This recipe was inspired by one created by Lee and Jack Manfred, a father-son cooking team from Vienna, VA. Its tender meat and flavorful, crispy edges has made it their legendary tailgate dish.

Lol. I just wasn't willing to waste time and money to use this recipe,(I have neither to spare). I was pretty sure it wouldnt be what I wanted. Thanks for the review. I will, however, try it if I am able to do so one day. Just to give it a shot.

After reading the other review, I decided to make some changes. I did use the rub which was very good. I seared all sides of the roast and put it into a slow cooker until it had an internal temp of 170 degrees. It was tender and moist.

Oh my goodness! I made this without realizing no one had tested it. It's the worst recipe I've ever tried for pulled pork. Took 5 hours at higher temps than stated to get it to break down, was way short on salt, and dry, dry, dry. Braise pork. There are lots of liquids that don't add calories, This recipe is a terrible way to try to slow-cook pork!
