Slow Cooker Chili Rubbed Pulled Pork


  • 3 pounds pork butt or shoulder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine all spices in a bowl.
  2. Cut pork into 2-3 inch cubes. Place the pork cubes in a large bowl & coat with spices.
  3. Place the seasoned meat in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 4-5 hours, or low for 8-9 hours.
  4. After cooking, stir the meat with a fork to shred the meat. If it’s not tender enough to fall apart when stirred, return the lid and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  5. Keep the shredded meat in the juices from the slow cooker until ready to serve for the best flavor.
