Shredded Pork Sandwiches

Shredded Pork Sandwiches
contributed by Kirk Shaw, originally from 365 Days of Slow-Cooking by Karen Bellessa Petersen

1 (4-lb) bone-in or boneless pork shoulder roast
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup water
Barbecue sauce to taste
Coleslaw (optional)

Season pork liberally with salt and pepper.  Place pork in slow cooker with water.  Cover and cook on high for 1 hour.  Turn to low, and cook an additional 6-8 hours, until very tender.

Remove roast; discard fat and juices.  Chop or shred the pork; return to slow cooker.  Mix a little barbecue sauce into the meat for flavor.

Cover and cook for about 1 more hour, until meat is heated through.

Serve on warm split sandwich buns with coleslaw on top of meat.
