To make Coca-Cola BBQ Sauce: 
Heat a pot over medium-high heat and add canola oil and minced garlic. Cook and stir until garlic is starts to brown. 
Remove the pan from the heat. Add ketchup, orange juice, Coca-Cola and molasses. 
Mix well. Add in the brown sugar, liquid smoke, garlic salt, and paprika . Whisk to combine. 
For the Pulled Pork:
In a Crock-Pot (slow-cooker), stir together the BBQ sauce and cola. Set the crock-pot onto low. Add Pork. Press down so that the pork is completely covered in the sauce. 
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. *test the pork by using a fork to shred some of the pork, if it shreds easily, it's ready* Once the pork is done, remove it from the crock-pot and shred with a fork.
