Classic Pulled Pork

Classic Pulled Pork

Classic pulled pork is one of those dishes that every BBQ cook needs in their repertoire. It’s a classic low and slow staple that simply requires smoking until tender enough to pull apart with fork.

But as basic as it is, there are some things that you can do to take it up a notch, and some all important things to remember when cooking it. Here’s our method for pulled pork, which we’ve used in both competition and at home.



  1. Rub the pork shoulder with the rub, and set aside for 30 minutes for the rub to adhere
  2. Meanwhile, get your smoker (or oven) going at temperature of 230F using either the snake or minion method. I find that a 2×1 snake around 3/4 of the kettle usually works. Add some chunks of apple wood for smoke.
  3. Place your pork shoulder on the grill plate
  4. Check temp every hour, and if looking dry or burnt, drizzle or spritz with some apple cider vinegar.
  5. Once at 16FF, wrap it tightly in some foil.
  6. Continue checking temperature with an instant read thermometer, you’re aiming for a final temperature of 200F – 205F.
  7. Remove from the heat and allow to rest.
  8. Unwrap and shred with two forks or your hands, and stir through the Carolina style BBQ sauce
  9. To serve, heap the pork onto a bun, optionally add some BBQ sauce and top with slaw
