  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Mix all of the above ingredients except the pork shoulder and brandy 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, I did mine overnight. You can refrigerate this for up to 3 days
  • Unwrap the roast and place it in your crock pot, add 1/8 cup of Brandy and 1/8 cup of water.
  • Turn your crock pot on low and cook for 8-10 hours until the meat is fork-tender
  • Transfer your roast to a cutting board and discard all the liquid in your crock pot
  • Pull the meat apart with two forks or your fingers
  • Place all the shredded meat back in the crock pot and toss with a full batch of my Raspberry BBQ Sauce and heat on low for 60 minutes until hot.
  • Serve and enjoy
