Pulled Pork

One of the meals for the Nauvoo trip was pulled pork sandwiches. We decided it would be prudent to cook the meat ahead of time and then freeze it until we needed it, so that's what we did. I didn't have a favorite recipe, so I looked online and here's what we came up with, after combining several different recipes.

Pulled Pork Rub

1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons cracked pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon mustard powder

Combine all the ingredients and rub them all over a pork roast. Place in roasting pan and bake at 275° for 6-7 hours.
Let cool a bit and then shred with two forks. (Or let cool even more and shred with your fingers.)
Bag and freeze. When ready to serve, thaw and heat with your favorite barbecue sauce. Serve on hamburger buns. Delicious!

Once again, some day we'll have to make this again so we can take a picture of the final product! We didn't think about it while we were busy in Nauvoo.
