I made BBQ today using the slow cooker and man was it good!!

All you need is wonderful spice rub, a nice Boston Butt, some lip smacking good BBQ sauce and a slow cooker. Slow cook it and then serve on a bun for a lip smackin' good sammie! Served with a side of "Loaded Smashed New Potatoes", it just couldn't get any better! Enjoy!!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For Spice Rub: measure out ingredients and combine.
2
Massage spice rub over Boston Butt, double wrap (tightly) and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. The longer it's refrigerated the more flavorful it will be. You can keep in fridge up to 3 days. For any spices leftover, store in an airtight container.
3
Place Boston Butt in slow cooker, add 1/4 cup water, set on high and cook for 3 1/2 hour or until tender. You can cook on a low heat 8 to 10 hours. The longer it cooks the more flavorful it will be. You don't need much water, this just gets the cooking process started. You will discard all liquid when done.
4
Once tender; remove from slow cooker; place in a dish; pull apart with 2 forks. Discard fat. Discard juices in slow cooker and returnd shredded meat to cooker. Add 1 cup of BBQ sauce and stir to coat meat. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 30 minutes. Serve on toasted buns with additonal sauce.

MY BBQ SAUCE: Mix all ingredients together.
