Ingredients
For the rub
For the mop sauce
For the BBQ sauce
Slaw (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your smoker for indirect smoking at 250 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the rub and apply liberally on all sides of the pork shoulder. Place the rubbed shoulder in the smoker and close the lid.
  3. In a glass bowl, combine all the ingredients for the mop sauce. Apply the mop sauce to the pulled pork every hour. Smoke the pork shoulder, while mopping hourly, for 8-10 hours or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 200 degrees F.
  4. Remove the shoulder from the smoker, cover tightly with foil, and allow to rest for an hour before shredding and serving.
  5. Make that BBQ sauce! In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients for the BBQ sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes. Cool completely and set aside to serve with the pork. If you want to make the slaw, pour about a cup of the BBQ sauce over the shredded cabbage in a large bowl and toss gently to combine.
  6. Remove the shoulder from the foil and shred. Discard the bone and any gristly pieces and pull the rest of the meat into shreds. Moisten the meat with some of the BBQ sauce and mix together. Serve with buns, slaw and additional BBQ sauce.
