Best BBQ Pulled Pork

A long, long time ago (think high school) I used to work in a butcher shop. It was owned by my aunt and uncle and, although there were some fantastically disgusting elements to the job, it was actually a pretty decent time. I learned to chop meat, cook animals, and made the best bacon and havarti sandwiches ever - the type of sandwich that can only be consumed during that special period in your life before your metabolism checks out and your ass fat checks in.

While that sandwich will forever hold my heart (in the form of clogged arteries), my favourite part of the job was the Saturday Barbecue. My aunt would cook three delicious, juicy meats looooonnng and slow on the grill. Usually it was turkey, beef, and - the best ever - pulled pork. The smell would waft through the small city streets, and customers would drive hours to come every weekend. The loyalty was well deserved because, god damn, you couldn't find anything else as delicious within a 50km radius.


While the barbecues have long been packed up, and the shop is now closed, I still love to follow in my aunt's footsteps and make the best pulled pork on the grill ever.

I've included her recipe here, along with her famous barbecue sauce to get the authentic Saturday Barbecue experience. The sauce makes about ooohhh a dozen batches, so feel free to scale it down if needed (if you have trouble, email me and I can do it for you! leannebakes [at] gmail [dot] com). The pulled pork recipe uses a honking shoulder, but you can use the same seasonings and method for other cuts, too. If you're a purist, just slap your pork shoulder on the grill with no extra fuss and muss and let it do its thing.
