Recipe by Paula T
"My way of making pulled pork is simple: slow cooker, 1 can of beer, a 5 to 6 pound pork butt, seasonings, and a bottle of barbecue sauce.
My beer choice is Shiner Bock®. My seasoning choices are salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. My barbecue sauce choice is Sweet Baby Ray's®.
Just put it in a slow cooker before you go to bed and when you wake up the magic has happened. See for yourself. This recipe is perfect for a party, and you can even prepare 2 and feed around 30 people. Serve on onion or hamburger buns."

I'm so glad that you liked this easy recipe, Nodira M, Laga10 and vlr! I like your ideas about additional seasonings too-thanks for taking the time to rate and review it.
Simply excellent. Never thought I'd be able to make pulled pork at home in a slow cooker! - this is something we normally enjoy eating out. But this time I happened to have some pork shoulder in freezer, it was snowy winter day and comfort food was calling my name. This pulled pork was almost as good as my brother in law's BBQ pork which he makes using outdoor smoker. Well, let me tell you - I was very proud of my pulled pork it was delicious! I didn't have any onion powder so just omitted it, used Kraft's BBQ sauce and added a little of BBQ seasoning. Next time I would probably add some liquid smoke just to add that smokiness to the flavor. Otherwise - thanks to the author for the great recipe and I highly recommend it!
I used Stubbs original bbq sauce and just made a few adjustments to seasoning for a 8lb pork shoulder butt . Completely fell off the bone very tender! My kitchen smelled like marriage proposals in the morning.
This was a very good recipe. Used pork shoulder roast and it was great and easy to shred. Good suggestion on the sauce too. Would make again.
