Easy Pulled Pork

Spread the love

We know how daunting the task of cooking several pounds of meat can be so we created our Easy Pulled Pork in times of need! The entire process takes anywhere from three to four hours, depending on the amount of meat you cook, but we've given you the ultimate steps to achieve the perfect pulled pork every time!

Slow Cooked Pork

The key to making sure it has been cooked long enough to be easily shredded by fork or hand is our cooking method! You'll first cook it covered to ensure a tender and moist meat, and then uncovered at a higher temperature to achieve a crispy outer coating. The internal temperature will be 190 degrees at its perfect level of cooked!  We've honed in on the correct cooking times for 8-10 pound pork shoulders, but if yours is significantly larger or smaller, you'll want to scale the cooking times accordingly.

If you can't tell from my face below, this Easy Pulled Pork has replaced Matthew as the love of my life. At this point we had brined it overnight and then rubbed it down with a simple, yet flavorful seasoning mix! While brining is optional it helps keep the meat moist, and when you're cooking meat for over three hours you don't want to end up with dried out meat!

Oven Pulled Pork

We got this bad boy perfectly cooked and pulled out after oven roasting it for four and a half hours. It was a long wait, but more than worth the end result. We opted to go with a brine and rub, but if you need a little sauce in your life our  Low Carb BBQ Sauce would pair great with this beast of a meat. You could even go a little crazy and use our Low Carb Rolls to make pulled pork sandwiches!
