Pulled Pork

Pulled pork takes a bit of work but it is worth it. We spent the morning taking the whippets to the farmers' market so we started a little later than we wanted to.

We use Boston Butts and usually smoke two (they go quickly).

I am in charge of the rub which changes every time I make it. This time it is a mixture of kosher salt, brown sugar, different types of red pepper, white pepper, black pepper, chili powder, garlic, onion, and paprika. It gets rubbed all over the pork and is added to apple juice for the mop.

While the pork is resting--Steven builds the fire. Once it is ready-- the pork and smoking wood go in and then we wait. Usually fours with smoke and another 3-4 with the pork wrapped in a turkey roasting bag. While it is smoking with add the mop to the pork.

Once it is done-- it is incredible.

I usually make a couple of sauces to go with it.The finished product in a turkey roasting bag.
