To make pulled pork:
- 1 Boneless Pork Shoulder (1 – 1.5 Kg)
- 1 Tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- Salt and pepper
- 500 ml apple cider
- 4 burger buns
To make the barbecue sauce:
- 75 ml apple cider vinegar
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 TBSP soft brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco
- 200 ml water
- 1 heaped teaspoon paprika
To the coleslaw:
- 1 finely chopped red onion
- 1 small, shredded cabbage
- 2 carrots, shredded
- 6 Tbsp Mayonnaise – Homemade is the best!
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- Start by heating up the barbecue! First, add lots of charcoal to the grill. Then wait for the temperature to be at the right temperature to cook. The coals should be white by this time, which can take around 20 minutes. To serve as a drip pan, an aluminum pan should be placed inside your grill. Make sure that the charcoal is pushed to one side of your grill, and that the aluminum pan is flat on its bottom. Next, place another aluminum pan on the BBQ grill and cover it with water. This will ensure that the grill is moistened and maintains a high temperature. This should be kept topped up throughout cooking. You can start your pulled pork while the BBQ heats.
- To taste, rub the pork joint with brown sugar, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Make sure that your entire shoulder is covered.
- Place the pork shoulder on the grill directly above the drip pan. The indirect heat will cook the pork shoulder so make sure to place it far from any burning charcoals. Cover the pan and allow it to cook. This will cook the pork for approximately 4 to 5 hours. To maintain the right temperature, turn the pork frequently and fill the water pan.
- Make the BBQ sauce while the pork is cooking. In a saucepan, combine the ketchup and soy sauce with apple cider vinegar. Add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and Tabasco. Add the water to the saucepan and bring the mixture back to boil.
- Stir in the paprika and let it simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally until it thickens. Allow it to cool completely.
- Next make the coleslaw. Next, mix the carrots, red onion and cabbage with the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
- Check the pork after 4 hours. When the pork is done, it should be at 85 C. When it reaches this temperature, take it off the grill.
- Two forks are needed to pull the pork. Mix the shredded meat and 3/4 of the BBQ sauce. To finish, add the rest of the BBQ sauce to the burger buns. Add the pulled pork and some coleslaw.
