My first attempt at pulled pork. We have a Traeger that uses Hickory pellets so I skipped the first step. Started the grill at 225 degrees and put the roast right on the grill. Basted the meat with apple juice (about 1/3 cup) at the top of each hour, then 10-15 minutes after the 3rd basting, put the roast on a foil pan to collect the juices, and turned the grill up to 250 degrees. Total cooking time worked out to be 6 hours. Rested the meat for 20 minutes, then pulled it. Tender, moist, and wonderful smoke flavor to the meat. I would definitely do this for a party. There is enough meat here for a crowd for sure!

This was very easy and extremely tasty - especially the rub. I cooked in an electric smoker on the middle rack at 250 degrees adding chips every 1/2 hour for the first 3 hours, after that, I removed wood chips and cooked another 2 hours, by then the internal temp was 170 degrees. I wrapped in foil and cooked 1 additional hour., served with a Carolina Vinegar Sauce - will be making again for Labor Day party - yum!
