Creating the perfect barbecue pulled pork is an art, a symphony of flavors and textures that dance on your taste buds. Imagine tender, succulent shreds of slow-cooked pork infused with the smoky aroma of the grill and drenched in a rich, tangy barbecue sauce. This Lip-Smacking BBQ Pulled Pork recipe is a journey into the heart of American barbecue traditions, a dish that speaks of lazy summer evenings and gatherings with friends and family.


  • 3 lbs pork shoulder, bone-in
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Start by seasoning the pork shoulder generously with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and cumin. Let it sit for at least an hour to absorb the flavors.
  2. Preheat your grill or smoker to 225°F. Place the pork shoulder on the grill and smoke it for about 2 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°F.
  3. While the pork is smoking, prepare the barbecue sauce. In a saucepan, combine the barbecue sauce, chicken broth, brown sugar, minced garlic, and simmer over medium heat until it thickens slightly.
  4. Once the pork reaches 160°F, transfer it to a baking dish and pour the barbecue sauce mixture over the top. Cover the dish tightly with foil and return it to the grill. Continue cooking for another 2-3 hours, or until the pork is tender and shreds easily with a fork.
  5. Remove the pork from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Using two forks, shred the meat into delectable, bite-sized pieces.
