Ingredients

  • 2

    pounds fresh boneless pork butt (or shoulder)

  • 1

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, more to taste

  • 1

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1

    teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1

    teaspoon sage 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1

    teaspoon sweet paprika

  • 1

    teaspoon dry mustard

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2

    tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 1/4

    cups root beer

  • 1 1/4

    cups barbecue sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim the excess fat from the pork butt. In a small bowl, mix together the pepper, kosher salt, cumin, thyme, sage, chili powder, paprika, mustard and garlic powder. Rub the pork with an even coating of the seasoning mix. In a heavy ovenproof pot or small Dutch Oven (the pork should fit snugly in the pan), heat the oil. Sear the meat over medium heat, browning well on all sides, about 4 minutes per side. Add the root beer (the liquid should come about 1/3 the way up the meat), and cover the pot with a lid. Place the pot in the oven and bake for 1 hour , then turn the meat over. Cover and continue bakin until the meat is tender enough to shred, and 1 more hour. (This recipe can also be cooked in a crock pot) Remove the pot from the oven, In a large bowl, shred the pork using 2 forks (you should have about 4 cups of shredded meat). Skim the fat from the pan juices, and stir in the pork and barbecue sauce. Place the pan uncovered in the oven, and bake for about 30 minutes, until the juices thicken, Serve immediately.
