BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich...

I love a good crock pot recipe!  This recipe is from My Kitchen Cafe and it was delish.  I have never used liquid smoke before and it really made a difference!!!

3 to 4 pounds boneless pork shoulder (I used boneless pork loin!)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
1 tablespoon hickory flavored liquid smoke (found by the bbq sauces)
2 cups barbecue sauce
Rinse the pork shoulder and pat dry. Rub salt and pepper over the pork and place in a slow cooker. Add water and liquid smoke. Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours, until the pork is very tender.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and discard the remaining liquid. Shred the pork using a couple of forks. Place the meat back in the slow cooker along with the barbecue sauce and continue to cook for another 20-30 minutes until the pork is hot again. Serve on buns with extra barbecue sauce.
