  • Slow cooker


  • 4 lb. pork butt or shoulder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce


  • Combine the salt, garlic powder and smoked paprika in a bowl, then use your hands to rub the spice mixture all over the pork, making sure it's completely coated.
  • Pour the apple cider vinegar into your slow cooker, then place the pork on top and put a lid on it. Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or on LOW for 7 hours, then, remove the lid, pour in the bbq sauce and cook for 1 more hour.
  • Use two forks to shred the pork, toss it in the sauce and enjoy!
