  1. Wow. This is awesome and seems easy enough for me to do it. I love bbq, but I always buy it. Thanks a bunch 🙂

  2. I think I’m going to have to try your BBQ sauce recipe, Shelli! To go with the pork recipe, of course. In fact, since I still haven’t decided on a dish to take to my extended family Christmas party on Saturday, this might just be the ticket. Good…yet little work involved in getting it ready (read…don’t have to peel 500 pounds of potatoes). 🙂

    1. Hi Kristy! That BBQ sauce is good, no doubt. I also just came across this sauce in store: Sweet Baby Ray’s Hickory & Brown Sugar. Talk about delish! And like $3 for a big bottle. Yes, I’m all about as little work as possible. 😀

  3. I’m trying it. Been a crock-pot fan for years. Would appreciate any recommendations you have, Shelli, for any good unique slow-cooker recipe books. I’ve done soups and stews to death. Thanks.

    1. Hi David! I hope you like it. Let me know how it turns out. The best little recipe book I ever got came with my Crock-Pot when I bought it. Crock-Pot (the company) also has recipe books that they sell in bookstores; those are great because they usually have a picture with every recipe. I tend to tinker & make up my own recipes; there are a few others up on my blog. 🙂
