Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Creole or spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 3 -to-4-pound boneless pork shoulder
  • 2 links andouille sausage
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 8 soft sesame buns
  • Pickle slices and potato chips, for serving
Directions

Whisk 1 1/2 cups water, the vinegar, ketchup, 1/4 cup mustard, the molasses and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a 7-to-8-quart slow cooker.

Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar, the paprika, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub all over the pork, then add to the slow cooker along with the sausage. Cover and cook on low, 8 hours.

Remove the pork and sausage and set aside to cool slightly. Skim off the excess fat from the cooking liquid, then strain into a large skillet and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by one-third, about 15 minutes.

Shred the pork with a fork and coarsely chop the sausage. Toss the pork and sausage with enough of the reduced cooking liquid to moisten; season with salt.

Whisk the mayonnaise and the remaining 2 tablespoons mustard in a small bowl; spread on the buns. Fill with the pulled pork and pickle slices. Serve with potato chips.
