Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
There are so many ways to go about making pulled pork at home, but I opted to do a spice rub + pork butt + slow cooker and it was AMAZING.
For the rub, I used this recipe, which called for pepper (I used ground peppercorns), paprika, cumin, oregano, cayenne, dark brown sugar and white sugar.
The resulting pork was spicy with a kick, and definitely didn't need any barbecue sauce. Not the way purists like it, but great for what I was trying to accomplish. I didn't have any leftovers, but if I had, they would have been perfect for tacos, since many of the spices are the same.
