INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pinch of cayenne pepper, optional

5 pounds boneless pork butt or shoulder

10 to 12 soft hamburger-style buns

CAJUN SLAW INGREDIENTS:

2 bags Broccoli Slaw

½ cup mayonnaise

1½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce

½ teaspoon celery salt

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

PORK - In a small bowl, mix the chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne, if using. Rub the spice mixture on all sides of the pork. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Place pork in a smoker or slow cooker. Low heat and cook for 10 hours. Transfer from the slow cooker (or smoker) to a roasting pan and shred with two forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Pour the broth into a heatproof pitcher or large fat separator, and skim off the fat. Put the pork back into the slow cooker. Stir into the pork and cook 2 hours. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pork from the slow cooker. Place the meat on a serving platter or on individual buns. Serve the remaining sauce alongside.

SLAW – Combine all ingredients in large bowl and chill until needed.
