Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

As we were walking through the state fair I kept smelling all sorts of bbq pulled pork sandwiches. Since I'm a diabetic, I knew that if I ate one at the fair it would probably be the end of me as they're loaded with sugar.

The next day I decided to make my own version of pulled pork sandwiches, but a diabetic friendly version.

The nice thing about this recipe is that you can have it both ways, diabetic or just plain old pulled pork sandwiches.
