Mix rub ingredients and rub onto Open Prairie Natural Pork roast. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight if possible.
When ready to smoke, heat smoker to 250°F. Add applewood chips that have been soaked in the apple cider.
Smoke roast for 1 hour per pound or until internal temperature reaches 180-190°F. Let roast rest for a few minutes before pulling.
For a moist, tender roast, wrap roast in foil before cooking. For a tender roast with a hard crust, cook without foil.
Serve pulled pork on slider buns with apple slaw.
Pair with a Pinot Noir wine that has a crisp acidity and medium tannin levels. Or, try a Belgian style pale ale that is fruity and malty, with a hint of smokiness.
