1. Prep the Pork: Rub the pork shoulder with salt, smoked paprika, black pepper, and garlic powder. Let it marinate for at least 1 hour (or overnight if possible).

2. Slow Cook: Place the marinated pork in a slow cooker. Add sliced onion, minced garlic, BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, chicken broth and brown sugar. Cook on low for 8 hours or until the pork is tender and shreds easily.

3. Shred the Pork: Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred it using two forks. Remove the cooking liquid, skim the fat from the sauce left in the cooker and set it aside. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker. Add about a cup of the reserved cooking liquid (or more, to taste) to keep the pork moist and flavourful. Stir to combine and add more bbq sauce if desired.

4. Serve and Enjoy: Serve the pulled pork on toasted buns, topped with coleslaw, or alongside your favorite side dishes.

Cooking Tips

Slow Cooking: For best results, cook the pork on low. This allows the pork to become more tender and absorb the flavors fully.

Marinating: Marinating the pork overnight will enhance the flavor and tenderness of the meat. 

Adding Spice: For a smokier flavor, you can add a teaspoon of smoked paprika to the spice mix.
