  1. Yum! Quickly prepped this last night. I put it in the crockpot this morning on my way out the door for 9 hours on low, then it switched to a warm setting. I returned to the house smelling delicious. I made the raspberry sauce to go with this (also great!) but this pork was so good on its own, it really didn’t need the sauce. I would probably just serve the sauce on the side next time… sorta like holiday cranberry sauce. (Or better yet, save the sauce for paleo pancakes!) Great recipe – thanks!!

  2. Since you are an expert in all things crockpot, and you have so many-I need a new one. Mine is too teeny. Do you have a recommendation?

  3. I bought your cook book recently and am working my way through it. So far I am loving everything I make but the flavors of this dish are one of a kind. It was eaten too fast to take pictures. My only regret is that I only had a 3lb roast. Luckily I cooked it and shredded it so I got to pull off more than a fair share of the bark :)

    Anyways, thank you. Not just for the recipe, but for everything including being so relatable.

  4. I made this on Sunday. Decided I had to try the recipe after listening to the webcast of Dr. Lo show that you were in where everyone was raving about it! It definitely lives up to the talk. So good…filing this in favorite recipes. Thanks much!

  5. I made this today and it was a huge hit! I didn’t have sweet paprika so I used the regular stuff and subbed amaretto for the brandy. The house smells like maple bacon! Love this.

  6. Didn’t have brandy or a pork shoulder so, I used this rub on a pork loin. Put in crockpot on a bed of sliced apples and added 1/4 cup fresh apple cider. Cooked all day on low. Came home to a house that smelled AMAZING! Shredded it up with the cooked apples…. delicious!
    Thank you for all you do!

  7. This is far and away the best pulled pork I have ever eaten! I wasn’t crazy about the raspberry BBQ sauce, i found it a little too sweet, but the pork is so good on it’s own it doesn’t need sauce.

  8. Made this yesterday and had the in-laws over. It was a hit!!! The only thing I changed was I took the seeds out of the jalapeno because I’m a wimp. LOL It was sooooo good. Thank you for sharing!!!!

  9. I have made your sweet pulled pork several times. Luv it!! Had never made pulled pork before, and it is so delish and easy. Thank you.

  10. Made this yesterday…LOVED it! My five year old (who hasn't been the most cooperative since I've been converting to paleo) gave me a high five and said she loved it! (Even without the sauce which I didn't have time to make) Will definitely make it again!

  11. I submitted this to the website who does it, if you have any problems on the bottom of the print window click on support and it will email them to fix it

  12. AACK!!! Can't print out this beauty and add it to all of your other delicious recipes! When I click the print icon, it just shows your introductory paragraph.


  13. Made this meal tonight. It was by far one of the best meals in a long time. Will definetly make again. -Mike & Melissa
