Lillian's notes for this recipe:
This has now become my new 'go to' pulled pork recipe! Its got a perfect sweet and smokey flavor! This sandwich even tastes great cold! Thats the way I ate it for lunch today! I found this recipe on the internet, but I'm posting it with my changes. The photo is my own.

Place half of the sliced onions and all the garlic, on the bottom of the crockpot.
Season the pork on all sides with salt and pepper. Place it ontop of the onions in the crockpot.
Add the other half of the sliced onions ontop of the pork.
Mix the ginger ale and liquid smoke together and pour over the pork. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours. Then turn the pork over and cook on high for another 3 hours.
Then remove pork and drain off all the liquid from the crockpot, leaving the onions. Shred the pork and remove all the lumps of fat from the meat.
Return the shredded pork to the crockpot with the onions. Stir in 18 ozs. of barbecue sauce. Cook on high for 1 - 2 more hours.
Serve warm on kaiser rolls.
This pulled pork freezes very well and this recipe easily doubles!
