Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw

I got this recipe from the food network and it is super good and the pulled pork is so easy and can be done in a crock pot instead of the oven if you want.

Pulled pork ingredients:
Pork shoulder - couple pounds
4 TBS salt
1 TBS pepper
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. paprika
2-3 sprigs of thyme - leaves only
4 cloves garlic
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1 TBS cayenne - I normally use a little less but if you like things spicy use the whole TBS
3 TBS olive oil

Food process all ingredients together (not the pork shoulder of course) except for the olive oil, which you gradually add when all other ingredients are mixed.
Cover the entire pork shoulder in mixture making sure you get into all the nooks and crannies. Cover, refrigerate, and marinate for at least 3 hrs to overnight.

Preheat the oven to 250 -300 degrees and cook for around 5 hrs. It may take a little longer or shorter depending on your oven. When it is done it should just be really tender and just break apart.

Top with your favorite BBQ sauce and coleslaw (see below) on a quality bun.

Coleslaw ingredients - Kevin and I both really enjoyed this coleslaw

1 TBS whole grain mustard
1 c. mayo - not miracle whip
1/4 c. sour cream
1/2 lemon - juiced
2 TBS red wine vinegar
2 tsp sugar
1/2 head savoy cabbage - thinly sliced
1/2 head purple cabbage - thinly sliced
2 green onions - chopped
2 carrots - thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste

1. Combine mustard, mayo, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar. Mix well.
2. Add all other ingredients
3. Salt and pepper to taste.
