Barbecued Shredded Pork in a Crock Pot

Okay, it's just a quickie. TWHS.

1 large onion, sliced
1 pork butt, about 3 to 4 pounds
1 bottle of barbecue sauce

Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place half of the onions on the bottom of the crock pot. Place the pork butt over the onions. Place the remaining onions over the pork butt. Pour the barbecue sauce over it. Cook on LOW for between 8 and 10 hours, covered (of course).
After the 8 to 10 hours, remove the lid, and pull the roast apart everywhich way, using two forks. Keep cooking for another half hour, this time on HIGH.
Serve over hamburger buns. Yummy and Easy! TWHS!
