3 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 olive oil
1 onion, peeled and cut in half
3 to 3 1/2 pounds pork shoulder, cut in half


Prep: 30 Minutes
Cook: 7 Hours

In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the first six ingredients (all of the spices) with a fork.

Pour in the honey, vinegar, and olive oil and stir to form a paste.

Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker. Top it with the 2 pieces of pork and then pour the honey paste over all sides of the pork pieces. It's okay if some of it (or a lot of it) just drips down to the bottom.

Turn the slow cooker on to low and cook for 7 to 8 hours or until the meat is tender enough to be easily shredded with a fork.

Serve warm with fixings like homemade cole slaw and cornbread. Refrigerate or freeze the leftovers.
