  • 3 pound pork shoulder or 3 pound beef roast
  • 2 onion; quartered
  • 4 clove garlic; crushed
  • 2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 2 cup Water (approximate)
  • 1 for serving
  • 1 jar barbecue sauce
  • 6-8 hamburger buns
  • 1 coleslaw (optional)



Step 1

Prepare the dry rub: combine kosher salt, fresh ground pepper and cayenne
pepper. Coat the entire meat with this rub. You can't over coat your meat
at this point.

Place the quartered onions and crushed garlic into the slow cooker. Add the
meat. Slowly pour in the water until the meat is about 2/3 covered, avoid
pouring it over the meat so you don't remove the rub. Add the liquid smoke.

Cook on low for 9-10 hours.

Remove the meat from the crock. It's going to be falling apart delicious.
Use a slotted spoon to scoop out any meat that may have fallen off. If
you've used a piece of meat with the bone in, remove the bone. Shred the
meat with forks.

You can add the barbecue sauce to the meat or let each person add their own
sauce to their portion as desired. Place the shredded meat on hamburger
buns. Serve with barbecue sauce and coleslaw.
