- Combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, pepper, mustard and garlic. Rub into pork roast. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Cover roast surface with parchment paper, then cover container tightly. Cook in a preheated 325°F (160°C) oven for 4 to 5 hours or longer, until pork is so tender that it falls apart when pierced with a fork. Turn roast a few times during cooking.
- Meanwhile, in a saucepan, whisk barbecue sauce with maple syrup, Worcester-shire sauce, mustard, vinegar and soy sauce. Bring to a boil.
- When roast is ready, remove from Dutch oven. Slice and reheat in the sauce.
- For pulled pork: Cool roast for about an hour, then shred meat into pieces. Com-bine with sauce. Place in a baking dish, cover, then heat thoroughly in a pre-heated 350°F (180°C) oven for approximately 30 minutes.
