Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mom's Homemade Barbecue Sauce

I love a good pulled pork sandwich with barbecue sauce.  I feel certain that this recipe has it all...it tastes great and cooking it in a crockpot gives you time to do other things while it cooks.

When I was a kid growing up in Chicago, my mom used to make the absolute best barbecue ribs in the world, or at least that's how I remember it. As an adult, I have made mom's ribs with her homemade barbecue sauce on several different occasions and always with rave reviews from those participating in the meal. Traditionally, the way with our family is to make slight adjustments to our recipes throughout the years according to taste, and I have carried on the tradition of always trying to make it a little better each time I cook it. Nonetheless, I am happy to say, it is still mom's recipe for the most part, and I still believe her sauce to be the best ever!

As a fan of pulled pork sandwiches, I have tried a wide variety of them when travelling down south and here in Chicago, usually finding some great ones and some additional ideas for this sandwich along the way. Now I have decided to take my memories of great barbecue ribs as a child and apply mom's homemade barbecue sauce, with my slight adaptations over the years, to pulled pork sandwiches! Along with that, I want to add cole slaw, banana pepper rings, and bread and butter pickles for add ons. Here's the recipe I have come up with from all the different recipes I have tasted or seen over the years, including mom's homemade barbecue sauce.
