Mix first 5 ingredients in small bowl to blend. Sprinkle dry rub all over pork, pressing into into meat and fat; you will have extra rub. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours to overnight. Preheat oven to 300F. Mix together mop ingredients, reserving one cup for later. Place pork fat side up on a rack in a roasting pan. Cover with foil and place in the oven. Roast until very tender, brushing with mop every 45 minutes; about 3 hours. Remove foil for the last hour of cooking. Cool pork briefly, and shred with two forks. Toss with any reserved oven juices. Toss together slaw ingredients and set aside. Whisk together the reserved mop liquid with the ketchup and brown sugar, adjust seasoning to taste.
Pile the shredded pork onto the buns, drizzling with the mop sauce, and topping with the slaw.
