Crock Pot Pulled Pork

I found a recipe for pulled pork on and modified it a bit. It came out really well. We had this for dinner last night.

  • 5 lbs pork butt or shoulder
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 and 1/4 cup ginger ale
  • 1/2 bottle of liquid smoke
  • 18 oz of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • Slice one of the onions and place in crock pot.  Put the pork in the crock pot on top of the onion.
  • Slice the other onion and place it on top of the pork.  Pour in the ginger ale and liquid smoke. Cover and cook on LOW for about 9 hours.
  • Remove the meat, strain and save the onions. Discard all of the liquid. Using two forks, shred the meat, discarding any remaining fat or bones.
  • Place the shredded meat back in the crock pot and stir in the barbecue sauce. Cook on HIGH for 30-40 minutes.
  • Serve buns or rolls.
We had a lot of leftover meat, so I'm using some of them for dinner tomorrow. We are going to have build-your-own-burritos with it.
