Aaron's Pulled Pork (and the Fixin's)

For my dad's birthday I got him a crockpot. He uses it almost every weekend - but lately he's started to moan that all his recipes end of tasting the same. After he is done lamenting, he'll add as a sidenote that it might have something to do with the fact that he always uses the same ingredients. Hmmmmm.....
Well, my brother, Aaron, wanted to give us a new recipe that was easy. He told me to say
"Few ingredients! 10 hours! No time!" 
There you go, folks - the main selling points of pulled pork. It's true, though. You put it in the crockpot for 10 hours and when you pull it out, it's done all the work for you. 
In addition, he also provided a homemade coleslaw and barbeque sauce through recipes that his girlfriend gave to us. The recipes didn't come with measurements, so you get to have some fun experimenting! All you need to add in is some buns and you've got a scrumptious, easy feast. When Aaron went out to the store to get ingredients, he came back with 5 pounds of "Pork Shoulder Butt". We're still not sure what part of the pig we ate....
