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.
