Easiest Pulled Pork
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 servings
  • 1 2-3 lb pork shoulder or pork butt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sweet smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup chipotle powder
  • ¼ mustard powder
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne pepper (Cayenne is very spicy so eliminate this if you don't like spice)
  • 3 Tbsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup Tbsp Olive Oil
  1. Make the Pulled Pork: mix all of the spices and the oil in a bowl and incorporate into a paste with your hands. Rub the mixture into your meat very well, massaging it to make sure the spices penetrate the meat. Put the meat into an oven safe dish. Pour in a bottle of beer. Seal your dish well with foil paper.
  2. Roast for 3-4 hours at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Remove the dish from the oven at the 3 hour mark and check to see if the meat is coming apart from the bone easily. If it is not, roast it for a little longer. Once it is cooked and easily comes apart, let cool to a temperature that you can handle the meat with your hands. Take the pork with your hands and shred it using your fingers. Discard extra cartilage, bone and fat. Add the shredded pork back into the dish with the drippings. Reheat your meat, if needed, in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10-15 minutes. Keep warm until you are ready to use it or store in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
