Paula Deen's Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
- Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
- 5 lbs boneless pork butt or shoulder
- 2 c barbecue sauce (homemade or store bought)
In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Rub the spice mixture on all sides of the pork. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
Place pork in a slow cooker. Set on low heat and cook for 10 hrs. Transfer from the slow cooker to a roasting pan and shred with two forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Pour the broth into a heatproof pitcher or large fat separator, and skim off the fat. Put the pork back into the slow cooker. Combine the skimmed broth, and the barbecue sauce. Stir into the pork, and cook for 2 hrs.
