Hawaiian Pulled Pork
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 6 hours 30 minutes
|Bone-in Pork Shoulder|
|2 oz.||Notorious P.I.G. Pulled Pork Rub|
|1||Red Onion, sliced thinly|
|1/2||Pineapple, peeled & sliced into rounds|
|Big Kahuna Pineapple Teriyaki|
- Place pork shoulder on a sheet tray and use a knife to score the top and bottom in a cross-hatch pattern.
Season the pork shoulder with Notorious P.I.G. Set aside.
- Preheat the grill to 250 F.
- Set the pork shoulder directly on the grill grate, over indirect heat. Place a shallow pan containing a 1:4 ratio of cider vinegar to water next to the pork shoulder. Smoke the pork shoulder for 3 hours.
- After 3 hours, remove the pan from the grill, and transfer the pork to a deep cast iron pan, or disposable aluminum pan. Place ½ of the sliced onion and ½ of the pineapple rounds on the bottom of the pan, then set the pork on top.
Pour Big Kahuna on top of the pork, then the remaining onion and pineapple. Add the water along the side of the pork, then cover with a tight fitting lid, or tent with heavy duty aluminum foil. Increase the temperature of the grill to 300 F, and allow pork shoulder to braise for 3 to 3 ½ hours, until pork is tender and is easily pulled with tongs.
- Remove the pork from the grill, remove the pineapple, then pull the pork directly in the pan, tossing with the onions and sauce reduction. Serve warm.
