Servings: 8 servings
- 3 lbs. pork butt also called pork shoulder
- 12 oz. Dr. Pepper soda not diet
- 1 medium onion cut in quarters
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
Place the chopped onion on the bottom of the crockpot. Put the pork butt on top.
In small mixing bowl combine paprika, garlic powder, garlic, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
Rub the pork with paprika mixture.
Pour the Dr. Pepper over the pork and cook on high 5 hours or on low 7-8 hours.
Remove pork and put on large plate. Drain the juices from the crockpot, saving them for later. Using two forks, shred the pork and place back in the crockpot.
Pour barbeque sauce on top of shredded pork with 1 cup of juice. Stir to cover shredded pork. (Add more juices or more BBQ sauce if it looks too dry for how you like your pulled pork.)
Leave in crockpot for 20 minutes to heat through.
Serve on rolls.
