Barbecue Pulled Pork

Recipe posted at mom's request. I started off with a recipe on the food network, but I changed it somewhat.

BBQ Pulled Pork Shoulder


One Pork Shoulder, 4-6 pounds

½ - one red onion

Cloves of garlic, 3-4, as desired

Ground cloves

BBQ or pork seasoning

Liquid Smoke

Barbecue sauce


Sandwich Rolls


Rub pork shoulder with the seasoning liberally.

Place it in your crock pot and sprinkle the top with ground cloves

Quarter the onion, separate the slices, and throw them in there. Add the garlic cloves, whole or crushed.

Pour some liquid smoke into there. You can add more later if you want it to taste smokier.

Fill about ½ up with water.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until it starts to fall apart.

Remove from pot. Pour off most of the excess water, leaving only about a cup or so. Remove the onions and garlic (if you left the cloves whole).

Using two forks, pull the pork apart. Place back in pot

Add a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce . cook on low for another hour or so, until the liquid has reduced enough. You want the mixture to be wet, but not watery, and you want it to be hot all the way through.
