- Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl.

- In a dutch oven, heat the olive oil until very hot. Sear all sides of the meat, until evenly browned (roughly 10-15 minutes).
- Pour the beer over the meat, add the minced garlic and cover and reduce heat to medium low.
- Cook for 2½ – 3 hours, turning the meat over periodically. Cook until meat is tender and falling apart.
