Southern Pulled Pork BBQ is everything.  Learn how to make my delicious recipe which is as southern as it gets!


Scale

Ingredients

DRY RUB

PORK ROAST

  • 5 lb. Boston Butt (pork shoulder roast) 
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. liquid smoke

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using your hands, generously coat pork roast with dry BBQ spice rub. Work well into the meat.
  3. Place pork in a large dutch oven.  Add water and liquid smoke.
  4. Cover dutch oven with lid.
  5. Roast pork at 350 degrees for 2 hours, checking through the roasting process to ensure there is still enough liquid to prevent scorching.  
  6. After 2 hours, reduce heat to 275 degrees, and cook for an additional 2 hours.
  7. Remove pork roast from oven and let rest for 30 minutes.  
  8. Transfer roast to a cutting board and pull meat with two forks, separating it from the fat.
  9. Cover with aluminum foil until ready to serve with your favorite BBQ sauce as a sandwich or a plate.

Notes

When serving as a sandwich, add barbecue, sauce, then coleslaw on a brioche bun. Top with pickles if desired.

If serving as a plate, add pulled pork with any sides you wish, such as Calico Baked Beans and Southern Cornbread.
