I thought this recipe was just so-so. Followed the recipe, except used an anaheim chili instead of fresno. And I cooked it in the crockpot, not sure if that made a difference. The pork was nice and tender and flavorful, but it tasted way too much like allspice and nothing else. I would have liked more layers of spice. Served on buns with Asian Chicken Slaw (minus the chicken), which wasn't a good match. Pretty boring. I've had -and made- much better pulled pork. It was better the next day with cheddar cheese added.

This was a breeze to make and my family loved it. For some reason I neglected to buy green onions so I substituted Vadalia onions in their place. I started the meat on the stove top and then transferred it to the oven. Served it up on soft whole wheat rolls and coleslaw. Perfect

This is a great recipe. I double it typically as the pork butt usually has a lot of fat that is great for the flavor but not for eating necessarily. I also marinate it overnight and then stick it in the crock pot the next day. Also try using Hawaiian bread rolls - really tasty.
