Ohhhh we love a Pulled Pork in our house and this one has a little hint of Jamaica in it for a little extra zing!  You will probably have a bunch of these ingredients already at home in the pantry and a  heap of these spices in your spice draw and never knew what to use them with.. well here you you… delicious, family favourite pulled pork!  Stick it in a wrap, on a roll, serve with coleslaw or salad or rice… so many options!
