Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches

Summertime means BBQ! Having grown up in Texas, BBQ was a staple in the summer. We add Cole slaw for a twist to an old favorite.

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches

1 Pork Roast (whatever is on sale...bone in or boneless and big enough for your family)
garlic salt, salt and pepper
1 bottle of your favorite prepared BBQ sauce
1 can of Coke or Dr. Pepper
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp prepared mustard
Cole Slaw (optional)

Season the roast with a little bit of garlic salt, salt and pepper. Put it in the crock pot. Add 1 can of Coke or Dr. Pepper with enough water to come about 1/2 way up the roast. Cover and simmer for 4-6 hrs on high or 6-8 hrs on low. When the meat is tender pull it out onto a cutting board. Pour out the juices into a large measuring cup. Into the crock pot, add the bottle of BBQ sauce, brown sugar and mustard. Skim off the drained juices and add to the BBQ sauce mixture until it is your desired consistancy (you may not need all of it depending on how much drippings you have). Stir to combine. Shred the pork and add to the BBQ sauce. Heat through. Serve on rolls. We like to top ours with Cole Slaw (I cheat and get 1 lg container of Cole slaw from KFC) it adds a nice cool crunch to go with the tender, flavorful pork. Yesterday at Costco we found a bottle of Famous Dave's (our favorite BBQ restaurant...try the bread pudding it is amazing!) sweet and spicy pickles and those are really good on it as well.
