  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 dash garlic powder

  • 1 dash onion powder

  • 1 (4 pound) pork shoulder roast (butt roast)

  • 2 cups water to cover

  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce


  1. Combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, white sugar, garlic powder, and onion powder in a bowl until evenly mixed. Rub spice mixture over pork. Cover pork with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.

  2. Place the pork into a slow cooker and add enough water to just cover the pork. Cover and cook on High for 4 hours or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.

  3. Transfer pork to a large bowl and shred with 2 forks; discard any bone, skin, and excess fat. Drain and reserve cooking liquid from the slow cooker. Return shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir in barbeque sauce.

  4. Reduce heat to Low and cook for 2 more hours. Add enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten the pork to taste.


Cook's Note:

To cook in the oven, place pork into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish, fat-side up. Add a little water to keep the pork moist. Bake in the oven until very tender, about 5 hours.
