  2. Cut slits into the entire pork shoulder and stud with cloves of garlic.

  4. Cook pork on low for 8 hours.
  5. While the pork is cooking, make the barbecue sauce.
  6. After 8 hours of cooking, remove the pork from crock pot, and let cool.

The garlic infused, juicy pork shoulder is great on its own, but even better with the barbecue sauce.

    So simple, so moist, so perfect! I made the bbq sauce and loved it’s smoky flavor. I had never considered serving bbq pork with avocado. It was amazing. I will make this again and again.

    Made this this morning on my way out the door – and it was a delicious, delicious dinner! I think I’d add some jalepeno or poblano pepper seeds to add a mild kick, but other than that – it was just wonderful. Also made the bbq sauce and it was an absolute hit.

    will make this again … and it would be something i’d be proud to serve to others, too. Thanks for showing me a way to look great in the kitchen! đŸ˜‰

    I’m not really a fan of pork so I made this not knowing if I’d like it and wow, it’s really good. I think next time I’ll try it with shredded chicken. You must try it with the BBQ sauce recipe they give mmmmm mmmm.
