BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

  • Yield: 10 servings ( Serving Size: 1 sandwich )
  • Prep time: 30 Minutes
  • Cook time: 6 Hours


  • 1 pork shoulder roast (6-8 lbs.)
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) oil (vegetable, olive or canola)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) salt
  • 2 tablespoon(s) garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon(s) ground red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon(s) dried thyme
  • *1 bottle(s) your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 10-12 sandwich buns


Remove the pork from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Blend seasonings in a small bowl. Pat the roast w/ oil. Season the roast well on all sides with blended seasonings. Place the seasoned pork in a dutch oven, fat/skin side up. Cover and bake for 4 hours.

Remove cover from the roast and continue to bake about 2 hours longer, until the roast is very tender and will pull apart easily with a fork.

Remove the pork from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. Remove any excess fat or drippings from the roast and discard if desired. Using 2 forks, shred the pork into bite-sized pieces.

Once shredded, start adding BBQ sauce, bit by bit. Best to stir in about 1/4 of a bottle at a time, continuing to desired consistency.

*Depending on how saucy you like your pork, you may want to use more than 1 bottle.
