This is outstanding. Have made it twice for large family gatherings, never one bite left, even though I MORE than double or triple the recipe. Easy to adapt to your liking. I actully used Costco brand pulled pork (no sauce on it). It's sold in a 2 lb package. I heated it in the microwave and degreased with paper towels. Added it with the rest, not later. Also used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins. I add bell pepper with the onion, way more garlic and vegetables, as well as some thin BBQ sauce. The second time I made it a week ahead and froze it in gallon gallon ziplock bags. Thawed overnight and put in crockpot the day I served it. Wonderful recipe! Thanks!
