Amazing Crockpot Pulled Pork

Lori Harbin-Combs


This is my crowd pleaser pulled pork! Couldn't be easier but folks rave about it. It is inexpensive and doesn't heat up the kitchen in the Summer. Also wonderful for working moms. Can be made the day before, mix with barbecue sauce and reheat the next day. Potlucks, you bet!
