“Perfect, simple, easy pulled pork barbecue. Found on You can also sub broth, stock, or beer to replace the water that you initially cook the pork in. Note: If you're using a really thick barbecue sauce you may want to add up to 1 1/2 cups of water to thin it out a bit. If the sauce is too thick the pork will come out dry. **Also, hubby & I like lots of bbq sauce so we tend to use more than this recipe calls for... usually around another 9 to 18 ounces!”
