North Carolina Style Pulled Pork

The first time I made this recipe,
my son-in-law loved it~
He spend some time living in North Carolina.
He has eaten a lot of 'North Carolina Style Pulled Pork'
and said this was a great version of that classic.

This is an easy recipe and
the best part....
it's made in the crock pot.
