Use the slow-cooker and liquid smoke instead of grilling and wood chips. The result is outstanding, and the pork is packed with flavor.















Dry rub:
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ tablespoon salt
2 pounds pork shoulder
roast, boneless, up to 2 1/2 pounds
Barbecue sauce:
½ cup water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
¼ teaspoon salt
plus 1/8 teaspoon
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
Additional ingredient:
teaspoon liquid smoke
or more as needed


To make the dry rub and pork.

Mix together all the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.

Rub the pork roast with dry rub thoroughly until the pork is evenly coated. At this stage, you can wrap the roast tightly and refrigerate it for a day.

To cook the pork:

Place the pork shoulder into the slow cooker along with the liquid smoke, packing down as far as possible, fat cap facing up.

Cook at LOW setting for 8 to 10 hours. DO NOT USE HIGH SETTING. Slow and low only.

To make the sauce:

In a medium bowl or a measuring cup, add all the sauce ingredients, and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.

To serve:

Pull the cooked pork with two forks or your hands.

Pour 1/4 cup BBQ sauce over, gently toss the pulled pork.

Ladies for those who are confused, I was too. I blended about an 1/8 cup water with the liquid smoke and added to bottom of crock pot. Hope this helps.
