Directions:

The BBQ sauce is easy! Add everything to a small stove top pan and simmer on low for about 20 minutes. Yup. That easy. imageedit_1_6748943924For the pork:

1. Mix all the rub spices together. Liberally massage the spices all over the raw pork.

2. Place the pork butt in a slow cooker for 8-12 hours on low. This is the step you may also drop in 2 or 3 drops of liquid smoke.

3. Once the pork is cooked pull apart the meat with forks and/or your hands. Obviously it will be very hot, so you may want to remove it from the heat for a little bit before doing this. I know this is a common-sense thing, but I have to add it just in case someone goes to the ER with burns and tells the nurse they were following my recipe exactly.

I digress.

4. Once you’ve pulled apart the meat add about 1 cup of bbq sauce. Mix it in evenly. The amount you add is up to you. I sometimes add a little bit of the juice form the crockpot in at this point too. It keeps it form drying out if you’re going to reheat it for leftovers.

      It depends on how it is stored. I store mine an air tight sealed bottle or container for a month or so. It will depend on its storage container and how much air gets to it.
