How to Make It

Step 1

Cut 1 (4- to 5-lb.) bone-in Boston butt pork roast in half, and trim pork. Rinse and pat dry.

Step 2

Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Smoky-Sweet BBQ Rub. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Step 3

Place pork in a lightly greased 6-qt. slow cooker, fat sides up. Cover and cook on LOW 7 hours or until meat is tender and shreds easily.

Step 4

Transfer pork to a cutting board, discarding liquid; cool slightly.

Step 5

Shred pork with 2 forks. Stir 1 1/4 cups barbecue sauce into pork.

Step 6

Return pork mixture to slow cooker; cover and cook on HIGH 30 minutes, or transfer pork mixture to a 2-qt. baking dish, and bake at 350° for 25 minutes.

Great roast BBQ recipe

Really good recipe!.  I would recommend Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipotle BBQ sauce.  Trimming the fat from the meat is easier after it is cooked.
