There must be hundreds of Slow-Cooker BBQ Pork recipes out there, but I like this one because it really is easy, excellent big flavor, and can be made ahead. I have a recipe that I use in the winter that cooks for 7 hours in the oven and has to be basted every 30 minutes. I only make that when the snow is so deep I can't get out the door. I don't mind the slow-cooker on for 7 hours but I don't want the oven on that long in the spring and summer.
Slow-Cooker BBQ Pork
approx. 6 servings
1 (3-4 pound) pork shoulder roast
1 (18-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce, I like Sticky Fingers Memphis Original
1 (12-ounce) can cola soft drink, Dr. Pepper is a good choice
Place pork roast in a 6 quart slow-cooker; pour barbecue sauce and cola over the roast. Cover and cook on HIGH 6 to 7 hours or until meat is tender and shreds easily
To reduce fat, prepare a day ahead. Cool the barbecue, and refrigerate overnight. Remove and discard any solidified fat before reheating.
Serve on buns, with slaw or over hot toasted cornbread.
This may be cooked in a heavy Dutch oven covered with 2 layers of foil and the lid. Bake tightly covered, at 325 degrees for 3 1/2 hours, or until tender.
