BBQ Pulled Pork

Yet another weekend was spent shopping for furniture to no avail. Luke and I went to the exchange and found a bedroom set we loved, but it wasn't in stock and we were going to be charged an additional $1/pound to special order it. Not happening. We're almost to the point of resigning that anyone who visits us will be accommodated on our lovely pilow-top air mattress or college futon. Well, we're not that desperate, but we're really hoping to find something soon. So after a frustrating day, it was nice to come home and smell this in the slow cooker. Since we've been here, we've been eating at home a lot more than we used to, which is great  because it's much cheaper, but it's mostly because neither of us likes the local cuisine. Maybe it'll grow on us eventually, but white rice, macaroni salad, and garlicky meat aren't doing it for me. So this was really easy, and the recipe was given to me by a very sweet and wonderful Navy wife!

2 lb pork shoulder
any meat seasoning you like - I used garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and some salt and pepper
1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce - we love Corky's apple BBQ sauce
1 20-oz bottle Dr. Pepper

Season the pork and place it in the slow cooker. Pour the Dr. Pepper over it, and cook it on low for 8 hours. Drain all of the liquid, and shred the pork. Mix in the bottle of BBQ sauce. Easy!
