“As a Washington State transplant, I have wowed a lot of Texans with my pulled pork. It is a basic slow cooker method, but it tastes like it has been slow smoke'n in a pit for days. Top it with some slaw on a bun and you have got yourself some mighty fine BBQ. If you're not a fan of sweet honey BBQ sauce, go ahead and cut back the honey and brown sugar. I changed the amounts after reading my first review, as this was first posted straight from my head and confirms my faulty memory. But I like it a little sweeter to counter the heat from the chipotle.”
