Ginger Ale Pulled Pork Loin BBQ

From the Scott

  1. Get a pork loin--enough to fill your slow cooker
  2. Cut the loin into 4 to 6 inch long chunks--depending on the size of the slow cooker. For the most part, longer chunks are better than shorter ones
  3. Quarter a large onion. If using a big slow cooker and lots of pork, you might want to use 2 medium-sized onions
  4. Put the meat and the onions into the slow cooker
  5. Pour enough ginger ale into the slow cooker to cover the meat.
  6. Drink any remaining ginger ale to remind yourself that you never really liked how it tasted
  7. Put the slow cooker on high and let it go until the meat is falling-apart tender (poke it at 4 hours or so to check)
  8. Have a nice tasty cold beverage while waiting for the slow cooker to do its thing
  9. You may have to repeat step 8 if you are a fast drinker
  10. When meat it done, dump ginger ale and onion quarters into the garbage disposal and grind them into little bits
  11. With a fork, or your hands if you are tough, pull the pork apart into nice bite-sized chunks
  12. Dump all the meat into a bowl and mix with your favorite BBQ sauce. Use as much or as little BBQ sauce as you see fit
  13. If the BBQ will be sitting out for a while (like at a potluck), put it in the slow cooker at low temperature to keep it warm. Stir occasionally to keep the stuff on the edges from drying out
  14. Provide hamburger buns or rolls or just plain ole bread because this stuff is great as a sandwich. Note though, it is equally nice to nibble on it with your fingers, or a fork, as well
  15. Have extra BBQ sauce laying out. Some people like their sandwiches like their women -- really sloppy
  16. Don't tell your friends how easy it is to make--let them think you worked hard on it all day
  17. It freezes well, so make plenty
