Pulled Pork with Apples

Total Time:

8hrs 15mins





Skill Level:



  • 1 pork shoulder roast, boneless
  • 2 apples, fresh (cored and quartered)
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • sea salt, to taste
  • fresh ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Set roast on top of apples in a deep roasting pan. Season with salt & pepper.
  2. Mix your favourite barbecue sauce with equal parts water and pour over roast. Add hot water to the pan until liquid is 1” deep.
  3. Prepare grill for slow indirect-heat cooking by arranging coals on one side, leaving an area to cook the pork indirectly with no coals underneath.  When the grill reaches 200-225° F, scatter wood chips on top of the coals, close the grate and put the pork in the pan on the grill. Close lid. Cook for approximately 4-5 hours or until fork tender and meat reaches an internal temperature of 165-170° F.
  4. Remove pork from grill and wrap in foil. Return pork to grill for another 1-2 hours of cooking or until it reaches an internal temperature of 190-195° F and pulls apart easily.
  5. Let rest for 30-60 minutes off the heat.
  6. Transfer braising liquid to a measuring cup.
  7. Skim off the fat and reduce the sauce in a large sauce pot.
  8. Using two forks, break up the pork into bite-sized strand-like chunks.
  9. Serve tossed in sauce.
