I made this for a Sunday afternoon get together and it was a major hit. I drained off most of the brining liquid and added a beer as some reviews mentioned. I also took the time to sear the outside of the roast with salt, pepper, and paprika before putting it into the crockpot. This really helped add some flavor and some texture to the meat. I added a tablespoon of Old Bay, a few cloves of diced garlic and an extra onion to the crock pot as well.
One review mentioned boiling the remaining sauce down and adding a little brown sugar, which was a wonderful idea. It turned into a delicious homemade barbeque sauce with some extra tweaking.
Finally, I made some cole slaw from the "Awesome Cole Slaw" recipe found on this site and served it with the meat on buns. It was seriously awesome.
