bbq pulled pork

sunday felt like a good day to slow cook a pork roast.. the house smelled wonderful all day.. i got a large roast and will be able to make 2 meals out of it.. sunday's dinner.. bbq pork sandwiches, cole slaw, baked beans and macaroni salad.. round 2 meal spicy pork with nan bread and riata sauce..



prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 8 hours
servings: 8

ingredients:

dry rub:

3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons smoky paprika (if you don't have smoky then 4 tablespoons of regular is fine)
1/2 tablespoon cumin
2 teaspoons chipolte pepper (if you don't have cayenne is fine)
1 tablespoon white pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

1 6-8 lb. pork shoulder (bone in)
1 large onion, sliced
1 large granny smith apple, sliced

your favorite bbq sauce (we love sweet baby rays)
hamburger buns or rolls
spicy bread and butter chips (optional)

mix together spice rub in a large zip lock bag, shake to combine all ingredients thoroughly. gently rub all over pork shoulder.. (any remaining rub put in a mason jar and keep for another use).. set pork shoulder to the side while you slice onions and apples.. place in the bottom of the slow cooker and put roast on top of onions and apples with the fat cap facing up (so the fat drips down over the meat keeping it moist).. cover and cook on high for 7-8 hours or on low for 11-12 hours.  After about 7 hours check and see if it's falling off the bone and easy to shred if so remove pork from crock pot place in a large bowl, discard onions, apples and any juice accumulated.. remove fat cap (it will fall apart so do your best to get all the fat) and bone from roast and discard.. shred pork with 2 forks; once it's all shredded add your favorite bbq sauce and thoroughly incorporate.  add pork and sauce back in crock pot and cook another hour on low.. serve on hamburger buns with pickles..
