Rub Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs. packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbs. chili powder
  • 1 tbs. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 8-10 lb. Pork Butt Roast (aka Shoulder) (I use Hormel)

 

  1.   Carefully, rinse all blood off of Pork Butt.
  2. The night prior to cooking, mix together dry ingredients and spread all over meat.

 

 

Rub Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs. packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbs. chili powder
  • 1 tbs. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 8-10 lb. Pork Butt Roast (aka Shoulder) (I use Hormel)
  1. Pour Chicken Stock in crockpot.
  2. Carefully place rubbed Pork Butt into crockpot.
  3. In crockpot, cook on High 10-12 hours. Cook on low 6-8 hours (usually I start it before work and it is done by the time I get home).
  4. Naturally, the meat starts to pull away from the bone. Use two forks and start to “pull” the meat. I actually remove all fat from the meat.
  5. After pulling all of the meat, add barbecue sauce to consistency you like and put on “Warm” in crockpot.
  6. Serve meat (on a Hawaiian roll), add a little sauce on top, and enjoy!
