Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 3 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 1 (5 to 7 pound) pork roast, preferably shoulder or Boston butt
Cider Vinegar Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1½ cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup yellow or brown mustard
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Serving:
  • 12 hamburger buns
  • 1 recipe Spicy Slaw, recipe follows
  • Pickle spears
Spicy Slaw
  • 1 head green cabbage, shredded
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 red chile, sliced
  • 1½ cups mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Creole mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Pinch sugar
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed
  • Several dashes hot sauce
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix the paprika, garlic power, brown sugar, dry mustard, and salt together in a small bowl. Rub the spice blend all over the pork and marinate for as long as you have time for, as little as 1 hour or up to overnight, covered, in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  3. Put the pork in a roasting pan and bake for about 6 hours. Basically, roast the pork until it's falling apart and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 170 degrees F.
  4. To make the barbecue sauce: combine the vinegar, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, salt, cayenne, and black pepper in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer gently, stirring, for 10 minutes until the sugar dissolves.
  5. Remove the pork roast from the oven and transfer to a large platter. Allow the meat to rest for about 10 minutes. While still warm, take 2 forks and "pull" the meat to form shreds. Using 2 forks, shred the pork by steadying the meat with 1 fork and pulling it away with the other. Put the shredded pork in a bowl. Pour ½ of the sauce on the shredded pork and mix well to coat.
  6. To serve, spoon the pulled pork mixture onto the bottom ½ of the hamburger bun, and top with the spicy slaw. Serve with pickle spears and the remaining sauce on the side.
Spicy Slaw
  1. Combine the cabbage, carrot, red onion, green onions, and chile in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, and sugar; stirring to incorporate. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss gently to mix. Season the cole slaw with celery seed, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Chill for 2 hours in refrigerator before serving.
