Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue
3 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
3 tablespoons kosher salt
4-6 pound bone-in Boston butt
Pan drippings (not the fat) from the slow cooker after pork is done
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Combine all rub ingredients in resealable jar. Rub 2-4 tablespoons over Boston butt. Make three small balls of aluminum foil and place in the bottom of slow cooker (this keeps the meat from getting soggy). Place pork on aluminum foil balls and cook on low 8-10 hours. The bone should slide out with no resistance when done.
For sauce, remove pork from slow cooker. Skim fat from top and strain meat drippings through fine mesh strainer. In a medium saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and meat drippings. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower heat and simmer until sauce reaches desired thickness.
