  • 4 lb pork roast (shoulder or butt)
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 c ginger ale
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce (your favorite flavor)
  • BBQ sauce (for serving, optional)
  • hamburger buns


  • Slice onion and place in bottom of the crock pot. (Onion has already been sliced and frozen if you’re following my freezer to slow cooker plan. ) Put in the roast and cover with the other onion . Pour ginger ale over the top.  Cover and cook on low for about 12 hours (for older crocks) or about 8 hours (for newer crocks).
  • Once cooked, remove the meat, straining the onions, but discarding the liquid.  Shred the meat with 2 forks.  Discard any fat, bones or skin.  Most of the fat should have melted away.
  • After it’s nicely shredded, return the meat and onions to the slow cooker and cover it with the BBQ sauce, stirring it in to cover the meat well.  Cook another 4 to 6 hours on low.
  • Serve on hamburger buns.  Leftovers freeze well.
