Pulled Pork - Cooked in the Pit Brothers BBQ PB 1 Smoker

Pulled pork cooked in one of my smokers is always a family favourite! It makes the tastiest pork tacos and the yummiest sandwiches. You too can cook a tender pulled pork at home using a pellet smoker or offset, a charcoal grill or even your indoor oven!

Here's my recipe!

Method: Cooked Low & Slow - Using indirect heat.
Total cook time: 8 Hours - smoker / 5 Hours - charcoal grill or indoor oven


2 - 2.5 kg (8oz-5lb) deboned, rolled and in netting.
Your favourite commercial rub (I have used Pit Brothers BBQ Pork Rub )
Olive oil (to brush pork)

Basting Liquid
1 cup apple juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup liquid stock (vegetable)
1 tablespoon of Pit Brothers BBQ Por Rub


Step one - Brush pork shoulder with olive oil and apply a generous amount of BBQ rub.

Step eight - Wrap in foil after 2 hours and continue cooking for a further 6 hours. (continue to brush with basting liquid - yes you will need to unwrap it slightly whilst you do this. Be sure to wrap back up)

Step nine - The pork will soften and shred easily once it reaches an internal temperature of 200 - 205f

Step ten - Allow to rest wrapped in foil for at least 20 minutes before shredding.
