun. Mmmm.

    This is fabulous, and a crowd pleaser it is! I did cook it in the oven, however. I watched it closely, started with high oven temperature, then turned the oven down to a low temperature. I basted it every hour. It is absolutely one of the best recipes ever. Thank you kindly for sharing.

    This freezes well. Since I purposely overcooked, Marilyn and I are having this tonight from the freezer. And there is enough to share with my son his family. Actually I still have another one in the freezer. Thanks!

    I make vinegar based cole slaw for tomato based bbq park sandwiches. I like really tart cider vinegar with a generous dose of celery seed and dry mustard and brown sugar dressing. But when I have the Carolina vinegar based pulled pork that is when I pull out the creamy based coleslaw that is more sweet than tart. Very little celery seed and lots of carrot in this type of coleslaw. Each style balances the rich pork.

    Just pulled this from the OVEN. will chill it and serve it for a crowd tomorrow as a roast. I actually made four. Two picnics and two butts. I cooked it 6 1/2 hours in a 300 degreee oven, basting every hour and turning the roasts after three hours. I tented the roasts after three hours. This stuff is dynamite good, but don't limitit to a crock pot. This is different from Memphis barbeque, which is what we have in this area. I'm pairing it with my Show-off two-color duchesse potatoes, but actually, we are going to served them in a pan and not do them duchesse style. Just swirl the ssweet potatoes into the white mashed. Some crispy cole slaw and yeast rolls, and who knows what else. This is a great recipe.

    Oh I LOVE bbq pork, so this one is going on the grocery list - it's exactly what I was looking for to serve a bunch of family over the July 4th holiday. I agree, the coleslaw is a MUST with this - I love it piled on bbq'd pork! Thanks!

    Question: What kind of coleslaw do you make with this dish - mayonaise or oil & vinegar based?

    Hmmm, I am going to have to try this. I am a northern cook but I have seen this kind of dish on Food TV and have always wanted to try some. I love that it is in a crock-pot. It sounds like a perfect winter supper. Thanks!

    This is a great recipe. We also must have a coleslaw for the sandwiches. It makes you feel virtuous for eating a vegetable while "pigging" out. I'm rewriting the grocery list to get the ingredients.

    I love this recipe. I actually bought four bone-in Pork butts yesterday to feed a crowd at a family gathering Sunday. I'm going to use this recipe, but of course it won't be ina crock pot. It will be in a smoker and finished in the oven, simply because I 'm not going to stay up and nurse it the 14-16 hours it will take in a slow temp smoker. And the cole slaw, not an option. A must. My crispy Cole Slaw (posed) is designed for this dish, not a bunch of mayo, but complimentary vinegar and mustard flavor. Thanks for posting.
