Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Not all of us can own a smoker, if you're like me it's because your back patio is the size of a postage stamp.  There's not much room on our back patio for our barbeque, don't even get me started on our patio furniture. Anyways, I digress, for those of us who don't have a smoker or room to get one we have to make do with what we have.  My husband used a skillet and a slow cooker and it turned out wonderfully, my kids ate seconds.

 Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Recipe from

5 lbs pork shoulder
1 c. BBQ sauce
2 c. beef stock
1 tbsp. table salt (or to taste)
2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1 tsp. granulated garlic (or to taste)
1 tsp. onion powder (or to taste)
1 tbsp. smoked paprika

Combine dry ingredients. Rub dry ingredients on pork, covering completely. Store overnight in tin foil.
On a grill or on griddle which has a grilling side, sear meat thoroughly creating grill marks.
In a Crock-pot, combine Beef stock and BBQ sauce. Add pork shoulder to the slow cooker.
Set Crock-pot on high for 8 hours turning over half way through. Remove from Crock-pot and mash with hands adding 1 1/2 cups liquid from the crock.
