Combine brown sugar, salt, smoked paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, pepper & cayenne. Rub all over pork. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 8-24 hours.
SLOW COOKER METHOD Place the sliced onion and chopped garlic in the bottom of a slow cooker. Top with braising liquid. Unwrap pork and place on top. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 hours.
OVEN METHOD Place onion and garlic in the bottom of a large dutch oven and pour in braising liquid. Cut the pork into 3 pieces, place in dutch oven, cover, and cook for 3 hours. Remove the lid and cook for another 1.5-2 hours.
Shred cooled pork into bite-sized pieces, discarding some of the excess fat. Let braising liquid settle for 5 minutes, then remove fat from surface. Toss shredded pork with braising liquid to keep the meat moist.
