  1. Mix the dry rub ingredients in a small bowl. Rub mixture all over the pork shoulder. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next morning, roast the pork shoulder at 300 degrees for about six hours (the pork should fall off of the bone when it’s done). Let the roast rest on a meat plate for about 15 minutes.
  3. Deglaze the browned drippings from the pan with a half cup of water. Add the drippings to the barbeque sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer for about fifteen minutes.
  4. While the pork is still warm, pull the meat by using two forks. Use one fork to steady the meat, while using the other pull the meat into shreds. Put the shredded pork into a large bowl and mix in about half of the sauce. Spoon a hearty serving of pork on a hamburger roll. Use extra sauce as desired. Serve with crunchy dill pickles.

Additional Tips

When you're pulling the pork, work with it while it's still warm. It separates much easier. Coleslaw is a good accompaniment.
