Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches

With Fall upon us, I love busting out my crock pot. It just feels like the season of comfort food and the crock pot is a great way to make those hearty dishes without too much effort. Dump the ingredients, turn it on and walk away.
Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches
1 - three to four pound boneless pork roast
1 - white onion
garlic powder (I never measure this, just sprinkle it on until the whole roast is covered well)
20 oz. or so of the best barbeque sauce you can find. (I use Sweet Baby Ray's - Honey Barbeque)
large hamburger buns or rolls
Place the pork roast into the crock pot. Cover entire roast with garlic powder (however much you prefer). Cut up onion and place in crock pot. Next, pour water over the entire roast, just enough to cover it. Put the lid on and turn the crock pot on low. Cook for eight hours. Yes, EIGHT HOURS! So be sure to start early! After eight hours remove the crock and dump all the water out. I use a colander to do this so I don't lose any of the onioney goodness. Place the onions and the roast back into the crock pot. Cover the roast with barbeque sauce. You can use a little or a lot depending on how you like your pulled pork. Place the lid back on the crock pot and let it cook for another hour on low. When it's done, grab a bun and serve it up sandwich style!
