8-10lbs.of Boston Butt (4-5lbs. each pork shoulder)

Dry Rub Barbecue Sauce

All you need for this Pulled Pork Barbecue is one or two 4-6lb. Boston Butts (commonly called Pork Shoulder), and some of your favorite Dry Rub and Barbecue Sauce.

After trimming off the excess fat, and lightly coating the pork with dry rub, smoke the Butt low and slow at 225f-250f for about 10-12 hours on your favorite Smoker.

When the internal temperature of the pork shoulder reaches around 180f-190f, remove from the fire and wrap it in plastic wrap or foil for about 45 minutes to an hour, so that it can rest. This allows the delicate flavor and juices to permeate the meat.

1 c. cornmeal (white or yellow)

1 c. flour

1/4 c. sugar

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1/4 c. soft shortening
