1 pork shoulder, doesn't too much matter the size, but don't you dare trim the fat!
I like to prick mine with a fork or knife to get the seasoning in well, but it's not required. Also,I have an oblong crock pot, so I actually doubled the dry rub, left all else the same, and stuffed two into one pot with a cast iron trivet to weigh the lid down. You can freeze any leftovers in two or three portion sizes per bag.
This little piggy isn't going to the market, he's going to the crock pot! This is what we're going to bathe him in so that he gets nice and tasty! Just stir everything together and dump it over your meat. It's just that simple!
