Pulled Pork (And Sandwiches)

It’s officially summertime.  Even though we have air conditioning, I still like to keep the oven off as much as I can. This is a very versatile recipe, you can either used the pulled pork with tacos, burritos, in sandwiches, just use your imagination and I’m sure you’ll think of lots of ways your family would enjoy it.  And you can always change the seasonings according to what you’ll be making with it, of course.
