Successful Elder Ward Pulled Pork
I made pulled pork this weekend on my BGE and couldn't be happier with how it turned out. So happy that I am making my first post! It was 2 pork shoulders - 8.5lbs & 6.5lbs. I followed the Elder Ward rub recipe and general cooking method. I tried to follow his philosophy to setup correctly and then you can move on with you life while it cooks...unfortunately, I thought about it with total obsession. Hopefully next time I will be a little more confident & can relax.
All rubbed up and ready to rest
Resting for 2 hours
Ready to go - 6:30PM on Friday
Done deal...12:30PM on Saturday - 18 hours @ 250 dome temp indirect
(what looks like a mouse on the grill is my pit thermometer clipped onto a lava rock)
I double wrapped them in extra strength foil 2 times and put them in a cooler for 2 hours.
Ready to pull @ 2:30PM
After pulling I mixed in a very light mixture of the The Traditional North Carolina Sauce & stock.
Ready to eat @ 3PM on Saturday
