  1. The shredded pork turned out great, or so says my husband. I don’t eat pork, or beef for that matter. I had 3lbs of pork so I cut the spices by half, but otherwise followed your directions, pressure cooking for 40 mins and letting it depressurize for 20 minutes or so. I did throw in a hot pepper from my garden that had been languishing on my counter, and I had a different brand of BBQ on hand so that’s what I used. We do like KC, so I’ll have to pick some up the next time. I’ll definitely make this again. Thanks for your help

  2. Can this be made in a 6 at Instapot? I jumped on the bandwagon but I’ve yet to use the thing. I bought a 3lb pork roast and I’m hoping to use your recipe and my Instapot. What do you think? Advice?

    1. Michael Hultquist - Chili Pepper Madness

      Absolutely, yes. You can use this exact recipe on the slow cooker setting, or for pressure cooking, you can cube up the meat and pressure cook 40 minutes or so. Let me know how it turns out for you.
