Top Review by chia
this is without a doubt one of the best new things i've made in a long time! i've eaten enough pulled pork but never even thought of making it until i saw your recipe. i had the butcher cut it for me since it wasn't on the shelf, and got 5 lbs. made the rub in the morning, massaged it in, took a shower, put it in the 300 oven with 3/4c water- i was nervouse in case it boiled down. went to work, came home, lowered the heat to 200, made the sauce. to die for-
- 4 -5 lbs boneless pork roast (Boston Butt is recommended)
- true se nc barbecue sauce (True Southeastern North Carolina BBQ Sauce)
- 1⁄4 cup new mexico chile powder
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix all ingredients for the rub together until well blended.
- Rub on the pork roast.
- Allow to stand 30 minutes before cooking.
- Place pork roast in a baking pan, add about 1/4 cup water and cover tightly.
- Bake slowly (250 F- 300 F) for 4 to 5 hours, or until the meat is tender enough to"pull" with a fork.
- Shred the meat and then add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of recipe number 51595, True Southeastern North Carolina BBQ Sauce.
- Stir through the meat until absorbed (you don't want sauce standing in the bottom of the dish, as it can become quite strong in flavor).
- Serve with hush puppies and coleslaw (I recommend Chia's Cole Slaw recipe#47606).
- If making pulled pork sandwiches, just put the pork on a hamburger bun, with some coleslaw that has been flavored with mustard.
