    Morrison's Note:

    This is a recipe that I have been tinkering with for a while. Sometimes you want to make a dish that takes a better part of the day, but you can't always tend to it and that is where this technique comes in. I will often times smoke my 4lb shoulder or pork loin (when it's on sale) for about 3 hours, and do the final 3-4 hours in the oven. This recipe is for a 4lb cut of meat and I recommend about 75-80 minutes/lb for loin and 85-90 minutes/lb for shoulder. All measurements are approximate and will probably vary greatly.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-12



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Rub the meat (fat side up of course) with the mustard until the top is coated sufficiently.
    2. 2
      Drizzle the honey on in a zig-zag pattern (I like side-to-side as opposed to top-to-bottom).
    3. 3
      Sprinkle on the remaining ingredients in order, covering the top of the meat entirely with the spices.
    4. 4
      You can apply the rub the night before if you'd like, but it is not vital.
    5. 5
      Prepare smoker per manufacturer's instructions.
    6. 6
      When the smoker has reached 225-250F add the meat. Be sure to keep the smoker's temp around this level for best results.
    7. 7
      After approximately 3 hours turn your oven on to 225°F.
    8. 8
      Prepare a serving dish with a double layer of foil that will be large enough to complete wrap around the meat and seal tightly.
    9. 9
      When oven is up to temperature transfer the meat to the foil and wrap lightly.
    10. 10
      Place pan on center rack and cook remaining 3-4 hours.
    11. 11
      Allow the meat to settle for at least ten minutes before shredding with a fork. The pork should have an internal temperature of at least 195°F This will make for much easier shredding.
    12. 12
      I like to serve my pulled pork with with the sauce described in Pulled Pork and BBQ Sauce.
