Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

I threw this dinner together one night with leftovers and it was so good.  The last time I made a pork loin, I cooked it in the crockpot and then shredded it and froze most of it.  A few weeks ago I pulled some out for a quick meal.  For the sauce, I used 1/2 bbq sauce and 1/2 homemade huli huli sauce (leftover from another night, recipe below).  I topped it with Spicy Slaw, pineapple chunks, and ate mine wrapped in lettuce leaves Lo had his on leftover hot dog buns.

pork roast or pork loin, trimmed of extra fat
1/4 cup water
liquid smoke, if you have it
spice rub of your choice or just a few shakes of seasonings

Add pork to crock, pour water in the bottom, drizzle with a few shakes of liquid smoke, and spread spices on meat.  Cook 8 hours on low or 4-5 on high, until meat shreds easily.
