Chili Rubbed Pulled Pork

I've done some extensive research, and I've discovered the best way to make and enjoy this dish.  You're welcome...

Step 1: Purchase pork.  A few days later, realize that pork is no longer good (even though expiration date is days away).

Step 2: Walk to two different grocery stores trying to find and re-purchase pork.

Step 3: Trim the pork.  Cut into chunks.

Step 4: Add to slow cooker.  Toss in all the spices in your pantry.

Step 5: Head to the bar for 4 hours.  Drink 3 glasses of wine. (Optional, but highly recommended)

Step 6: Return home. Shred meat.  Stuff face with shredded meat while standing at the counter. (This last step is optional, but very likely to occur if you chose to indulge in Step 5.)

And there you have it!  You just made this pulled pork a real thing.  Go on with your bad self.
