Ingredients

One 4-to-6 pound bone-in pork butt

2 tablespoons light brown sugar 

1 tablespoon ground ginger 

1 tablespoon paprika 

1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper 

1 tablespoon kosher salt 

6 cloves of garlic, minced 

One 12-ounce can of your favorite beer 

8 to 10 brioche buns 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Place the pork shoulder on a cutting board or baking sheet. Whisk together the brown sugar, ginger, paprika, black pepper, salt and garlic in a small bowl. Rub the spice mixture all over the pork butt.
  3. Pour the beer and orange juice into a large Dutch oven and add the pork. Cook, uncovered, basting with any juices that accumulate in the pan, until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 200 degrees F and shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Let the pork rest for 10 to 15 minutes, then shred. Serve on brioche buns.
