this was fantastic!! a keeper for sure! used a 4 lbs. bone-in sirloin pork roast. loved the rub!! i used smoked paprika which gave it a fabulous smell!! i also added some garlic powder to the rub. i love the idea of tossing the pulled pork with the vinegar mixture, instead of just serving the pulled pork with a vinegar or tomato based sauce. the coleslaw dressing was to die for! we actually smoked the pork for the first 4 hours, then wrapped in foil and finished off in the oven until the internal temp reached 195. thanks for posting, this rocks!! made for pac spring '10.

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Mix together the salt, pepper, and paprika; sprinkle all over the pork and rub inches
- In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a 24-inch-long sheet of heavy duty foil and double wrap the pork.
- Place the pork, skin side up, in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish; roast until tender, about 4 1/2 hours. Remove from the oven and carefully unwrap the top of the pork, revealing the skin. Increase the heat to 450 degrees and roast for 20 minutes more.
- Transfer the roast to a large bowl, along with any juices. Using two forks, shred the pork. Add the vinegars, sugar, and hot sauce; toss. Serve on the hamburger buns, topped with coleslaw (recipe follows), if using.
- For the coleslaw: In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegars, sugar, hot sauce, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper. Add the cabbage and toss. Let stand for 30 minutes, then toss and serve.
