  1. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika, salt, pepper and garlic powder to create a spice rub for the pork. Set aside.
  2. Trim off excess fat from the pork and discard the fat. Cut the pork roast into about 4 to 5 large chunks so that the pork will fit inside a 6 quart or larger slow cooker.
  3. Sprinkle and rub the brown sugar spice rub into the pork chunk and place in the slow cooker.
  4. Sprinkle the thinly sliced onion around and on top of the meat.
  5. Pour about 1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce over everything in the slow cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or until the pork is very tender and is falling apart.
  7. Remove the meat and onions from the slow cooker and place in a large mixing bowl.
  8. Shred the pork using two forks.
  9. Discard all but about a cup of the liquid from the slow cooker.
  10. Add the shredded pork and onions back into the slow cooker and add the remaining 1 cup barbecue sauce and apple cider vinegar to the slow cooker and stir to coat all the meat with the sauce.
  11. Recover slow cooker and turn the temperature to the WARM setting to keep the meat warm while serving.
  12. Serve meat on buns or rolls, topped with coleslaw if desired and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

To make clean up easier you may wish to either line your slow cooker with a slow cooker liner or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
