A spicy blend of hot sauce, chili powder, paprika, adobo seasoning, and cayenne pepper gives this slow cooker pulled pork a delicious kick. Barbeque sauce and brown sugar add sweetness.

This is probably the best pulled pork I've had and I have made a few! I had a 7 lb. pork shoulder to use cooked it using 1 box of unsalted chicken stock in slow cooker. I used the spice rub minus the flour searing it on all sides per instructions for 8 hours on high. We used Dave's bbq sauce from this site(warm)on the side. Pork was delicious with sauce only the top of the sandwiches. Best spice rub ever!

This was tasty. I didn't find this very spicy at all and I am a spice wimp most of the time. Next time I'll up the hot sauce and/ or cayenne. It wasn't very sweet which was a nice change from the usual pulled pork

Didn't take to long getting all together and browning outside. 30-45 min with sauce time. Before tossing in crock pot. Everyone loved it. Cooked side by side with another. So family taste tested and approved recipe is a keeper.
