  • 3 lbs. bone-in pork shoulder
  • 1/4 cup PLUS 1 Tbsp. firmly packed dark brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup PLUS 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika, divided
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

  1. ARRANGE pork in large non-aluminum roasting pan or baking dish; set aside. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper and water in small bowl; rub onto pork. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 3 hours or overnight.
