since i was cooking only for him, i cut about 1.5lb off the 5lb pork butt and froze the rest for next time. i forgot my mom was had my crock pot so i used a large pot instead. i cut up some onion rings and layered the bottom of the pot - roast on top. i also made a few slits in the meat and inserted garlic cloves. i used 1/4 starbucks americano, 1/4 beef broth, 1 tsp liquid smoke, and 1/2 jack daniels honey bbq sauce. after 3 hours on low heat, i removed it from the pot and wrapped it in tin foil for an hour. i put the juices and onions from the pot in a separate container. i shredded the meat and put it back in the pot, added back just enough juices to moist the meat and some more jd bbq. i heated that up for 5 minutes. i took the top half of a kaiser roll and dipped it in the juices i separated. next i piled on the pork, some onions and a large glob of cole slaw. my boyfriend took one bite and was in love! this was an easy dish. next time i will cook the rest of the roast and freeze the leftover meat in portions.
