What to Use For Pulled Pork


Pull pork Meat

Pork Butt

Fresh Pork Shoulder

When preparing pulled pork it is similar to pot roasting, the slower you cook it and the lower the heat the better it will turn out.   I highly recommend using a pork butt for pulled pork, this slow cooking method will allow this cut to really show off with tenderness, flavor and juiciness.  Pork butt is the equivalent of a chuck cut in pork.  This means a little more fat but also a lot more flavor.  Allow one half pound of boneless meat per person when sizing your roast.  Fresh pork shoulder can also be used for those that are looking for a leaner solution but it has more waste in bone and skin and will not be as moist.
