Pulled Pork

The Injection

  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt finely ground
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire

The Rub

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup paprika
  • 1/3 cup garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


Inject each butt with approx. 6-8 oz of injection into all areas of the meat. Then liberally apply the rub to all sides of the meat, making sure it is rubbed in.

Place on the smoker at 225-250 degrees for about 6 hrs or until internal temp is about 165 degrees. After 4 hrs begin to spray with apple juice to keep moist.

After about 6 hrs take off smoker and place about ¾ cup of brown sugar on the outside of the butt and then double wrap in foil and place back on the smoker for 2-3 more hours until internal temp reaches 195-200 degrees.

Take off smoker and let rest for an hour or two in a cooler (no ice in the cooler).

Unwrap and remove blade bone and meat should fall apart. Pull and Enjoy.
