Throw in chopped onion, bay leaves, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bbq sauce, bourbon, apple cider vinegar & chicken broth.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  Shred pork with a fork, then return to that beautiful sauce.  Allow to soak up the sauce before serving.

Caramelize Onion:

Melt butter over medium heat.  Add onions & balsamic vinegar.  Cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring only to avoid burning.
