pulled pork
I am going to fire up my oven next weekend for the last preharvest (grape) supper. I want to do pulled pork but most recipes are lame and call for some bottled or boring sauce. Does anyone have a GREAT recipe and tips for slow cooking a shoulder of pork? My friends are food and wine people and everything that i have pulled from my oven has been great so far.

Pizza Oven Pulled Pork

1 2 3 4 5

Pig prep - 3-4#butt(no not the hammy rear end, the shoulder portion) thawed -

make brine - 1C kosher salt, 3/4C dk brown sugar or molasses or sorghum, (pigs like all sugar), bay leaves, quartered onion, smashed garlic, hot peppers, cumin, basil, oregano, 4C water/beer ---heat to boiling, cool - let pig swim in brine overnight in fridge

Pizza Day - Pig Rub -1/2C salt, 1/4 dk brown sugar, 1/4cup ground coffee, zest of orange-minced, 1 chipotle-ground, 1 ancho-ground, 1 guajillo-ground, cumin, 1/4C cracked pepper corns, oregano - mix together

Pull pig from brine pool, quick rinse and pat dry - place in aluminum (steamer table) tray and apply rub all over, let pig rest in cool area and crank up pizza oven to pizza making temp, make pizzas, entertain friends

After pizza fest (oven around 400F), push coals to back, add smoking wood if you like - allow wood to begin to smoke, make pup tent for pig in tray, add juice of zestless orange and a beer - put your pig in about the middle oven.

Close the oven with your insulated door - not your thin, bread-making oven door

Walk away, go to bed.

Pig Day - ~8hr later, get up and take your pig out -

Meat should be quite ready to pull - sauce not required

Re: pulled pork
I used almost the same method only the oven temp was MUCH lower and slow cooked it. Here is a link to the thread and recipe I used. Read a couple of the posts for the entire recipe and the rolls that I also made. These rolls were fantastic with the pulled pork.
Let me know how it comes out.
