8 lb. Boston Pork Shoulder
1/4 cup Tony's Chachere
1/3 cup paprika
1/8 cup cayenne
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 cups brown sugar
Sandwich buns
BBQ sauce

Combine all dry seasonings (except for brown sugar).
Place pork in a gallon size Ziploc bag and pour seasoning mixture over pork until all is coated.
Add in the brown sugar and coat pork just as you did for the dry seasoning.
Place in fridge and marinate over night.
In the morning, place pork into a crock pot and squeeze seasonings from bag onto pork.
Cook on low for 8-9 hours. The pork will make its own juice. DO NOT add water.
Once cooked, drain juice into separate dish and reserve.
With 2 forks, pull the pork apart from the bone. If the pork is cooked long enough, it will be very easy to pull off.
Add back approximately 1/2 cup of the juice (just enough to keep it moist).
Serve on sandwich buns with BBQ sauce or over green salad with favorite dressing.
Great with coleslaw!
