Amazing Pulled Pork

I found this super yummy recipe on Tidy Mom's blog a few weeks ago and she raved about it so I knew I needed to try it. It really is amazingly good! Your supposed to put bbq sauce on it and serve it on a bun but that didn't happen in our house....it was so good as is. I did serve it with a side of Joe's BBQ sauce for dipping but ended up eating more of it without.

4-7 pound pork butt roast, bone in
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 Tbsp. salt & pepper
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1. Rinse roast and pat dry. Spray roasting pan really well with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast in roaster.
2. Place all other ingredients in a food processor until blended well.
3. Rub mixture all over roast making sure to get it into all creases and folds.
4. Place about 1 cup water in the bottom of roasting pan, cover, and bake for 4-6 hours (roughly 1 hour per pound) at 300 degrees. Turn every hour.
5. Once roast is fork tender, remove lid and crank the temperature to 400 degrees. Let the roast cook an additional 15-20 minutes, skin side up. This should make it nice and crispy.
6. Let roast sit for 10 minutes, then remove bone and shred with two forks. Pour the remaining juice from the pan back over the roast and serve!
(You can serve this with a side of bbq sauce or on a bun covered in bbq sauce.)
