Generously rub pork, cover and marinate in refrigerator overnight. Slowly smoke pork roast according to your smoker or grill directions (indirect heat) approximately 6-8 hr until internal temp is 185°. Alternatively, after 2 hours of smoking, the pork may be covered and finished in a 300° oven (best results will be achieved on grill or in smoker). Let pork rest off heat for 20 min until cool enough to handle. Remove the bone and shred pork with forks or tongs. Drain excess liquid. Toss with heated BBQ sauce until lightly coated. Mound on buns * and top with coleslaw and more sauce if desired. Serve with Grilled Corn and Smoked Paprika Butter (available at your Market Cheese Shop).
