This is a good recipe. For those who find that it lacks flavor, DO NOT ADD LIQUID. Pork shoulder/boston butt makes lots of its own liquid in the slow cooker (you only dilute the flavor when you add liquid). Just rub the spices over the meat and throw it in the cooker and you will have a flavorful piece of meat (with plenty of liquid) to shred and use for tacos, burritos or whatever.

We make something similar to this for "taco night" at our house. The only changes I make are, I put the pork roast in the crockpot, season with salt and pepper and garlic and cook all day. I don't use any liquid. We lightly fry flour tortillas and assemble the tacos! This is a family favorite!

Rubbed the taco seasoing on the roast the night before and poked the meat several times. Added a can of mexican chilies to the slow cooker. Made excellent shredded burritos with the addition of cheese and refried beans.
