Sweet and Tangy Pulled Pork

Kimi Gaines


This recipe is in the new Taste of Home magazine. I have always made my pulled pork with seasoning and then at the end used my favorite BBQ sauce. This recipe was so different I gave it a try. The aroma filled the house and the end result was tangy & sweet. I think you will enjoy it.
