Table for More: Spicy Pulled Pork

I finally got to the pulled pork – it was well worth the wait! I love this recipe. It uses a lot of spices, but fairly common ones. I used a 3.3 lb roast for about 7 large servings. Enjoy!


  • 1 tbsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • ½ tbsp. dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. table salt
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 (3-6 lb) pork butt
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce


  • Mix all of the spices together in small bowl.
  • Massage spice rub into the meat. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap – double layer if needed.
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 3 days. (Longer for stronger.)
  • Unwrap the roast and place in slow cooker with ½ cup of water. Turn on slow cooker to low and cook for 8-10 hours, or until meat is fork-tender.
  • Take roast out of slow cooker and pull apart meat with 2 forks into thin shreds. Separate the fat and discard.
  • Put shredded meat back in the slow cooker. Mix in BBQ sauce.
  • Heat on low for 45 minutes, or until hot.

*I like to make double the spice rub and use the extra in burgers, chicken, and other dishes. It’s deliciously spicy.
