BBQ pulled pork sandwiches & "doctored" up baked beans

Happy 4th of July everyone :) hope everyone has a safe and relaxing holiday... I unfortunately had to work, but on a good note got out 3 hours early and came home and took a nap... what a nice surprize....

Wasn't able to get together with the family and have a big BBQ and watch the fireworks... have to get up early for work tomorrow... (do you see the correlation between that darn old work word and NO FUN???... LOL)  but anyway still wanted some good old fashioned BBQ....  and baked beans... didn't have time to make my usual beans but still wanted some yummy ones.... so doctored up ones it is... anyway enjoy :)

BBQ pulled pork sandwiches

1 large pork roast
2 onions, peeled and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
1/3 cup water
seasonings of your choice ( I used seasoned salt & pepper and a little garlic powder)


1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce ( I used Sweet baby Ray's)
1/4 cup molasses
1 T. worchester sauce
1 T. mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
seasonings of your choice ( I used garlic & onion powder, pinch of celery seeds, red pepper flakes, paprika & chili powder and a dash of cinnamon
2 T. of cooking liquid from roast.
Buns of your choice. 

In slow cooker add water to the bottom of the dish, next place sliced onions and garlic.  Add pork roast and sprinkle with the seasonings .  Cook on low for 8-10 hours until done.  Let cool and place in fridge overnight. 
The next day in a large saucepan shred meat, saving onions and garlic (I drain the roast using a colander to capture the onions and garlic).  Turn heat to medium and add sauce ingredients mixing well but not totally breaking up the meat.  Simmer until hot and bubbly and heated through.  Serve on buns.  Enjoy

" Doctored" baked beans

1 large can of your favorite baked beans ( I used Bush's baked beans with onions)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 T. mustard
1 t. worchester sauce
2 T. molasses
1 t. cider vinegar

Cook all ingredients mixing well until sauce is slightly thickened and beans are hot and bubbly.
