Crock Pot Southern BBQ Pulled Pork

Karen Crossland


I make this about every couple of weeks. My kids love this,and so does my brother, my husband, who is not crazy about BBQ even likes this dish...he can't help it, he is from up north and his family doesn't do BBQ.It has taken me a good 9 years to get him to eat a lot of our southern cuisine,lol
