Slow Cooker (Crock-Pot) Shredded BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Pork

1 large pork roast
1/2 - 1 cup water (depending on how big your roast is)
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tbsp garlic flakes (or 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced)
1 tbsp dried onion
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

2 bottles BBQ sauce, garlic powder, black pepper and hamburger buns

Place pork roast and remaining ingredients into slow cooker. Cook on low for 12 hours; turning roast over after 6-8 hours. Allow to cool and shred; removing fat as you go. Roast can be placed in refrigerator overnight and shredded the next day. Place shredded pork back into clean slow cooker. Pour in enough bbq sauce to coat the meat. Sprinkle in a pinch of hot pepper flakes, a 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and fresh pepper.
Set slow cooker to low; serve when ready to eat. Serve on toasted hamburger buns.

*I like to use half hickory smoke and half spicy honey bbq sauce.
