  1. Combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, white sugar, garlic powder, and onion powder in a bowl until evenly mixed. Rub spice mixture over pork. Cover pork with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.
  2. Place the pork into a slow cooker and add enough water to just cover the pork. Cover and cook on High for 4 hours or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. Transfer pork to a large bowl and shred with 2 forks; discard any bone, skin, and excess fat. Drain and reserve cooking liquid from the slow cooker. Return shredded pork to the slow cooker and stir in barbeque sauce.
  4. Reduce heat to Low and cook for 2 more hours. Add enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten the pork to taste.

Yummy really yummy. I left my 7lb pork shoulder in the crock pot on low for almost 12 hours. It feel apart with just one touch and was full of flavor even before I put the bbq sauce in. I served melt in your mouth sandwiches for Super bowl that everyone raved about. Thank you for the recipe.

Omit the WATER! Instead use broth, cider, soda- anything but water. Water pulls out all of the flavor and juices out of meat. (Just think, which is better, boiled chicken or grilled chicken?) I still gave this 4 stars because the spice mixture is great, but as a rule if you want flavor, you should not cook meat in water. Another tip is to sear all sides of the meat before placing it in the crock pot which will seal in the juices and add that great classic darkened BBQ caramelized, delicious outer layer which adds texture and quality to your meat. Otherwise you risk getting a mushy canned meat texture.
