Before I had a smoker, I used this to satisfy my pulled pork or carnitas craving. This meat is great in pulled pork sandwiches (see my coleslaw recipe) or in tacos. If you do not have all the spice rub ingredients, just get creative and use what you have. It will still turn out great. It is always a party-favorite. Enjoy.
