Slow Roasted Pulled Pork

Ingredients

  • 4 lb. pork butt or half butt or shoulder roast, boneless
  • 2 – 3 tbsp. of dry rub
  • 1 c. chicken stock

Directions

  1. If your pork butt is boneless and comes in a stretchy fiber net, remove the net. Place the butt into a bowl and apply the rub all over. Cover the meat and place into the refrigerator overnight.
  2. The next morning, uncover. Start up a chimney of about 30 coals. When the coals are ready, put a circle of 9 under the oven and 18 on the lid.
  3. Second session of heat: pour in 1 cup of chicken stock, close the oven. Put 8 coals under and the remainder on lid. Let it go about 45 minutes and replace the heat.
  4. Low and slow is the name of the game here, so try not to open the lid! Continue with heat, 3rd, 4th, and 5th sessions. You should end up cooking almost 5 – 6 hours!
  5. When you have finished cooking, let the meat rest for 10 – 15 minutes. Then you can take 2 forks and pull apart the roast. When you pulled all the meat, pour over the Carolina BBQ finishing sauce. Serve up with spicy slaw on slider rolls.
