BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches


4 lbs boneless pork shoulder or pork loin
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 c. water
1 Tbsp hickory-flavored smoke
2 c. barbecue sauce

1. Rinse the pork shoulder and pat dry. Rub salt and pepper over the pork and place in a slow cooker.

2. Add water and liquid smoke. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork is very tender.

3. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and discard the remaining liquid. Shred the pork using a couple of forks.

4. Place the meat back in the slow cooker along with the barbecue sauce and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes until the pork is hot again. Serve on buns with extra barbecue sauce.
