Directions

  1. Place pork shoulder in a large pot and add enough apple cider to cover. Combine white sugar, brown sugar, salt, paprika, onion powder, black pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl. Mix about 1/4 cup sugar rub into cider; reserve remaining rub.
  2. Cover pot and refrigerate for 12 hours.
  3. Prepare smoker to about 210 degrees F (99 degrees C). Add enough wood chips to smoker.
  4. Pour cider brine into the water pan of the smoker; add onion and about 1/4 cup more sugar rub. Spread remaining rub over pork shoulder. Transfer pork to the center of smoker.
  5. Smoke pork until very tender, about 8 hours. Monitor hickory chips and liquid, adding more wood and water, respectively, as needed. Transfer pork to a large platter and cool for 30 minutes before shredding with forks.

Tried this recipe tonight after marinating overnight. Simple, worked well, very tasty and was told the taste was restaurant quality. When making the sandwich, just placed the pork in a roll, covered in BBQ sauce and instead of tomatoes or lettuce (which you wouldn't normally use), garnished with coleslaw on top. Excellent. I can't wait to make it again. Thanks Bob for sharing!

Amazing flavor, everyone loved it. We ate this on buns with a homemade whiskey BBQ sauce. We used Jack Daniels brand chips (just for the heck of it, definitely didn't harm it any.) My only regret - we don't have any left!

Great Rub. I am going to try it on chicken.
