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.

Hawaiian Chicken and Bacon Skewers

This recipe is a great version of traditional Hawaiian style skewers with an added tweak – bacon! Sauce Goddess Sweet & Tangy Mop Sauce brings together the pineapple and pepper flavors into a mouthwatering tangy treat. It’s versatile enough for most any kind of meat, so if you’re in the mood for steak or just want to double up on the pork mix them in or swap out for the chicken.

Hawaiian Chicken and Bacon Skewers

  • 8 skewers (if they are wood, soak for 30 minutes in water)
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 lbs chicken, boneless skinless thighs are nice and moist
  • 3/4 cup Sauce Goddess Sweet & Tangy Marinade and Mop sauce
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into chunks then separated into slices
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks

    Chicken Prep
  1. Cut chicken into 1-2 inch cubes.
  2. Place Sweet & Tangy sauce into a zip top bag and add chicken chunks.
  3. Remove most of the air and zip closed.
  4. Place in fridge overnight.
    Skewer Creation
  1. Start each skewer by first adding a pepper slice and then an onion slice.
  2. Add one end of a strip of bacon (one per skewer). Do "NOT" move the bacon down the skewer. You need to move it only far enough to get another ingredient on so it will be tightly woven.
  3. Add the chicken then move down slightly and add pineapple, onion and pepper.
  4. Gently stretch the bacon and run the skewer thru it a second time.
  5. Continue with chicken, onions, pineapple and pepper, weaving one strip of bacon every 2 " or so.
  6. Heat your grill to 300 at most.
  7. Place skewers on the grill and cook slowly to make sure the bacon and chicken are both cooked completely.
    Optional Added Tanginess
  1. Baste with fresh Sweet & Tangy Mop sauce as desired while the skewers are cooking.

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Interesting twist on the traditional grilled skewers.


    Marinade
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or gluten free tamari
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or minced very fine (using a microplane is best)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup of Sauce Goddess Sticky Sweet Sauce (you can use Sweet & Spicy or Sweet Red Devil if you want)
    Skewers
  • 2 lbs pork loin or tenderloin, cut into 2” cubes
  • 1 red pepper cut into 2” pieces
  • 1 sweet onion cut into 2 “ pieces
  • 8 skewers

    Marinade
  1. In a bowl with a lid, mix the first 5 ingredients. Stir to combine. Taste for seasoning. If you like more salt, add more soy. If you like more tart flavors, add more vinegar. This is the time to adjust, before we place raw meat into the bowl.
  2. Pour off ½ cup of he liquid into a bowl for basting while grilling. That way this liquid won’t have any raw meat juices.
  3. Place the pork and veggies into container. Tighten the lid and shake to combine. Place in the fridge to marinade for 30-60 minutes.
    Skewers
  1. Preheat grill on medium heat.
  2. Place items on skewers alternating veggies and meat. Discard marinating liquid.
  3. Place skewers on the grill.
  4. Baste (with reserve marinade) and turn over as they brown. 3 to 4 times per skewer gets a nice even coat of sauce and browning.
  5. When the meat is done to 160 or fairly firm to the touch, remove from the grill.
  6. Serve with rice if desired.
