Everybody has a favorite type of barbecue. Eastern NC BBQ has a pure salty savoryness without any ketchup base. The following recipe is awesome served on large sandwich buns with potato chips. And it's easy--a great recipe to set in the crock pot and come home to an almost-finished meal. For cost savings, I often buy a large pork roast when it goes on sale and just cut in in two halves; use one for the recipe. Pick a nice lean cut; not a Boston butt. Even better as a leftover!!

  1. Place roast in crock pot. Brush with BBQ sauce.
  2. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours.
  3. Just before serving, remove any fat then use a fork to shred all the meat.
  4. Stir together all remaining ingredients (I just mix in my measuring cup), and pour over pork. Toss pork in sauce.
  5. Scoop onto sandwich with slotted spoon (to avoid soggy buns).
