What you will need

  • 2.5kg Boneless Pork Shoulder

  • 2 x Jug of Water (or beer/cider if it takes your fancy!)

  • 3 Tbsp Tex Rub

  • Salt


Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 4 – 8 hours

Serves: 8 – 10


1) Pre-heat oven to 150 C fan/130 C gas.

2) Rub Tex Rub all over the Pork Shoulder massaging it in as much as you can

3) Put Pork in a large pot/casserole dish suitable for the oven

4) Pour over water/beer/cider so that meat is submerged.

5) Cover with lid & cook for between 4 – 8 hours until the meat is falling apart (be careful to check on the pot to ensure enough liquid in the pot)

6) Take out of the oven & carefully remove the meat from pot, placing on a separate dish/board to cool slightly – leave the remaining liquid in the pot.

7) Skim the top of the liquid to remove any excess fat.

8) Add a good amount of quality BBQ sauce to the pot, mix & slowly reduce down on a hob until you’ve got a good saucey texture for the pulled pork.

9) While sauce is reducing, carefully remove skin from the pork & shred apart using 2 forks – be extra careful to throw away excess fat from the meat

NOTE: do not “over-pull” the meat, it’s not tuna…

10) Once pork is pulled add it back to the saucey pot & mix thoroughly so that the meat is soaked in the sauce & flavour

11) Add salt, Tex rub & BBQ sauce to taste
