Pulled Pork
This simple pork recipe can be made with nearly any large pork roast. We prefer a pork shoulder, but you can also use a pork butt. The key is to use plenty of salt and cook it low and slow, and you'll have amazing, BBQ-style shredded pork so that you can customize any way you'd like.

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. Place pork in a oven-proof dish with a lid, like a Dutch oven. Rub salt generously all over the pork shoulder so that it's covered. This is important - the salt will help the pork "sweat" and cook in its own juices, so don't skimp.
  3. Place lid on the dish and put the pork in the heated oven. Cook for 4 hours. (If you're short on time, you can cook at 300 for 3 hours.)
  4. At the end of 4 hours, check the meat. It should shred easily. If not, place in the oven for a few more minutes and cook until it easily pulls apart.
  5. Make a simple vinegar sauce: mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with 2 tbsp. maple syrup or brown sugar. Spoon sauce over the shredded meat and serve.
