Place the pork shoulder on a large butcher paper lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, 2 tbsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper and 2 ½ tbsp of Blues Hog BBQ Original BBQ Dry Rub. Coat the pork in this mixture ensuring to cover all sides.

Remove the pork shoulder from refrigerator and bring to room temperature. This will take approx. 30 minutes.
Pat the meat dry with paper towels. Add pork shoulder to grill and sear the meat with an open flame until golden brown all over. This should take about 4 minutes for each side.
Place the pork shoulder on the grill fat-side up. Cover with lid.
