Rub pork roast all over, liberally and well with BBQ Rub. Place roast in a zip-lock gallon plastic bag, press out air and seal. Refrigerate overnight.
The following day place roast in an oven-proof Dutch oven and cover. Place in a 300 degree oven. (NO higher!) Roast for 2-3 hours.
Remove from oven and add onions & carrots. Cover and bake for one more hour.
Remove from Dutch oven and add some flour to the gravy that has formed. Place on burner and cook until thickened, stirring well.
When meat has cooled for at least 15 minutes, slice and add to gravy.
You will have the most delicious and tender roast you’ve ever eaten. Enjoy!
