Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork

1 pork butt (pork shoulder) (6-7 pounds)
1 7 ounce can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 cans Dr. Pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 onion, peeled and quartered

Place the onion in a Dutch oven or large baking dish. Place the pork butt on top of the onion fatty side up. Pour the chipotle peppers and sauce over top the pork. Add the Dr. Pepper and brown sugar. Cover and bake in a 300 degree oven for about 6 hours (if you have time or think about it turn the meat halfway through cooking). After 6 hours of cooking check to see if the meat shreds easily, if not cook longer. (I am sure this could be made in a crock pot as well.)
