    I make this recipe frequently and it makes delicious moist pulled pork and I don't have to tend the smoker for hours. A couple of hints: (1)Use your favorite rib/pork rub to save time. (2) If you are using a bone-in pork shoulder throw the bone in the pot for extra flavor. (3) Optional: After shredding the pork on a baking sheet pour some of the liquid form the pot over the pork and slightly crisp the ends under a broiler.

    1. Add 1/4 cup into the mixture that goes into the Instant Pot. Then the amount you mix in the end is up to you and your personal preference. I think 1/4 cup is good (so you'd need 1/2 cup total). I see the confusion in the recipe, so I will update that now. Thanks!

    1. The photos show the size of the cubed pork in the instant pot. It looks like the chunks are large enough that about 3 chunks cover the bottom of the pot
