As one who was raised in Memphis, TN, I can assure you that only Corky's BBQ touches my lips. But when not in Memphis, this is a close 'second' and better than all the other "World's Champion BBQ' establishments" :)
Remove shoulder from crock pot, discard all water, garlic and onions. Place shoulder on plate, remove all fats, bone, etc. Pour enough BBQ sauce in crock pot to lightly cover bottom. Layer pieces of shoulder in crock pot, then sauce, more shoulder, (sauce, shoulder pieces, sauce, shoulder pieces, sauce, shoulder pieces and sauce last). Quarter-cut remaining onion and place quarters of onion at 4 locations around shoulder. Cook for 4 hours on HIGH.
Remove shoulder from crock pot and serve on buns.
Memphis style: Add coleslaw and splashes of Louisiana Hot Sauce.
Another serving tip: When having spaghetti with meat sauce, allow for large serving of BBQ to accompany the meal. In Memphis, it's called "Half 'n Half." (1/2 plate spaghetti; 1/2 plate BBQ).
Cooking tip: If desired for lunch tomorrow, plug crock pot into Appliance Timer and have it set to turn "on" at Midnight and "off" at 6 AM.

You bet'cha! Place Pork shoulder in crock pot. Add garlic and 1/4 cup water. Quarter-cut 1 onion and place quarters of onion at 4 locations around shoulder.
Spray insides of crock pot with non-stick spray. Trim meat carefully and cut into serving size pieces. Alternate layers of meat with sprinkled layers of Shake 'N Bake, ending with Shake 'N Bake.
Bring to boil and simmer for 3-3 1/2 hours. Could put in crock pot for 6-8 hours. Could use sauce on ribs.
Put half of onions in bottom of crockpot. Add meat and other ingredients with remaining onion on top. Cover and cook overnight or 8-12 hours on low.
Brown hamburger. Pour milk over bread crumbs and add to hamburger with remaining ingredients and mix like meat loaf. Simmer until cooked through or place in crockpot on low.
