Kalua pork in a slow cooker

This is a simple way of making traditional Hawaiian kalua pig without having to dig a hole in your back yard. It is a great tasting pork you could use for lettuce wraps, tacos, BBQ pork sandwiches with added BBQ sauce.. it was way tender. I used it for lettuce wraps... will post recipe for that later.

Kalua Pork
Original Recipe Yield 12 servings

1 (6 pound) pork butt roast  (I had a 3 1/2 pound roast, made a lot)
1 1/2 tablespoons Hawaiian sea salt
1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring  ( I used the Hickory smoke flavor)

Pierce pork all over with a carving fork. Rub in salt, then liquid smoke over meat. ( I didn't measure the salt or liquid smoke... I just sprinkled it over the roast and rubbed it in) Place roast in a slow cooker.
Cover, and cook on Low for 16 to 20 hours, turning once during cooking time.
Remove meat from slow cooker, and shred, adding drippings as needed to moisten.
