  • Cut pork shoulder in half so you have two 1 pound pieces.
  • Mix all of the dry ingredients together and rub them on to the pork.
  • Place pork into the pressure cooker and add BBQ sauce and water.
  • Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to SEALING. Set to HIGH pressure for 40 minutes 
  • When the timer goes off let the pressure cooker do a natural release for 10 minutes. Then turn valve to VENTING and release any remaining pressure before removing the lid. 
  • Remove the meat from the pressure cooker, leaving behind the liquid, and shred the pork. Add more BBQ sauce to the meat if desired.
  • Enjoy!
