pulled pork

15 posts in this topic

3-4lb pork roast covered in Carribean Jerk Seasoning.

Put it into the crock pot with some onions and garlic.

Fill up the crock pot about half way with Orange Juice and cook for about 4hrs.

Let cool.

Shred it up.

Put back in crock pot with about 1/2-1C more OJ and some Famous Dave's Rich & Sassy Sauce. I like a few dashes of Tobasco in mine.

Let cook on low for about 30 mins more.

Slap it on a bun with a slice of Swiss Cheese and a dill pickle slice. grin

Season whole or portion of a pork shoulder (butt) with your favorite dry rub. put it in the smoker (I have a cookshack) with hickory or applewood at 225 degrees for as long as it takes to get to 190/195 degrees. Depending on size of meat can take up to 16 hours. I use a digital therm. that sticks in the meat and I can read from the outside. When the meat reaches aprox. 160 it will sit there for sometimes 2-3 hours (do not turn heat up or do anything at this time) this is called the plateau and is normal. when meat reached temp wrap in foil and put into a dry cooler with newspapers for at least 2 hours and up to 4. Remove, "pull" meat, and enjoy with a little mustard sop or BBQ sauce on an onion bun. Nothing better!

I have used this one several times and it is easy and tastes great. I like to make up some coleslaw and slap it on the buns with the meat...Awesome!

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin

1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle root beer

1 (18 ounce) bottle your favorite barbecue sauce

8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted

DIRECTIONS

Place the pork tenderloin in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.

Cole Slaw!

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon celery seed

4 cups chopped cabbage

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, mayonnaise, and celery seed. Add cabbage and toss to coat.

I smoked a pork butt for about 3 hours and then finished it with indirect heat on the weber for another 3 hours. Turned out great but what I am wondering is how you are supposed to pull the meat. I did it by hand and it took me about an hour. Is there a better way to do it?

It might not have been done enough, Pork butt should be around

195 degree's. It will fall apart then.

When I make pulled pork an 8 lb boston butt takes 10-12 hours on a 300-325 degree charcoal grill cooked indirectly to finish. Like BBQhead mentions I cook to 195 and monitor via a wireless thermometer so I don't have to open the barbacue much.

Chaff when I have cooked PB it is so done that a fork will shred it very quickly. When the guys are up I will smoked it for 4 hours the day before and throw it in a crock pot in the morning on low while we are out fishing all day and diner is ready when we get back. I also like to make the cole slaw the day before to set the flavor.

We just take our pork and throw it in the crock in the morning with Lawry's, pepper, onion slices and anything else I see in the cupboard that grabs me. Sits all day while at work on low. When we get home, we pull it out and cool for a short time or start shredding right away. We use a generous amount (LOTS) of a BBQ sauce we get from a small shop by Aberdeen ( can't remember the name off hand). It simply is the best pulled pork out there. I have tried many other sauces but none can touch it.

    •   Yep, am with ya......and most of us thank you. Should not be a difficult concept to understand.....except for a select Jv few.

    • Reinhardt was sincere, and I don't believe he was trying to sell anything,  He had a lot of knowledge about meat, and simply wanted to share it.   I didn't fault him for his politics, either.  He was simply misguided on that....        
    • I took Mickey in 2008. Bubbles 4 years later. Not too worried about winning as some on here .....as winning in  those years wasn't really winning, and so far, neither is picking the winner in 16, other than saying you picked the winner and "get it".

    • Murphy’s Law   I went out this afternoon trout fishing.  I questioned the wisdom of fishing on a robin’s egg blue sky day.  Trout shun sunlight.  I went outside to check the weather. The warmth of the afternoon coaxed me out of the house.     I fished a stretch I have done well on in the past.  I knew because of the bright sun I would more than likely not do well on big trout this outing.  Trout do not have eye lids and shun bright sun. When I got to the stream the outdoor temperature was 58 degrees.  I took the water temperature and it was almost 50 degrees.  That is well within a good temperature range to score some trout.     I hit the water at 2:45pm.  The sun was high in the sky and not a single cloud was in the sky.  I knew from experience that days like these I typically fished the shaded side of the stream.  There was no shaded side of the stream.      The fishing was tough.  I had lots of follows and flashes at my lure.  None seemed to want to commit.   I decided to look for cover for the trout.  I decided anything to throw a little shade on the trout would make them feel comfortable.     The trout had lock jaw.  I decided to target broken water so the trout would feel secure and come out in the bright light.  They still were bashful.  I decided another trick was in order. I was going to throw in the biggest snarly messes and let the lure drop to the bottom and give it a tweak to start the blade going.  Bang bang and I was in business.  This only worked in deep runs and i lost a few lures throwing into the mess.     I ended the outing with 24 brown trout to hand. The biggest was about 16 inches.  It was 5:30pm.  I usually get out at a bridge and today was nothing different.  I stood on the bridge looking upstream.  There was a sweet log jam just upstream of the bridge and it was in shadows.     I decided i was going to go just upstream in the shadows and cast a few more times. I was still on the bridge looking upstream. I looked at my reel and there was a loop on the spool.  This loop needed to be cast out if I was going to continue fishing.  I decided the bridge afforded the best angle and no trees in the way to cast out the loop in my spool.     I cast off the bridge.  The loop caught and dropped my cast about 15 yards upstream.  It nearly didn't land in the water.  It hit tight to the bank and I had a big snarl in my reel.  I looked down and saw my panther martin was barely in the water.  I decided to pull off some line and get this snarl out.  I made even a bigger mess.     I sat down on the bridge rail and started to mess with my giant snarl.  I again looked at my lure and it was barely in the water.  I was worried about losing the lure because of the snarl.  It was safe and barely dangling in the water.     I  really made a mess with the reel.  I was cussing it and trying to untangle it.  I lost focus on my lure in the water. I was peering over my glasses and really putting all my attention on this mess and I heard a splash sound.  I looked upstream and saw nothing.  I looked back at the reel.  I heard a louder splash and looked over the bridge at my lure suspended in the water.     My mouth dropped open wide and I stared in disbelief.  Me messing with the line caused the lure to jig up and down in the water.  This attracted a predator.  Not 2 inches from my lure was a giant trout suspended and staring at the size 9 gold panther martin deluxe waiting for it to move again.     My reel was still messed up so there was no battling this huge female trout on my reel if it decided to quit dancing with my panther martin and eat it. The bridge was at least 15 feet off the water and the idea of battling a monster trout from above was not appealing.  I worked frantically on the snarl.  It got even more messed up.     My fighting with this reel and keeping one eye on the giant female was nerve racking.  She still was very interested in my lure.  She circled it like a shark.  It was more than I could stand.  I decided if I hooked up with her with this less than optimal circumstances I would lose her and maybe kill her because of the bridge nonsense.     I decided to try to catch her another day.  The reel was non functional and i grabbed the line and lifted the lure out of the water.  What happened next is going to be relived in my dreams for the rest of my life.  The monstrous female brown bum rushed the lure as I lifted it out of the water.  It launched itself out of the water snapping at the spinner.  It was a swing and a miss. I got my wits back together and thought about cutting out the snarl and trying for her. I decided a return trip was on the agenda.  As I write this recollection I smile and cuss my circumstances.
