Prep time: 6 mins
Cook time: 10 hours
Total time: 10 hours 6 mins
  • 3-1/2 lb. pork butt roast
  • 2 medium onions, peeled and cut into ¾" thick slices
  • 1 T. fine sea salt or 1-1/2 T. coarse sea salt
  • 1-2 T. liquid smoke
  1. Keep onion rings intact in their cut slices. Line the bottom of the crockpot with the cut slices.
  2. Place pork butt roast on top of the onion slices. Score the top of the meat and sprinkle the top only with the salt, then the liquid smoke.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 10-12 hours, until meat is very tender.
  4. Remove meat and onions from the pot. Cool slightly, then shred meat with two forks.
  5. Skim off any fat from the meat juices. Return meat into the juices and mix in. Taste the meat and add more salt if needed. Separate onion rings and place over the top.
