Easy Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork

Pork loin with fat trimmed
1 large bottle BBQ Sauce
Worshire sauce
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Chipotle Chili Powder (optional)
Whole Wheat hamburger buns

In a crockpot, mix Bbq sauce, (I like KC masterpiece original), 1 tsp Worshire sauce, 1 tbs mustard, and a pinch of Onion, garlic, and chipotle powder. Add approx 1/2 cup water to thin out the sauce a bit. Next, add the pork loin, roll it in the sauce and set the crockpot for 4-5 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Once the pork is tender, it will be easy to pull apart. Shread it with a fork and return to the sauce and serve on whole wheat buns.
