Super easy--I love serving this sandwiched between warm Texas toast with tater tots and my yummy sour cream ranch dip!! So much left over, great to pack and freeze for later.

I have made this several times. It's sooo easy and the flavor depends on what your favorite sauce is, naturaly. I have one cooking now and am using a vinegar and pepper sauce, similar to eastern NC style. Seems to cut the fat better, in my humble opinion. Great to make when the "butts" are on sale and you want good que. Many thanks for posting.

Thanks, Hottopot. This was very good. Had no sauce so made Finger Lickin Good BBQ Sauce. Recipe #19023 in the pot & put the 3 lb shoulder roast in. Cooked on High for about 5 hours then on low about 3. Removed the bone and the fat and put the meat back in the sauce to reheat. Served on buns. Will make again.

This was a huge hit in my house. It was very simple to make, I put it in the crockpot before work, came home shredded in put it back in while I made side dishes. My oldest DD has been eating it for breakfast and snacks since I made this. I will be doing this again. Thanks for posting.
