Not counting the seasonings, there are only 3 amazing ingredients in this "off the cuff" recipe I made one day. Now it's the only way I cook pulled pork. You can use any kind of beer or ale and any brand of barbecue sauce. I use Shiner Bock beer and Sweet Baby Ray's regular barbecue sauce.

    Seriously, do this about 10 p.m. and go to bed. About 9 a.m. the next morning remove the pork and shred with a fork; discard the juice/beer and the remains of the pork butt. Rinse out crock pot with warm water and place shredded pork back in; pour the barbecue sauce over top and mix. Cover and turn to low and heat for about 2 additional hours.
