Slow Cooker Barbecue Beans

This recipe is perfect for leftover barbecue. Although it calls for pork, feel free to use chopped or shredded chicken, turkey, or brisket. If time is a concern, pick up meat from your favorite barbecue joint (just make sure you get it without sauce to prevent the beans from being too soupy).
