  • 3-5 pound pork shoulder roast

  • *Quick Marinade*
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Adobo Sauce from La Morena Chipotle Peppers
  • *Dry Rub*
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 2 Teaspoon Ground Mustard Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • *Barbecue Sauce*
  • 1 Cup Ketchup
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar packed
  • 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon Worchestire Sauce
  • 1 Chipotle Pepper finely minced or run through food processor
  • 1 Teaspoon Adobo Sauce from Peppers
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey


  • Bring roast to room temp for about an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 250ºF.
  • With a knife, stab roast all over, 20 - 30 slits.
  • Mix together 1 tablespoon adobo sauce from peppers and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar. Rub all sides of roast with liquid mixture - massaging into holes. Use all of liquid mixture. Let roast rest for 5 minutes.
  • Mix spices together. Rub down roast with spice mixture, rub all sides and into holes. Use all of spice rub.
  • Place pork roast into appropriate sized roasting pan. I use the disposable aluminum type - goes straight from oven to grill and there's no clean up.
  • Pour ½ cup apple cider vinegar into pan. Bake covered, basting a few times, at 250ºF for 6-8 hrs or until roast is tender and pulls apart easily with fork. Remove from oven.
  • Heat up grill or turn oven heat up to broil.
  • Shred roast with two forks. Discard any large chunks of fat. Small pieces of fat and juices from meat should stay in.
  • Drizzle about 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce (recipe to follow) over pulled pork and toss.
  • Grill or broil pork until it browns enough to your liking and most of the liquid is reduce. I stir the meat a few times to distribute all the juices so nothing dries out. Pay attention to the pork, making sure nothing burns.
  • Serve on rolls, drizzle with lots of BBQ sauce and enjoy!
  • *Barbecue Sauce*
  • Combine ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, minced chipotle peppers, adobo sauce from chipotle peppers, salt and spices in a medium saucepan.
  • Bring sauce to a simmering bubble over med/low heat, stirring often.
  • Reduce heat to low, simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in honey, let simmer for a minute or two.
  • Remove from heat and enjoy! Store leftovers in fridge. Makes about 1 1/4 cup sauce.
