Prep: 5 min., Cook: 8 hrs. This super-simple recipe delivers big flavor. If you don’t have a slow cooker, place roast in a lightly greased Dutch oven; stir together barbecue sauce and cola, and pour over roast. Before placing the lid on top of the Dutch oven, cover it with a double layer of aluminum foil. Bake, tightly covered, at 325° for 3 hours and 30 minutes or until tender. Serve on buns with slaw or over hot toasted cornbread. Reduce the fat but not the flavor in this juicy cut of pork by preparing a day ahead. Cool the barbecue, and refrigerate overnight. Remove and discard any solidified fat before reheating.
