Pulled Pork Recipe
24 hours before you want to start the smoke, remove your pork shoulder from its package, wash with cold water then pat dry with paper towels.
Keep it clean by using a pan.
Turn your pellet grill on and set the temperature to 225 degrees F.
Put your pork on your grill fat side down and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F, around 4 hours.
Newb Tip: Keep the lid closed
Time to add some more flavor! Remove the pork butt/shoulder from your smoker and place into a pan. Lather all sides with honey topped with some brown sugar.
Now wrap the pork it in a double layer of extra-wide aluminum foil or butcher paper and pour some apple cider or juice in the pack. Place the wrapped pork and pan back on the grill.
Ready for the fun part? Unwrap the pork and place into the pan. Remove any unwanted fat, remove the bone and start pulling the pork apart.
It sure is nice to have a set of Bear Claws during this process, I highly recommend getting a pair.
Honestly, I just removed some of the liquid because the meat was so good it didn’t need much else!
