Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Resting Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 6 hours 15 minutes

Serves: 8

 

Ingredients:

2-3kgs Pork
 

Pork Rub:

8 tbsp smoked paprika

6 tbsp brown sugar

3 tbsp salt flakes

2 tbsp black pepper finely ground

1 tbsp ground cumin

1 tbsp mustard powder

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp onion powder

½ tsp cayenne powder

 

 BBQ Sauce:

1 cup ketchup

1 ½ cup apple juice

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup brown sugar

4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp garlic powder

3 tsp onion powder

1 tsp salt

½ tsp black ground pepper

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

 

Pulled pork:

💨 Remove any silver skin and hard solid pieces of fat, these will not render down during the cooking process.

💨 Trim off most of the soft fat, you can leave some as this will render down.

💨 Trim off any loose bits of meat as these will just dry up during the long cook.

💨 Using a rub shaker, give the pork a generous coating of dry rub from approximately 12” above the meat. This just allows the rub to fall and coat evenly, as opposed to clumping and giving an uneven coverage.

💨 Leave this to sit for around an hour while you get your cooker ready, the dry rub will turn to what looks like a wet glaze this time.

💨 Set up your smoker for high indirect heat using charcoal and wood for smoking.

💨 Once the temps have stabilized at 70°, put the meat in the smoker.

💨 After 2 hours into the smoke check the meat for any dry patches. If there are any, give the dry parts a spritz with apple juice. Keep checking every half hour after this and spritz if needed.

💨 Once the internal temp reaches 70°, wrap in a few layers of tin foil and put back on the heat.

💨 When the internal temp reaches 90°, start probing the pork for tenderness. When you feel no resistance from sticking a metal skewer in, you know it will be time to rest.

💨 Put into a chilly bin wrapped in towels to keep hot for 2 hours.

💨 After 2 hours has gone by, remove from the cooler and transfer to a tray, including all of the juices.

💨 Pull the meat apart, removing and gristle of hard fat. Once all pulled apart, add a sprinkle of the dry rub and squirt of the BBQ sauce.

💨 Serve.

  

To Serve:

In burgers with a fresh crunchy slaw to help cut through the smoky-sweet pork.

In tacos with some finely sliced lettuce, a drizzle of the BBQ sauce and some spicy mayonnaise.

On some loaded nachos, crunchy and filling but just the perfect comfort food.
