Grandpa Billings Pulled Pork Memphis BBQ Rub

Mix all ingredients and rub into meat the night before grilling. Wrap the 5-6 Pork Shoulder Butt Roast in foil and cook for for 7-8 hours in your bbq opposite of coals.  Once done remove BBQ and let cool for 30 minutes. Then pull the pork and mix everything together before serving.
