I am so excited that fall is officially here and that the temperature is heading down! Â This always brings my appetite up and my slow cooker out. Â With Football season well under way and the World Series headed in to game 6 it’s time to have all your friends over for a big party. Â With a big party you need to feed those hungry mouths with some good and hearty food.
Having in lived in Memphis, TN for most of my life I am kinda fussy about the BBQ I eat. Â Now that I live in Kansas City, where they have such a different style, I take every chance I can get to have the Southern way. Â When ordering long distance from The Germantown Commissary is out of the question I make my own.Tender slow cooked meat in the perfect blend of spices is a perfect Sports watching food. Â Adding in your own homemade BBQ makes it even better.
I use spices that I am sure that you have in your pantry right now. Â Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin, Chili Powder, Smoked Paprika.
To get that perfect taste I cook the pork roast in apple cider vinegar and beer! Â It might seem like a strange concoction but trust me when I say that you can not go wrong with this recipe.The way we eat BBQ in Memphis! Cole Slaw on the sandwich.

- 3 lb pork shoulder
- 1 tbsp of each: salt, pepper, cumin, smoked paprika
- 2 tsp of each: onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder

- varied amounts of water
- leave the string on the pork roast
- mix all the spices in a small bowl
- rub the spices all over the roast
- place in the slow cooker
- pour in the cider vinegar and beer
- add enough water to take the liquid just to the top of the roast
- set cooker to slow and leave for 7-8 hours
- when ready cut string off the roast and the meat will just fall apart
- use two forks to shred the meat
- use in sandwiches or BBQ plates or just however you love your Q!
