Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I am sure there are better recipes for this out there, but I can't think of any easier. Jake and I love to do these on a day we have planned to be busy.

2-3 lbs picnic pork roast (this is a cheap meat--we have found it on sale for 99 cents a lb. before!)
1 cup chicken or beef broth ( I suppose you can use water too, this just keeps it from burning in the slow cooker)
2-3 tbsp hot sauce
Dash garlic, pepper, paprika (whatever flavoring you like, it will be just a hint when the roast is done)
1-2 drops of liquid smoke(totally optional)
1 bottle BBQ sauce
Hamburger buns, split potato rolls, or hoagie buns

Put the roast in a crock pot with all ingredients except the last two (buns and sauce).
Slow cook 6-8 hours on low.
You will know when the roast is done when you can shred the meat by stirring it with a fork in the pot.
At this point you can pour in your desired amount of sauce in the pot, or you can just place the meat on buns and  each person top it with their own amount of sauce.
This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or whatever to feed a crowd. To me it is reminiscent of the wallaby's pulled pork sandwich that my Uncle Ryan used to run.
It would be fun to get several unique BBQ sauces when you are feeding a group for them to try.
