Pulled Pork

INGREDIENTS

  • Chairman’s Reserve® Meats Pork Shoulder
  • 1 tbsp. Black peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp. Yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp. Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. Coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. Fennel seeds
  • 1/3 cup Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup Paprika
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup White sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Gochugaru
  • 1 tsp. Chipotle powder
  • 2 tsp. Granulated garlic
  • Apple cider for spritzing
  • Kimchi juice for finishing

METHOD

  1. Toast the peppercorns, mustard, cumin, coriander, and fennel seeds on a dry skillet at medium heat for a few minutes until aromatic. Remove from heat and allow them to cool.
  2. Add to a spice grinder and grind to a medium coarseness. Combine with the rest of the spices to make the seasoning blend.
  3. Preheat the smoker to 265°F. Season the pork shoulder on all sides generously with the rub. Place it in the smoker and let it cook for 3 hours undisturbed.
  4. After 3 hours have passed, spritz with apple cider vinegar every 45 minutes for the next 5 hours.
  5. When the fat cap has started to split and it’s been about 8 hours total, spritz one final time and wrap with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Increase the heat to 285°F in the smoker and cook for another 2 hours, or until it’s about 200°F internal temperature.
  6. Remove the pork shoulder and keep it in the foil while it rests for an hour. Shred when ready to serve with the sauce and slaw on sandwiches.
