BBQ Low And Slow Smoky Pork Shoulder

BBQ Low And Slow Smoky Pork Shoulder

Yaassssss… I love a bit of BBQ.. this is the real deal.. the flavoured rub along with the applewood chips gives this tender, juicy pork the smokiest intense flavour. So perfect in a taco, in a salad, grilled veg, or put it in a soft roll true American style with homemade BBQ sauce and coleslaw!

This pork freezes too well. Tightly wrap leftovers in foil and use them within a couple of months. It is almost better than eating it when you make the enchiladas you make the next day with the leftovers. Watch this space for tomorrow’s enchilada recipe!!
