Pulled Pork is American BBQ at it's best, but is easy to do in an oven as well if you follow our simple recipe. This can store in the fridge afterwards, and seems to keep getting better for days.

PREP TIME: 10 min
COOK TIME: 6 hours


  • 1.8kg Pork Shoulder Joint (skin on)
  • 30g Kansas City Rib Rub or
    30g Memphis Belle
  • 20g Salt
  • 50ml Barbecue Sauce


        1. Prepare the pork joint the night before cooking by rubbing the meat with the spice rub. Make sure to get into all the nooks and crannies, but don't waste it on the skin, which will be being discarded
        2. Rub the salt over the skin
        3. Place in the middle of an oven at 145 ℃ for 5 hours
        4. After 5 hours, remove the joint from the oven, peel off the skin, score the fat underneath with a knife and smother with barbecue sauce. Place back in the oven for a further hour, turning the temperature up to 190 ℃ for the final 15 minutes
        5. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before shredding with forks
        6. Pour over any juices from the cooking pan and mix thoroughly
        7. Serve with crusty rolls and more barbecue sauce

          Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.

          This dip is so easy to make and can be flavoured with many different rubs. For a more traditional houmous replace the rub with 1 tsp ground cumin.

          Stollen is made in Germany at Christmas time. These stollen bites make great treats over the festive period, but also go down well over the rest of the year as well!
