    We LOVE this recipe! Absolutely delicious!!! My boyfriend doesn't like BBQ sauce, so I put a portion of the pulled pork aside for him before I mix in the sauce. It's so flavorful that it doesn't even require BBQ! He asks for this almost every week.

    LOVED THIS PULLED PORK! I tried it just on a whim and the whole family enjoyed it. Even with out the BBQ sauce the pork was good and it had great seasoning to it. This recipe has become a family favorite. I did use beef broth instead of water.

    This has become my go-to for pork shoulder. I genuinely need to increase the amount of rub spices by about 1/3, and usually add red pepper as well as black.

    faily good tadying. added a bit of extra sauce to make it a bit more "sloppy" and moist. easy to make. would make again. chancged up the spice mix a bit by adding a bit of mustard powder, cayenne, chilli powder, and a touch of cinnamon.

    I Used my instant pot to make this simple receipe with little changes. I used beef broth instead of water, and mixed in 1 pouch of Mcormicks pull pork rub to all the dry ingredients. I made a 5 lbs. but didn't use all rub. Also added little BBQ sauce to the beef broth. It came out amazingly yummy. Easy fall apart pull pork. after cooking- Added baby sugar rays BBQ sauce to make sandwiches. Family love it.

    Delish-used Kraft honey BBQ sauce and put in broiler for about 5 mins after instant pot, added a little more salt and pepper. Family loved it! Thank you!

    Pretty decent recipe. One must be a fan of smoked paprika, however. There is an abundance of paprika, so much that it may be overpowering for an untrained palate. I suggest 1 1/2, or even 1 1/4 tablespoons, rather than the 2 called for.

    This was amazing! The pork was literally falling apart as I took it out of the Instant Pot and the spices were a very nice touch.
