The Secret to Perfect Pulled Pork

Creating the best, most tender, and juiciest pulled pork is easier than you might think. The secret lies in two key elements: the right cut of meat and time. Let’s delve into the details.

The Perfect Cut

When it comes to pulled pork, the ideal cut of meat is from the pig’s shoulder. For larger gatherings, we recommend using the full pork shoulder, which includes both the upper shoulder or pork butt (also known as Boston butt) and the lower shoulder section, known as the picnic shoulder. This generous cut, weighing between 10 to 20 pounds, ensures you have plenty to feed a crowd. For smaller groups, one of the shoulder sections will suffice.

Next comes the seasoning. We highly recommend massaging a homemade Barbecue Dry Rub all over the pork shoulder. This sweet and spicy blend enhances the flavors as the meat cooks, resulting in an explosion of taste that will leave you wanting more.

The Magic of Time

Now that we have the right cut and perfect seasoning, it’s time to talk about cooking time. Regardless of the size or section of the pork shoulder, slow cooking is the key. We prefer using an electric roaster oven over a Crockpot or slow cooker. It provides the perfect cooking environment, ensuring the pork is moist and tender.

Cooking the pork shoulder at a low temperature for approximately 10 to 12 hours allows the flavors to develop fully and guarantees that melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Serving Suggestions

Once your perfectly cooked pulled pork is ready, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few serving suggestions to get your taste buds tingling:

Classic Pulled Pork Sandwich

Spoon a generous amount of the succulent pork onto your favorite bun or bread. For an extra kick, add a little coleslaw for a satisfying crunch and a delightful contrast to the barbecue-infused pork.

A Barbecue Feast

Create an unforgettable barbecue meal by serving a heaping helping of pulled pork alongside your favorite sides. From Loaded Baked Potato Salad to Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Southern Baked Beans, or Cheesy Ranch Bread Bites, the choices are endless. Don’t forget to drizzle some Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce on top for an extra burst of flavor.

Get Creative

Pulled pork is incredibly versatile, providing endless opportunities to get creative in the kitchen. Make sliders for a handheld hors d’oeuvre at your next party, toss it on a baked potato for a succulent treat, or sprinkle it generously on a plate of nachos for a super tasty barbecue twist.

Freeze for Later

If you have any leftovers, don’t worry. Pulled pork freezes exceptionally well. Simply toss the remaining pork into an airtight container or freezer bag and store it in the freezer for up to five months. When you’re ready to enjoy it again, thaw it in the refrigerator and reheat it in the microwave.
