BBQ Pulled Pork and BBQ Baked beans:

Andy and I just threw a big BBQ Party for his work!
Here are a couple of the recipes we used:

BBQ Pulled Pork

-1 medium onion, finely chopped
-2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
-1, 4-ounce can of green chilies
-1/3 c. cider vinegar
-1/3 c. apple juice
-3/4 c. prepared BBQ sauce
-1 tsp. liquid smoke
-1, 41/2 -5 lb pork roast
-salt and pepper
-buns or rolls

-In a 4 qt or larger slow cooker, combine onion, garlic, and chilies. Place pork on top, drizzle with liquid smoke. Pour in vinegar, juice, and BBQ sauce. Cover and cook on low settings until pork is so tender it falls into shreds when prodded with a fork(about 9 hours). Carefully lift pork from cooker, discard all left over juice in the crockpot. Using two forks, separate pork into shreds. Add a bottle of BBQ sauce and warm in the crockpot or a casserole dish.
Serve with rolls or buns.

BBQ Baked Beans:

-5 slices of bacon
-2 cans (16 oz each) baked beans, drained(it is best if you use Bush's ORIGINAL baked beans)
-1/2 of a green pepper seeded and finely chopped
-1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
-1 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
-1/2 cup HICKORY SMOKE BBQ sauce
-1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

-Mix all ingredients in a crock-pot. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 8-12 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours. Make sure you stir often, scarping the bottom of crock-pot.
Makes about 6-8 servings
