Great make ahead dinner.

"I rubbed the roast, put in fridge over night, then seared in a fry pan to seal in juices. I added one cup broth and several good shakes of my favorite hot sauce to the crock pot before cooking. I then cooled it in the fridge again over night and removed the hard fats then shredded the meat, added the juices from the meat and the BBQ sauce, then reheated in the crock pot. This was FANTASTIC. A great hit at the picnic. Thank you for a great recipie!"

We cooked 1cup Apple cider vinegar with the pork shoulder instead of beef broth at the end. Makes it to salty. Also in the rub 1/2 cup of brown sugar.We used if K.C.Masterpiece original barbecue sauce. Made Cole slaw with hidden valley slaw dressing and homemade flour tortillas. Yummy!!!

I've served this at fundraisers before and it has always been a huge hit. Try it with Jack Daniels whiskey, added half an hour before it's done, it smooths everything out quite a bit.

I use a pork tenderloin because it's more tender than a roast. This is a fav in my house!

Changed it a little. Cooked the pork in the beef broth and BBQ mixture then removed and added a little liquid as needed.

Awesome! Best recipe I've tried on this site! I did add a little apple cider vinegar though

This was really good. However, liquid content was exaggerated.
