  • 4 lb Pork Roast shoulder
  • 1 Tablespoon Liquid Smoke mesquite or hickory
  • ½ cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Hawaiian Salt


  • Add your pork roast to the crockpot, then poke 10-12 holes into the top of the pork roast using a knife. Combine the liquid smoke and water in a bowl or cup, then pour over the pork roast and sprinkle with the Hawaiian salt.
  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 10-12 hours, or until you can easily shred the roast with two forks.
  • Once cooked, remove roast from slow cooker and transfer to a platter or large bowl. Shred, removing any excess fat or gristle, then put the shredded pork back into the slow cooker and let it sit in the juices for 15-20 minutes, or until ready to serve.
  • Serve over rice, in salads, or on sandwiches. Enjoy!
