BBQ Pulled Pork

Get Pork joint (sometimes called a Boston Butt or Picnic Joint) – about 8-10lb

Rub all over with DRY mixture of brown sugar, paprika, Italian seasoning, chili powder, garlic, salt and any other spices that you like in your BBQ flavour profile. Leave to marinade uncovered in fridge overnight.

Get up really early and fire up your oven to about 130 Celsius (low & slow, baby). Put pork in oven and leave it alone for about 6-8 hours. Remove from oven. It should be pull-apart tender. At this stage you can either go to town on it and pull it all apart and mix it up with all the juices or just take enough for now and leave the rest. Because you’ll have so much left over, you can use it for the next  days, doing things like pulled pork Tacos, pulled pork sandwiches, even pulled pork with pasta! Deeelishus!
