Easy dutch oven pulled pork

I love pulled pork. The test of a good bbq joint for me is how good is their pulled pork. Sadly, it’s not fiscally responsible to go out for bbq all the time so here’s a quick pulled pork from your Dutch oven. It is technically not bbq and doesn’t have that awesome smoke but it’ll make you pulled pork sandwiches in a pinch. Just a note, I go light on the heat for my little ones who don’t like it. This is for a 5 lb pork shoulder or Boston butt.

Dry rub:

1 Tbsp paprika

2 tsp brown sugar

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp black pepper

Heat oven to 375.

Trim excess fat from your pork. Mix the rub together and rub on to your pork. Let sit overnight if you have time. I will admit I have rubbed this one before immediately putting into the oven. I put on the dry rub on the pork while directly in the Dutch oven. Make sure to coat the whole piece of meat.


Put into the oven and cook for 3 1/2 hours.


Remove from the oven and pull pork away gently with two forks. I like to leave larger pieces so it’s not all shredded.


Top with your favorite bbq or vinegar sauce. Eat by itself or in a sandwich!
