Crock Pot BBQ

Use your favorite barbecue sauce in this crockpot pork roast recipe. This is a basic recipe for pulled pork shoulder using a boneless or bone-in shoulder, but be sure your pork shoulder will fit in the slow cooker and will allow you to put the cover on tightly. I usually purchase several pork butts from the local high school band or sports team when they sell them for fundraising. Not only does it help me prepare a quick meal, it also helps out the program. I just so happened to have the meat in my refrigerator.

pork shoulder, also known as Boston butt, about 4 to 7 pounds, bone-in or boneless
1/4 cup of water
salt and pepper lightly
barbecue sauce

Preparation:Place the meat in the slow cooker with water, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour. Tun to LOW and cook 7 to 9 hours longer, until very tender. Remove roast and discard fat and juices. Chop or shred the pork; return to slow cooker. Mix a little barbecue sauce into the meat for flavor. Cook for about 1 hour longer, until hot. Serve on warm split sandwich buns with coleslaw and extra barbecue sauce on the side.
