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.
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!
