  5. Add enough water to cover 1/3 of the roast.
  6. Cover. Cook on High for 6 hours, checking to make sure there is a small amount of liquid in the bottom of the crock.
  7. Reduce heat to Low, cook for 2 to 4 hours longer, or until meat is tender and falls apart.
  8. Transfer the meat to a bowl and shred using two forks (reserve 2 cups of cooking liquid, if desired).
