  • 5 Pork Shoulder Roast bone-in, trimmed well
  • Tomato Paste
  • 0.25 Cider Vinegar
  • 0.33 Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub
  • 1 Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q Sauce
  • 6 Baking Potato cooked
  • 8 Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 0.5 Sour Cream
  • Fresh Cilantro chopped, as garnish


  • Place pork in slow cooker. Mix tomato paste, vinegar and Spice Rub in small bowl. Rub the spice mixture over entire surface of pork. Cover.
  • Cook 5 hours on HIGH or until pork shreds easily with a fork.
  • Transfer pork to large bowl. Shred pork, using 2 forks.
  • Drain pork juices, reserving 1 cup.
  • Mix reserved juices with Bar-B-Q Sauce. Pour over pork; toss well.
  • Cut cooked potatoes in half lengthwise.
  • Scoop out some of the potato flesh in the center to make a well.
  • Spoon about 1/3 cup of the shredded pork in the hollowed portion of each of the potato halves.
  • Place potatoes on large, shallow, foil-lined baking pan. Top pork with shredded cheese.
  • Broil potatoes until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  • Spoon sour cream into small resealable plastic bag. Cut a small piece from one of the bottom corners of the bag. Close bag tightly, then pipe lines down the center of each potato to resemble football laces.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
  • Serve potatoes with remaining pulled pork on the side, if desired.
