  • 5-7 Pounds Pork Shoulder Roast

Dry Rub:

  • 3 Tablespoons Dried Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar Packed
  • 1 Tablespoon Dry Mustard
  • 3 Tablespoon Salt

Braising Liquid:

  • 2 Cups Apple Cider
  • 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Liquid Smoke
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Dried Garlic Powder

Sandwich Ingredients:

  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Prepared Coleslaw
  • Sliced Pickles
  • Kaiser Rolls or Onion Rolls


  • Mix all dry rub ingredients together.  Rub the spice blend all over the pork roast and refrigerate overnight.
  •  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Combine all braising liquid ingredients in a large dutch oven then add the pork roast.  Cover tightly with aluminum foil then tight-fitting lid and roast for about 4 hours.  Flip the roast over once during cooking so that it cooks evenly.
  • Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to handle.  Shred the pork with a fork and remove any visible fat (they won't be much).
  • Serve on buns with bbq sauce and coleslaw.
