Remove any excess fat from the pork. In a bowl, combine smoked paprika, curry powder, turmeric, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Add maple syrup until the rub becomes sticky. Spoon or brush marinade all over pork. Lay the onion in the bottom of a slow cooker bowl. Place pork on top, put lid o ad cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.
