1 (4-6 pound) bone-in pork shoulder
4 cloves of garlic
1 large onion
1 bottle of  beer (I used an ale.)

Spice Rub:
1 tbs ground black pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbs chili powder
1 tbs ground cumin
2 tbs dark brown sugar
1 tbs dried oregano
4 tbs paprika
2 tbs salt
1 tbs white sugar

This is a great dish to serve at parties as little sandwiches. Although it can be messy, so I wouldn’t serve it at a black tie affair. I would stick to the casual paries or when watching football with the guys. The kids love it too!

This is a SLOW COOKER recipe, so give yourself about 8 hours of cook time.

Tip: While this is cooking, DO NOT open the lid. This releases the heat and adds to the cook time. Just leave the top on till it’s done. You don’t need to stir it.

Mix all spices together in a bowl.
Rub the spices into meat and wrap tightly in double layer of plastic wrap.
Then refrigerate for at least 3 hours. I did this about 12 hours before I cooked it.

When you’re ready to start cooking, slice up the onion and make a “bed” of onions on the bottom of the slow cooker.
Then slice the garlic and place that throughout the onions and then pour the beer in.
Unwrap roast and place it in on the bed of onions, garlic and beer.

Turn slow cooker to low and cook for 8 hours.

Take pork out and “pull” on cutting board, using 2 forks to sperate meat. Drain most of the beer out of the cooker. Leave the onions and garlic and a little liquid. I used a slotted spoon and just tipped it into the sink.

Place shredded meat back in slow cooker and mix with the onion, garlic and beer.

Serve on buns or WITH BBQ sauce on the side.

On step 8, you could add a cup or so of BBQ sauce, and heat on low for 30-60 minutes if you wanted BBQ pork. That’s good too.

The beer and spices give this meat a great flavor.
