3 tablespoons Smokey BBQ Rub, recipe follows

2 red onions, thinly sliced

16 ounces barbeque sauce

Smokey BBQ Rub:

1/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons dark chili powder

2 tablespoons smoked paprika

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

  1. Stud the roast with the cloves and rub with the Smokey BBQ Rub. Place the roast in a slow cooker and top with the onions. Cover the roast with 2 cups of water and slow cook for 8 to 10 hours. Remove the pork, discard the cloves and layer of fat, as well as any water and grease remaining in the pot. When the pork is cool enough to handle, use a fork or your hands to shred and pull the meat apart. Return the meat to the slow cooker along with the barbecue sauce. Heat for 1 to 2 hours. Serve on your favorite roll.
