Smoked Pork Butt
Pork butt or Boston butt, also known as pork shoulder, is the best cut of meat for making pulled pork. It's an inexpensive cut of meat and marbled with fat, which renders down perfectly during long and slow cooking, giving those sought-after juicy and tender notes and succulent strands of smoked pork.
Trimming the meat, rubbing in the spices and smoking is the timely bit, so allow yourself the best part of a day for this. Remember, low and slow yields the most succulent results.
What Goes on a Pulled Pork Sandwich?
For a killer combination, try pairing your pork with lashings of coleslaw, pickles, roasted bell peppers, sautéed mushrooms or caramelised onions.
