bone-in pork shoulder
12 oz can (or 1 1/2 c)
Dr Pepper soda (or root beer)
BBQ sauce of choice
Rub seasoned salt over the entire pork shoulder.
Place the pork into the Crock Pot and then add the soda.
Place the lid on the Crock Pot and cook on high for 5 hours or on low for 8 hours.
Remove the pork to a pan and use two forks to shred the meat; discard the bone or any really fatty pieces.
Remove all but 1 1/2 cups of the juices in the Crock Pot and stir in the shredded pork.
Add the barbeque sauce and stir. Serve right away or cook on low for an additional hour.
*This is assuming you start with a 4 pound bone-in shoulder. Once it's cooked, shredded (and bone removed), you'll have about 2 - 2 1/2 pounds of pork.
