Our Recipes: Authentic BBQ Pulled Pork

At Baytree we use this recipe as often as we can though why Pulled Pork is such a little known dish is really beyond me.

In the BBQ and Creole regions of the US the dish is used by everyone from keen cooks to professional BBQ chefs and everyone seems to have their own particular recipe.

Whichever you use, the real key to this dish is time, at 5 hours in the oven it’s perfect for a lazy Sunday and will quite literally feed an army by the time you get it to the table.

If you buy your pork shoulder as early as you can and do the brining in the morning the day before you cook, you’ll really notice the difference when it comes to the moistness of the meat. Add the spice mix in the evening and cook the joint the next day.

Although this recipe does take time it’s nearly impossible to spoil providing you use a real unboned shoulder of pork and no matter how good the soft, smokey aroma that will overwhelm your kitchen, try not to open the oven too soon !!
