  1. Stir the salt, brown sugar, pepper, dry mustard, paprika, smoked paprika, chipotle pepper and cumin together in a small bowl. Use your hands to rub it into the meat, covering every surface.
  2. Place seasoned pork in large slow-cooker (we use a 6 quart size) and add Rhubarb BBQ Sauce and turn the meat to coat. Leave meat fat side up.
  3. Cover and set the slow-cooker on low for 8 hours. The meat is ready to serve, or you can refrigerate it overnight and skim off any excess fat that rises to the top, then reheat on top of stove or in microwave. Serve on buns, with corn tortillas and/or alongside some low FODMAP slaw.


  • You can halve this recipe if making for a smaller crowd. Simply use half the amount of all the ingredients and set the slow cooker for 6 hours.
