  • Mix all 9 spices, from black pepper through white pepper in a small bowl. Lay pork shoulder on a large piece of plastic wrap and use rub to cover all sides of pork, massaging the rub into the meat. Seal tightly with two layers of wrap and refrigerate for 3 and up to 24 hours.
  • Remove roast from plastic wrap. Place roast in slow-cooker. Add beer and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours, or until pork is cooked through and pulls apart easily. Discard cooking liquid.
  • Let pork rest until cook enough to tear into thin shreds. Remove fat if desired.
  • Toss pulled pork with BBQ sauce and serve on buns with coleslaw.


  • Recipe will make approximately 30 sliders. (using 3 ounces of shredded pork for each slider if using a 6 pound pork butt.)
  • Nutritional value does not included BBQ sauce or toppings.
