Wade's critique: This recipe was a very easy but delicious and it didn't take long at all to prep. it but it takes some time for it to cook. This easily gets a: B+
Mom's critique: Very easy prep. The end result was good, but I would definitely go the extra mile and get the sauce she recommends. Our sauce was a bit bland (Walmart brand Honey Bbq sauce). I am also going to use the pickles and coleslaw next time to see how it affects the final product. Final grade: B (but will regrade this one once I try it with a new sauce)
BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
3 lb. boneless pork shoulder
Smoked paprika or liquid smoke
1-1 1/2 bottles BBQ Sauce
About 12 high-quality rolls
Thick-cut dill pickle slices
Rinse pork roast well in cold water and trim of excess fat. This is important because sometimes, boneless pork shoulder (and bone-in pork shoulder, for that matter) can take on kind of an icky fishy odor and a lot of that smell is in the juices and the fat. Pat dry. Sprinkle roast with seasonings and place in your slow cooker. Add about 1/2 inch of water and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
When the roast has cooked, drain liquid and then return to the slow cooker and shred. Pour enough sauce over the meat so it's well-incorporated but not soupy. Return the lid to the crockpot and heat through.
When ready to serve, slice rolls and add meat. Top with coleslaw and a few slices of dill pickle.
