Chili Rubbed Pulled Pork
- 3 lb pork butt (boneless)
- 2 T American chili powder (NOT British chili powder unless you like pain)
- 1 T smoked paprika
- 1/4 t cayenne pepper
- 1/2 t garlic powder
- 1/2 t onion powder
- 1 t salt
- 1 t freshly ground black pepper
Cut the pork butt into 2-3 inch cubes. Place the cubes in a large bowl.
Mix the chili powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and some freshly cracked pepper in a bowl. Pour the spice mix over the cubed meat and toss to coat.
Place the seasoned meat in a slow cooker and cook on high for four hours.
Carefully lift the meat out of the juices in the slow cooker to a large bowl or dish. Use two forks to shred the meat and remove any large pieces of fat or gristle. Serve immediately or portion and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
Sept 2015: We used Penzeys BBQ 3000 as the chili powder, it worked out well!
