Course Main Course


  • 1 4-5 lb bone-in pork shoulder
  • seasoned salt
  • 1 12 oz can (or 1 ½ 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 ½ 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 ½ pounds of pork.
