    This was a hit in our house. I modified the recipe a little by using a compination of water, apple juice, bbq sauce, and liquid smoke in place of just plain water. Within minutes of cooking the whole house was filled with a great smell.  -  28 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was a hit with my family and I will definitely make it again. I did customize it slightly. I didn't have a pork butt roast, but I did have a half dozen very thick pork loin chops from Costco that I used instead. They shredded easily. Also, I fried up some onions on the side to add to the shredded pork. Finally, I added a little bit of Hickory liquid smoke to give it a BBQ like smell / taste.  -  23 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love this recipe! I love cooking with my pressure cooker and am always looking for tasty and quick meals to make. This one is just about the easiest. I used Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce and served it up on bun. I would highly recommend this recipe.  -  16 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
