4poundpork shoulder roast(Boston Butt)
Put the pork roast into the slow cooker with the fatty side up.
Sprinkle the roast liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add just 1/4 cup of water around the roast. Cover and cook for 7 hours.
Remove the roast from the cooker and discard the visible pieces of fat.
Pour the cooking juices into a fat separator cup and set it aside while you pull the pork.
Using two forks, “pull” the pork into shreds.
Return the pulled meat to the cooker along with the de-fatted cooking juices and barbecue sauce. Cook for an additional hour.
Serve on toasted buns.
Note: One side of the roast will have a cap of fat all over it - don't remove that, it gives great flavor to the pork. It also continually bastes the roast as it melts and drips down preventing it from drying out while you cook it.For the barbecue sauce, use whatever recipe or bottled brand you prefer.
