Not only quick and easy it made for great pulled pork which served on fresh crusty rolls made for a delicious evening meal. I noted your suggestion and added Worcestershire sauce as well. All told I also see this as a great recipe for weekend gatherings!

I wanted a bit more flavour so with the BBQ sauce I added Worcestershire and liquid smoke.
