Delectable and Delicious Roasted Pulled Pork

This is an easy to prepare pulled pork recipe. This involves simply picking up a pork shoulder from your local super market. Make sure to ask for a 5 lb butt (which is actually the shoulder, go figure) and pick up these ingredients):  

  • 5-7 pork butt/shoulder  
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt  
  • 1 tablespoon garlic sea salt (or, you can use garlic powder and extra sea salt instead)  
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder 
  •  1 tablespoon mustard powder 
  •  1 tablespoon dark brown sugar  
  • 3 tablespoons sweet smoky paprika  

Follow these steps:  

Combine all seasonings. Rub the pork butt down hard! Be vigorous.  

Wrap the pork butt in plastic wrap and let sit in your fridge for 1 hour. 

Afterwards, preheat the outdoor grill to 300 degrees and place the pork in a roasting pan.  

Roast the meat for five to six hours. 

After 5 hours, baste the meat with barbecue sauce. A good point to baste the pork is when it is at 170 degrees and take the meat out when it is at 190 degrees, at the 6 hour mark.  

Finally, conduct the fork test. If it falls apart, it’s ready!
