This is a great recipe tutorial for how to make bbq pulled pork. I’ve made pulled pork in the crock pot or slow cooker before but it just didn’t turn out that great, it was a little stringy. But this is the best pulled pork I’ve made. It starts with a dry rub to add in lots of flavor. Then it's smoked to perfection. We love this pulled pork meat on sandwiches or just by itself. This is a recipe you need to try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
