Pulled Pork

This pulled pork is extra sweet from apple juice and brown sugar. It is cooked low and slow until it is perfectly tender and falls apart.

You can prepare this pork in a smoker or oven. If using an oven, make sure to add a bit of liquid smoke for that extra flavor that comes from cooking in a smoker.

Pulled pork is excellent piled on toasted buns, and served with BBQ sauce and coleslaw. It is also great stirred into casseroles, enchiladas and tacos, topping a pizza, or mixed into egg dishes.

Ingredients

1 boned pork shoulder

Rub:

3 tablespoons mustard

pork rub, as needed

Wrapping:

1/2 cup apple juice

2 tablespoons honey

4 tablespoons brown sugar

50g (4 tablespoons butter)

Glaze:

1 cup BBQ sauce

1 tablespoon pork rub

1/2 cup apple juice

Equipment

smoker

hickory or other wood chips

Recipe Directions

  1. Trim the pork to remove any tags, residual bones shards and excessive fat.

  2. Rub the pork with the mustard, then sprinkle with the pork rub to evenly coat. Bring up to room temperature, about 1 hour.

  3. Preheat a smoker to 120 degrees C (250 degrees F). Add 3 large hickory or similar wood chunks.

  4. Smoke the pork for 3 hours.

  5. Combine the apple juice, honey, and brown sugar. Cut the butter into pats.

  6. Place the pork on top of a large piece of foil. Pour over the apple juice mixture and butter. Wrap tightly with a second layer of foil.

  7. Return to the smoker and continue to cook for 3 additional hours. Check the pork for doneness by probing for the desired texture and about a 90 degrees C (195 degrees F) internal temperature.

  8. Combine the BBQ sauce, pork rub, and apple juice. Baste the pork with the glaze and return to the smoker for 15 minutes.

  9. Rest the pork for 30 to 90 minutes before pulling. The remaining sauce can be stirred through the pulled pork.

  10. If using an oven, use the same directions as above, but add 1 teaspoon liquid smoke to give it additional flavor.
