Pulled pork can feed a nice big crowd! If you use a pork shoulder or butt roast you can feed your crowd very inexpensively.  I love how pulled pork can be eaten on a bun, on lettuce or just on your plate beside your salad!

I have a habit of cooking the pork roast overnight. The delectable aroma that you smell, wakes you up with such a hunger. I usually go down at about 6 a,m, and start pulling the pork apart just so I can sample some of the oh so tender pork that I’ve been smelling.

If you don’t like the sweetness of Apple Maple BBQ Sauce then, you could also try my Simple BBQ Sauce if you’d prefer.
