3. Transfer roast to plate; cool. Boil pot liquid until it has reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes.
4. When roast is cool enough to handle, discard string. Separate meat into chunks, removing as much fat as possible. With hands or fork, shred meat into bite-size pieces. Return pork to Dutch oven, stirring well; heat through. Serve pulled pork on hamburger buns.
