The Secret Sauce
Prepare to indulge in the best slow roasted pulled pork sandwiches you’ve ever tasted. Undoubtedly, the Chipotle Bacon BBQ Sauce plays a pivotal role in this mouthwatering creation. And yes, you read that right—the sauce boasts an irresistible bacon twist that will leave you craving more.
Both the sandwich and the barbecue sauce have undergone updates and improvements since the original recipe was posted. Now, with enhanced visuals and added videos, this culinary masterpiece is more enticing than ever before.
There’s something incredibly satisfying about witnessing roast pork so tender that it effortlessly falls apart. As you use two forks to shred the meat, you might find that a bone-in cut of meat allows the bone to cleanly separate without any resistance. This is the definitive sign that your slow roasted pulled pork is done to perfection.
The Perfect Cut
When it comes to slow roasted pulled pork, the ideal cut to use is pork shoulder, which is sometimes referred to as pork butt. This cut yields beautifully shredded meat after undergoing the low and slow cooking process.
Sizing it Right
Determining the right amount of pork to serve your guests can be a daunting task. However, a general rule of thumb to follow for pulled pork is one-third to one-half pound of meat per person. This recipe calls for a 3-pound piece of pork, which should be sufficient to satisfy the hunger of around six individuals.
Let the Oven Work its Magic
While achieving the perfect slow roasted pulled pork requires time, the effort is absolutely worthwhile. Interestingly, the cooking process itself requires minimal labor. Simply rub the tantalizing spice mix onto the meat and let the oven work its magic. To ensure a moist and flavorful outcome, I highly recommend adding chicken stock to the roasting pan. This not only enhances the taste but also creates a delectable liquid that bathes the meat.
Once the roasting is complete, mix the meat juices with your favorite barbecue sauce to further elevate the rich barbecue flavors. However, exercise caution, as it’s quite tempting to “sample” the meat while you’re shredding it—I must admit, I succumbed to this temptation more than once.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork: A Summer Alternative
In the hot summer months when turning on the oven is less than appealing, you can switch to using a slow cooker. Follow the instructions up until the step where you would typically place the pork in the oven. Instead, transfer the pork to your slow cooker and let it cook on the low setting for approximately six hours, covered. The result will still be a meltingly tender and delicious creation.
