Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is one of those dishes that gets you hooked on BBQ, and once you learn to make it you'll be surprised at how easy it is. The 2 key things here are preparation and patience, pulled pork is easy as long as you have this in mind. Whilst it may take a long time to prepare it's well worth the wait for that tender porky goodness. We usually start a cook in the morning, marinating at around 10am but not putting the meat on until midnight, and it's normally ready for lunchtime the next day.

METHOD

Step 1

Add Fruit Juice to ProQ Marinade Injector and inject liberally into the meat in several places. Cover and chill overnight or through the day, depending on when you intend to start cooking. 

Step 2

Light your ProQ Smoker and dry pat your meat to remove any excess moisture.

Step 3

Apply ProQ All Purpose BBQ Rub to all external areas of the meat massaging as you go, and making sure you have nice even coverage. 

Step 4

Put meat on the smoker at 225°F, and add your ProQ Smoking Wood Chunks, If you have one, set your ProQ Smartfire to a pit temperature of 200°F min. 250°F max, and your meat for 195°F. Check the smoker every four hours and top up your fire and water if needed.

Step 5

BE PATIENT! When the shoulder gets between 195°F and 200°F and has a "jelly-like" feel when touched, take it off. Wrap it in heavy duty foil and let it sit in a cooler-box or sealed container for an hour, before pulling it apart by hand or using forks. Once Shredded, serve in a bun, with 'slam, BBQ sauce or however you like and enjoy the hard earned fruits of your labour.
