Pulled Pork

We are inviting my son's future in-laws for dinner. I would like to make pulled pork. This will be a first for me. I bought an 8 pound pork shoulder. Can someone give me a barbeque sauce recipe that will have a little tang but not blow the top of our heads off? Should it be marinated first?
All help will be welcome.

    Can I ask you this, with all of the good commercial sauces available are you wanting to make a sauce just to impress him?

    Blue's Hog Red would be an excellent choice.

    1 qt cider vinegar
    6 oz yellow mustard
    ¼ lb butter
    ¾ T salt
    ½ T black pepper
    ½ T cayenne
    Juice of ½ lemon
    ½ t sugar
    32 oz catsup

    Cook at a simmer for 10 minutes.

    I had some Blues Hog Red on some pulled pork 2 weeks ago and it one of the best sauces I have ever had. It was really good and perfect for pulled pork.

    If you visit the recipe page on my website, look under pork, and you will find Elder Ward's technique. It's a good starter. Good luck!

  • And while you're at it, why even cook the pork shoulder yourself? Just go to KFC and buy a bucket of chicken. Really?

    Good for you for making things fresh from scratch. Using prebottled is for the time limited and lazy. Two categories I fall into fairly often but I still manage to make my own on occassion. BBQ is easy.

    Mixing it with BH regular 50/50 is a nice flavor also.
