1tablespoonhickory liquid smoke
1bottleyour favorite BBQ sauce
Rinse the pork shoulder and pat dry. Rub pork rub all over pork shoulder.
Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper (optional) and place in the slow cooker.
Pour in can of coke and liquid smoke all around the sides of the pork.
Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork is very tender.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and discard the remaining liquid.
Remove the bone and shred the pork using a couple of forks, removing any excess fat.
Place the shredded meat onto a hamburger bun and add the desired amount of sauce per sandwich.
Optional: you can place the meat back in the slow cooker along with the bottle of barbecue sauce and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes until the pork is hot again. You can also leave your shredded pork in your slow cooker and leave it on the keep warm setting until ready to eat.
Don't use more liquid smoke than I listed above. It can be overpowering if you use too much.
Most dark sodas will work for this recipe: Root beer and Coca-Cola are good alternatives.
