sunday slow roasted pork roast

It was a wonderful sunday.. we got a lot done in the backyard.. we went to breakfast at coffee cup in boulder city.. and then went shopping for groceries and diy before we left i made the rub for this roast (the rub was inspired by this recipe..) turned the oven to 225 and put the roast in to slow cook..

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 7 hours
servings: 4-6


1  2-3 lb. pork butt
1/4 cup beer

rub (there will be left overs put in air tight container and use the next time your grilling- i used it in burgers last week)

3 tbls. cinnamon
3 tbls. ancho chile powder
3 tbls. chipolte chile powder
3 tbls. ground coriander
3 tbls. brown sugar (i used splenda)
2 tbls. smokey paprika
2 tbls. garlic powder
2 tbls. onion powder
2 tbls. course sea salt
2 tbls. coarsely ground black pepper
1 tbls. all spice
1 tbls. ground ginger
1 tbls. ground fennel seed
2 tsp. cayenne pepper

combine all the spices above in a mason jar.. rub the rub all over the roast (you will have left over rub) and then put your roast in a casserole dish fat side up.. place dish in a preheated 225 degree (f) oven and slow roast for 5 hours.. after about 2 hours i poured in 1/4 of a cup of beer in the pan..

after 5 hours i removed it from the oven and  finsihed cooking it on my bbq grill.. i had one side on medium-high and i cooked it on the off side for 2 more hours... then i removed it from the grill let it sit for about 10 minutes then shredded it.. we served it with grilled veggies and a salad but would have been wonderful on a bun or in a tortilla..
