Perfect pulled pork year round

This oven method for cooking pulled pork is super easy to do any time of year. There is a still a nice “bark” on the outside as if it’s been in a smoker, but no smoky taste. It’s perfect for football watch parties or other big gatherings where people are serving themselves.

Oven Roasted Pulled Pork


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rub pork shoulder with 3 Tbsp of spice rub. Reserve one Tbsp for seasoning after the roast is "pulled".
  3. Place in roasting pan then into the oven.
  4. Flip the roast after 20 minutes and cook the other side for an additional 20 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to 250 and continue cooking for 6 hours.
  6. Check every hour and add 1/2 cup water or beer to the pan. This helps with cleanup and also provide a nice moist bath for the pork.
  7. Place thermometer in after 5 hours and make sure it's at least 165 degrees. Ovens can vary and yours may cook hotter or cooler than ours. Total cook time is between 7-9 hours.
  8. Once it's 170, pour 1/4 jar Sweet & Tangy Sauce over the meat and return to oven.
  9. Repeat saucing in one hour.
  10. Keep in oven until roast reaches 190 or can be pierced with a fork really easily.
  11. Once it is fully cooked, remove from the oven. The roasting pan should be fairly dry, use this for pulling the pork after it's rested.
  12. It should be saucy and glossy like in our picture.
  13. Cover tightly with foil and let rest 30 minutes.
  14. After 30 minutes, if the roast is bone-in, remove the bone at this time. It should pull out easily.
  15. Place the pork back into the roasting plan and easily pull the pork into shreds and chunks.
  16. Sprinkle remaining Sweet Heat spice rub over all. Drizzle remaining 1/2 jar of Sweet & Tangy sauce.
  17. Toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!

Sassy Saucy WRAP It Up Buffet Bar

This recipe is designed for that perfect Super Bowl Football Party. All the prep can be done ahead of time and then just set it out and let your guests assemble their very own wrap. These are small size but when they are full, they will fill you up for sure. Lay out all the following ingredients on big cutting board or platter. Give your guests place to assemble.


  • 10-12 " flour tortillas or wraps (for gluten free, use rice flour tortillas found in any store's gluten free section or large iceberg lettuce leaves)
  • whipped cheesy spread (see recipe)
  • rotisserie chicken (sliced in chunks)
  • pastrami slices
  • salami slices
  • dill pickles
  • sliced black olives
  • lettuce
  • bacon chutney (see recipe)
  • avocado
  • sliced tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes
  • spicy mustard dip (see recipe)

  1. Make cheesy spread, bacon chutney and mustard dip ahead of time and store in fridge.
  2. Can cut up all other ingredients and store in fridge.
  3. Can heat tortillas if you prefer but not required.
  4. Put everything out in a buffet layout for people to make their own wraps.

This recipe is mostly prep. Your guests will create the wrap themselves.

Suggest your guests start by slathering the cheesy spread on half the tortilla. Place chicken on the half without the cheese, then add toppings laying things like salami or pastrami slices on the cheesy side. Start by rolling the chicken side because the cheese spread helps "glue" the wrap together and keep the contents from falling out.
