  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ½ cup cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 (5 pound) boneless pork shoulder, trimmed

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce


  1. Set a slow cooker to Low. Combine water and vinegar together in the slow cooker.

  2. Rub oil over entire pork shoulder and let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Mix brown sugar, seasoned salt, black pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cinnamon together in a bowl; rub over entire pork shoulder. Place pork shoulder into the slow cooker.

  4. Cook on Low, 6 to 8 hours.

  5. Transfer pork shoulder to a work surface and let rest for 10 minutes. Discard cooking liquid from slow cooker. Place pork back into the slow cooker and shred; add barbeque sauce and stir.

Cook's Note:

After the pork has cooked for 6 to 8 hours, you can reserve 1 1/2 cups cooking liquid to stir into the shredded meat in place of the barbeque sauce if desired.
