    The flavor was good, but I followed the recipe exactly and the pork did not turn out very tender. It wasn’t “shreddable” with two forks.. I may have cooked it too long, but like I said I follow the directions. Next time I will choose a different recipe.

    delicious! i cut the injection liquid recipe in half and still had a lot left over after injecting my 8 lb pork shoulder butt... used it for a marinade for some other meat!

    It turned out great! I ended up not having apple cider vinegar so I used red wine vinegar and instead of adding garlic and onion I added garlic and onion powder for my picky boyfriend and it turned out fantastic! Also I used sweet chipotle by sweet baby rays bbq sauce!

    I didn’t have Worcestershire sauce and this still turned out amazing! We gobbled it up! This was a hit with my family and we will be making it many times again. Thank you!

    We made this on a cold winter day and it was amazing! Perfect amount of flavor and tenderness! It was light on the bbq flavor but the brown sugar was perfect! Will def make again

    Delicious! Usually only takes about 4 1/2 hours then shred, then I let sit for the last half hour on high, soaking up the sauce.

    Turned out really good! I shredded the pork and put it back in the slow cooker another hour to soak up extra flavour. Served on buns with coleslaw and pickles.

    Excellent. The best meal I’ve made in weeks and the easiest. The only chopping involved was one onion

    I used Dijon Mustard and about half as much pork (without reducing the recipe) and it turned out great!

    Yummo. I thought there was too much chili powder but after eating it on fresh bread rolls with coleslaw I was mistaken. Delicious.
