What a great invention the slow cooker is. Set it and forget it. Every busy person has to just love this. Now this recipe has to be my absolute favorite when we are talking pulled pork. Simple and easy.

The first thing I do is to take some onions and quarter them, along with 3 whole cloves of garlic.  I put those in the bottom of the Crock pot. The pork shoulder or butt, as it’s commonly known as, I chose the bone- in for more flavor, but the boneless will work fine too. I take a knife and score the top. Then I season really well with Kosher salt all over the top. I set the pork butt on top of the onions (fat side up). To the top of the pork I smear on some dark brown sugar, and add 1 whole can of Chipotle in Adobo. I leave the Chipotle peppers whole and just spread them out with the sauce all over the top of the pork. Next I add the cola and low sodium chicken broth, allowing the liquids to just drizzle down from all over the top of the pork, until they settle at the bottom. I set the slow cooker for 10 hours on high, place the lid on and let it do its thing.

Eight hour into the cooking I flip the pork over and let it continue cooking. Be careful here because the bottom part of the pork is really tender from sitting in the juices. When you go to turn it, use two sets of tongs to make it easier,

After the timer goes off and the pork is fully cooked and falling apart, remove it carefully. Place it onto a plastic cutting board and shred away. I use to forks for this task. Place all the pork back into the pot with all its cooking liquid, cooked onions, and garlic. This is when I add my favorite barbecue sauce in. If you have homemade sauce, great, if not, your favorite store bought is just fine. Toss the barbecue sauce through really well so that it coats all the pork and you are done. Serve it on your whatever type of bun you like, maybe with some pickles or slaw. This is when sweet meets heat, and it’s going to be a roller coaster for your taste buds for sure.

    I usually use root beer to give it a sweeter flavour along with BBQ sauce. When I tried it with Cola the flavour was sharper. I loved it.
