This is about as easy as it gets and is excellent.

One large pork butt roast
1 1/2 tablespoons Natural Course Sea Salt
1 tablespoon liquid smoke

Stab pork all over with a carving fork.
Put the pork roast into a slow cooker (crock pot).
Rub salt and liquid smoke over roast

Cook on Low for about 20 hours.

Everybody loves this, it feeds a lot of people and is really easy to make.
You can make sandwiches and top them with bbq sauce or just eat it as it.

I do this and freeze it for quick dinners later as well.

Seems like an easy way to feed a bunch of people when you are too busy to pay attention to a lot of cooking.

It's perfect for a Sunday dinner with the whole family and friends over. The local grocery store does a two for one on pork butts every so often as well which makes it an inexpensive meal to serve a lot of people. It goes equally well with some mashed potatoes as it does as sandwiches and bbq sauce. I made it yesterday which is why I thought to share it here. It's probably really done at about the 15 hour mark but I just leave it in the crock pot until whenever I get around to pulling it out around dinner time. So you can definitely ignore it without any negative effects. This one is really good and always gets lots of compliments. If you make it once you'll likely make it again and again.

It also freezes very well so it's great to make and pull out for a dinner here and there.

Sounds like you have got the procedure for this meal down!

We make this a lot. I've never used the liquid smoke though. Our joke around the house is, "if it can fit in a crock pot my wife can cook it." :)

My wife would ask "what's a crock pot?"

I normally get two pork butts for around 18 bucks at Costco
Which equates into about 12 pounds of pulled pork...
