Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Just a Few Ingredients! So easy for the slow cooker! Juicy, tender, great taste but not overpowering. Good for a change from typical tomato-based BBQ. EVERYONE in family of 5 wanted it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Juicy, tender and FULL of flavor! So easy and such a hit. There were literally arguments over the left overs! Made cole slaw too with just the Vidalia Onion Dressing (cabbage, carrot and green pepper). Served with potato wedges and Malt Vinegar French Fry Seasoning. Already ordering another bottle to make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pulled Pork Ever! Being from the BBQ Capital of the Midwest, my family is very picky about its BBQ. When I made this pulled pork, they devoured it! The best part is the flavor of the pork is great by itself, or it compliments with many different sauces to please every palate! I had hoped for leftovers, but the boys ate it all! They have already asked me when are you making it again?
