How To Choose The Right Cut Of Pork

When it comes to making the best pulled pork, choosing the right cut of pork is essential. Look for a well-marbled pork shoulder or pork butt, as the fat throughout the meat will keep it moist and tender during the slow cooking process.

Opt for a bone-in cut if possible, as it adds extra flavor to the dish. Remember, quality meat is the foundation of a delicious pulled pork recipe, so take your time selecting the perfect piece for your culinary masterpiece.


  • 4 lb. boneless pork shoulder
  • 3 tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 12 oz. lager beer
  • Pepper

The Secret Sauce

  • 1 1/2 c. ketchup
  • 1/3 c. rice vinegar
  • 1/2 c. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • Potato Buns


  1. Preheat oven to 300°.
  2. Trim excess fat from pork and cut into large pieces to fit in a
    large Dutch oven.
  3. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder,
    and cumin, then season with black pepper. Rub all over pork. (This can be done
    the night before.) 
  4. In a large Dutch oven over medium high heat, heat oil. Slowly add pork and sear on all sides.
  5. Pour the beer around pork and cover with lid. Transfer to oven and cook until pork is
    beginning to turn tender, about 3 hours. Remove lid and cook until pork is very
    tender and pulls apart easily with a fork, 1 to 2 hours more. If you like your pork slightly crispy- cook for up to 4 hours.
  6. Remove pork from the Dutch oven and let rest while you prepare barbecue sauce. 
  7. Shred The Pork
    Take two forks and pull the pork apart as you shred it. Toss shredded meat with about half the barbecue sauce. 
  8. Serve Pulled Pork on a warm bun

How To Make The Sauce
Scoop the the pan drippings from the Dutch oven then whisk-in ketchup, apple cider vinegar, mustard, brown sugar and Worcestershire. Over medium-high heat, bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until thickened slightly, about 5 minutes.
