  • 4 pounds bone in pork shoulder
  • 4 tablespoons smoked paprika

  • 1 tablespoon ground white pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper leave out if to spicy
  • 1 full batch of Beasty BBQ Sauce


  • Mix all of the above ingredients except the pork shoulder and the BBQ sauce in a small mixing bowl, mix it all well making your spice rub
  • Massage the spice rub all over the meat in every crevice you can find
  • Wrap tightly in a double wrap of plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. We did ours overnight. You can refrigerate this for up to 3 days
  • Unwrap the roast and place it in your crock pot, add 1/4 cup of water and turn your crockpot on low and cook for 8-10 hours until the meat is fork-tender
  • Transfer your roast to a cutting board
  • Pull the meat apart by tearing the meat into thin shreds with two forks or your fingers
  • You can either put all the meat back in the juices in the crockpot, OR
  • Place all the shredded meat back in the crock pot and toss with Beasty BBQ Sauce and heat on low for 60 minutes until hot.
  • Serve and enjoy
