How to make Easy Pulled Pork
In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients.
Unwrap pork shoulder and put into pan fat side up. With a sharp knife, score the fat into diamond shapes. Cut 20 slits randomly into meat. Insert 1/2 garlic clove into each slit.
Rub dry mixture all over pork, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Remove pork from refrigerator and let come to room temperature for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Farenheit.
Remove plastic wrap, from meat, and cover with foil.
Place into center of oven and cook for 4 hours. Then remove foil and cook for an additional 90 minutes - uncovered.
Remove meat from oven and let sit for 15 minutes, so that juices will stay in meat. Remove meat to a platter and pull apart.
