- 1 large pork shoulder or butt (bone in)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 onions, sliced
- 4 cloves of garlic, smashed
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 bottles of your favorite bbq sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original)
In a heavy stock pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Trim off some of the visible fat, but not all. Lightly brown all non-fat sides of the meat in the heated oil.
Place onions, garlic and water in the bottom of crockpot. Transfer browned pork to crockpot and place on top of onions and garlic. Cover pork and onions with bbq sauce. Cover crockpot and cook for 8 hours on low.
When finished cooking, remove pork from crockpot and shred with two forks. Combine shredded pork with remaining bbq and onion mixture. Serve alone, on hamburger buns or on hard sandwich rolls.
