1teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 300.
Place pork on a rack in a large roasting pan. Pour beers over pork and into pan.
In a small bowl, mix rub ingredients with a fork until well blended. Pat rub over top and sides of the meat. Cover meat with tin foil or the roasting pan lid.
Check the pan every couple of hours to be sure the bottom has not dried out. You may need to add more beer or some water.
Cook for 6-7 hours, until meat is tender enough to easily pull apart with a fork.
Remove meat from pan and shred, using two forks. Pour some (or all) of the liquid from the pan over the shredded meat. You want the meat to be moist but not swimming in liquid.
You can serve as is with barbecue sauce on the side or go ahead and mix sauce into the meat and put it back in the oven for 10-15 minutes to blend the flavors.
