Remove the cooked meat to a cutting board and with your hands or 2 forks, pull the meat into shreds. Put the shredded meat into a large bowl and add the barbecue sauce. Mix it well so that all the pork is completely covered in sauce. Serve with toasted hamburger buns or French rolls.

Serves 10 to 12

Food For Thought – If you don’t like the back burner idea, preheat the oven to 250F. Follow the directions above, but after the water has reached a boil, cover the pot and put it in the oven for about 6 hours, until tender, then proceed with the rest of the directions.
