Seriously the BEST RUB for making pulled pork in the crock pot.~ I let the spice rubbed pork sit in the fridge over night. I didn't put the pork back in the crockpot with the bbq sauce, instead, I put the pulled pork on toasted buns and stuck under broiler for about 45 seconds, took out of oven and added BBQ sauce and Slaw on top. Yummy! I will need to halve the rub recipe next time.
pulled pork dry rub recipe ~ entire family LOVED this...I used the whole recipe (and subbed smoked paprika for regular) for rub on an 8# bone-in pork butt and covered it the night before....in the morning, baked covered for one hour at 400 degrees, then for 5 more hours at 325 degrees. Shred and enjoy!
6.45 lb. Made it in the crockpot. High for 1.5 hours, low for 6 hours. Put broth in the bottom then set the butt on 2 balls of foil, fat side up. It was amazing. I would try it in the oven next time for the crispy edges.
