Crockpot Pulled Pork and Sauteed Squash

 Recipe adapted from here.
2.5 lb boneless pork loin roast center cut, trimmed of fat
2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp mesquite liquid smoke
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
Barbecue Sauce ( I used Stubb's and it's the best!)

Place pork in crockpot and season with salt, vinegar, garlic powder, and liquid smoke. Cover and set to high for 6 hours. Remove pork and transfer onto a large plate. Reserve all liquid. Shred pork and put back into slower with 3/4 cup reserved liquid and barbecue sauce. Cook on high one more hour.
3 oz pork is about 5 points + (Make sure you calculate your sauce, though.)
 I made sauteed squash to go with the sandwiches and it's the perfect side dish for it! 

Yellow Squash, sliced
Diced Onions (I used frozen.)
2 tbsp butter

Heat skillet and add butter. Add sliced squash and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally until squash browns.
