1 T. brown sugar

1 T. paprika

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 2-4 lb. boneless pork butt or shoulder

2 tsp. worcestershire sauce

½ tsp. dry mustard

1 garlic cloved, minced or pressed

¼ tsp. cayenne powder

1 tsp. chili powder



1)  place onion in slow cooker. combine rub ingredients in a small bowl and rub into the pork. place in slow cooker.

2)  in a medium bowl combine sauce ingredients. whisk together. pour over pork and cover with lid.

3)  cook on low for 10 hours or high for 5-6 hours.
