My mom always made this barbecue. She got the directions from her mom. It is a very good and easy to make. Good old Southern style.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This pork roast is so good and tender. What really makes this pork roast recipe different is the homemade sauce. It's tangy and sweet with a little bit of spice. The meat soaks up all the sauce after being cut up and infuses the flavor. This was great on a bun with a side of coleslaw, but the meat is so good it can be eaten without a bun. We used the traditional method and this pulled pork was perfect!
