Slow Cooker BBQ Pork

Slow-Cooker BBQ Pork
approx. 6 servings
print recipe

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.
