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!

Sticky Sweet Pulled Pork

This has to be one of the easiest and best tasting pulled pork recipes you'll ever try.



  1. Prep pork by cutting away excess fat.
  2. Dissolve brown sugar into vinegar. Fill turkey injector with solution. Inject throughout pork into thicker parts of the meat.
  3. Rub pork with BBQ spice rub and place in fridge for 30-90 minutes.
  4. Start smoker and remove pork from fridge.
  5. Place pork on the top level of the smoker. Close it up and let cook for 2 hours.
  6. After 2 hours check meat temperature by placing thermometer into thickest part. If it isn't 100 degrees put it back in until internal temperature reaches it.
  7. Once pork reaches 100 degrees start basting with grill glaze. Go lightly at first since you'll be doing this for a few hours.
  8. Continue cooking and basting until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
  9. Remove from smoker and place in a pan to rest. Once slightly cool begin pulling apart into shreds.
  10. Toss with remaining sauce and serve.

You'll need a turkey baster and smoker to make the most of this recipe.

Pulled Pork Tacos with Coleslaw and Lime

Pulled Pork Tacos with Coleslaw and Lime

If you're looking for a taco bar to go this is a great idea!



    Coleslaw
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together mayo, celery salt, BBQ Sweet Heat, rice vinegar and sugar.
  2. Add cabbage. Stir to combine and place in the fridge to cool.
    Pulled Pork
  1. Rub meat with BBQ Sweet Heat.
  2. Cook the meat by placing it into an uncovered pan on low heat in the oven, on low heat on the grill (coals on one side and meat on the other), or in a smoker. Cook for 5-6 hours.
  3. Cool and pull into bite sized pieces.
    Taco Bar
  1. Wrap corn or flour tortillas in foil and place on the grill to heat.
  2. Assemble a build your own taco bar with the pulled pork, tortillas, Sauce Goddess Sweet & Spicy Grill Glaze, coleslaw, shredded cheese (optional) and lime wedges.

Due to the long 6 hour cook time of the pork, you'll want to make it ahead of time and reheat when you are ready to serve. The pork shoulder slicing technique lessens the cooking time and imparts more rub flavor throughout the meat.

  6. In separate bowls put grated cheese, diced onions, and torn cilantro leaves.
    MAKE PIZZAS
  1. Build a fire on one side of your grill. Use the flame of your choice (I prefer Kingsford charcoal with a sprinkle of Hickory wood).
  2. When coals are hot take one tortilla and spread lightly with sauce. Place second tortilla on top and press together. Sprinkle a few hickory chips on coals just before you place tortillas on grill and toast one side being careful not to burn.
  3. Flip over and sprinkle with pulled pork, onions, and cheese. When toasted move to the side of grill without heat and close the top until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
  4. Drizzle Sweet and Spicy Grill Glaze over top, and sprinkle with cilantro.
