    Braised pulled pork

    Hello Pitmasters!

    I've just baught a nice boston butt and I'm having friends over tomorrow, unfortunately the weather here in Quebec is a little cold for the bbq right now, do you have any advice for a good pulled pork in the oven? Preferably with a non tomato based sauce, though it's ok if there is a little in it.

    I have experience with ribs in the oven, but ever since I've started reading this damned website, they just dont cut it anymore!

    Thanks in advance,


    Hello from Calgary!

    I know all about cold weather Qing, it eats charcoal like mad when it is -30 and blowing snow.

    If you can't smoke it, I would highly recommend cutting the butt into thinner strips and using either Meathead's Char Siu or Nine Dragon marinades:

    Roast the strips at 225 till they hit your target IT then give 'em a quick blast with the broiler to crisp them up. These are both fantastic recipes for coping with the brutal Canadian winter.

      Absolutely works very well with beer! Steamwhistle pairs brilliantly, as does Big Rock SAAZ as both of those are Czech style pilsners. Kung Fu girl reisling also pairs perfectly and keeps with the Asian theme.

      I don't know about the stout and IPA pairing perfectly, but if you drink enough pilsner first, everything will taste great!

      The other option is the Tuscan marinade, however I have not yet gotten around to trying this one yet: http://amazingribs.com/recipes/porkn...ated_ribs.html

      I think I'll try the tuscan one! I have all the ingredients and I've never had tuscan style pig before.

      Cool, let us know how it turns out!

    I have done oven pulled pork using a dutch oven. Apply rub like you would, heat oven to 200 degrees.
    Place butt in a dutch oven and "bake" overnight.

    Should be plenty humid in the dutch oven, no need to add liquid.

      Good to know, though this time I'll go for something a little different I believe!

    So it took some time for me to get them off my phone but I have pictures!

        I put the braising liquid in a bowl and we simply drizzled it over the meat afterwards!

    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
