An even simpler recipe for BBQ pork

Okay, I want to stress how easy this is to cook.  VERY EASY and VERY TASTY.  You will need at least one large jar or bottle of BBQ sauce, 1 regular sized Crockpot, 1 medium flavored beer and 1 4-5 pound pork loin. (You probably could use some pork chops or pork steaks even as a substitute.)

Now, this is how easy this is:  You take the loin and chop it into half-fist sized chunks.  Then add the chunks to the ziploc bag and add the beer.  Close and leave in the refrigerator for about 12 hours or overnight.  First part done.

Now, the next part is that you plug in the Crockpot and get it ready.  Then empty one corner of the bag and drain out the liquid.  You then pour the rest of the contents into the Crockpot.  Also add about 3 cups of water and 1 large jar or bottle of BBQ sauce. Set to low and leave for about 10 hours.

When you get back to it, after those 10 hours, it will be very tender, it will wall apart, and will be flavorful.  It could be served like that, or since we like extra sauce in my family, we even added more sauce to if afterwards.

Let me also stress that this recipe only has in it what is put in.  I don't salt the pork at all and the alcohol is only used as a tenderizer so there really isn't any in the finished product.  The quality of your BBQ sauce is the key so I would recommend getting one that isn't full of Sodium or High Fructose Corn Syrup.  Speaking of the latter, it took my 5 minutes to find a BBQ sauce that didn't have HFCS in it. Every brand from Jack Daniels to Budweiser, has High Fructose Corn Syrup.  So, either make your own sauce or find one like Guy Fieri's brand, that does not have it.
