Pulled Pork | Basics with Babish


This video was sponsored by National Pork Board. Visit pork.org/cooking to learn more.
With summer (hopefully?) right around the corner, backyards across the nation and the world are poised to get lost in a haze of blue smoke. Pulled pork can be a daunting task for a newcomer to the world of slow-and-low barbecue, but with some help from The National Pork Board, we'll make a pitmaster of you yet.

    I have to say....what you did here is closer to the superior of the two NC barbecues, Western NC barbecue, which I can appreciate. Eastern NC traditionally would use meat from all parts of the pig, mixed together. That said, using honey or molasses in the Western NC barbecue sauce would have added more depth of flavor than brown sugar. Also, forget the potato bun. You need to put it on a buttermilk biscuit. Smoked pulled pork with Western NC barbecue sauce on a buttermilk biscuit is really the only way I can stand eating pork at all. - Sincerely, someone living in NC

    What would happen if you didnt use so much sugar? I’m not a fan of how sugary US food can be and vastly prefer salty over sweet. How terrible would the spice mix be without all that sugar? Is it only there to carmalize the outside?

    It might be a regional thing, but most coleslaws I have had in North Carolina (I grew up here, for the most part) contain mayonnaise to some capacity. Grew up in the Piedmont and now live in the far northwestern portion of the state, so if it's an Eastern thing to exclude it that would make sense.

    Sauces were definitely on point, also! I like a mixture of the two just because I enjoy the spiciness and tanginess of the eastern style with the viscosity of the western style.

    sous-vide and then the oven is how I do my pulled pork and it is amazing if you don't have a smoker. If you don't have time to do an overnight sous-vide then another option that does a great job is a slow cooker, pop your rubbed pork shoulder in the slow cooker with a few cups of stock, some onion, garlic and then 8 hours on high. You won't get the nice bark but once pulled and put on a roll it will taste just the same.

    Solid though I would highly recommend a mustard rub down or even (and this is where people gasp) a mayo rub down before the dry rub. It is a minor difference that results in incredible flavor as the rubs have a stronger, bounded presence and provide a stronger bark.
