Combine garlic powder, paprika, salt and oregano. Rub the spice mix into the lamb shoulder. Rub the vinegar into the lamb shoulder. Make 5 small incisions in the lamb shoulder and insert the rosemary sprigs in each one. Roll the lamb shoulder and place in the slow cooker. Cook on low setting for 6 to 8 hours.

Remove from slow cooker, place on a board and shred with a fork.
