  • 3 tablespoons Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 tablespoons White Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 3 tablespoons Coarse Salt
  • 1 large Onion cut into thick slices
  • 1 - 5 to 7 lb Pork Roast or Boston Butt


  • To a medium sized bowl, add paprika, garlic powder, white sugar, brown sugar, chili powder, and salt. Mix together to make a dry rub. Sprinkle dry rub over pork roast and pat into meat, making sure to cover every side.
  • Place pork roast into a casserole dish and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in fridge to rest for at least an hour, preferably overnight.
  • Lightly coat the bottom and sides of Crock Pot with nonstick cooking spray, then line the bottom with onion slices. Remove pork roast from the fridge and place on top of the onions in the bottom of the Crock Pot.
  • Cook on HIGH for 6 hours. When the pork roast is done cooking, carefully remove it from the Crock Pot and place on a separate plate, leaving the onions in the pot. Using two forks, shred the pork roast. Serve right away or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
