Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork

  • Ingredients:

    4 tablespoons paprika
    2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons salt
    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    1 tablespoon white sugar
    1 tablespoon ground white pepper
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste
    1 (7 pound) bone-in pork shoulder roast
    ¼ cup water
    ½ teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring (Optional)
    2 cups barbecue sauce


    Step 1
    Mix paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, oregano, sugar, white pepper, and cayenne together in a small bowl.
    Step 2
    Massage spice rub into the pork roast. Wrap tightly in a double layer of plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
    Step 3
    Unwrap the roast and place in the bottom of a lined slow cooker. Add water and liquid smoke. Cover and cook on Low until pork is fork-tender, 8 to 10 hours.
    Step 4
    Transfer roast to a cutting board; discard liquid in the cooker. “Pull” by tearing meat into thin shreds with 2 forks or your fingers. Discard fat.
    Step 5
    Place shredded meat back in the slow cooker; toss with 1 cup barbecue sauce, and heat on Low until hot, 30 to 60 minutes. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce.
