NC Style Pulled Pork BBQ

Home version of the classic BBQ found in NC and southeastern VA. Great during the summer and year 'round.


5 to 7 lb boneless pork loin roast
kosher salt
fresh black pepper
wood chips or grilling plank (hickory is traditional but experiment)
2 cups cider vinegar
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup catsup


Rub salt and pepper into roast and place in smoker following directions, or in gas/charcoal grill over indirect medium heat. Use wood chips or grilling plank (soak either for half hour) to produce a smoky flavor. Smoke for 2 to 4 hours depending on your schedule and the size of the roast.

Make the BBQ sauce by mixing remaining ingredients well – let stand at least 10 minutes.

Transfer the roast to a Crock Pot, add about 1/4 cup of the sauce, cover and cook on low until roast is very tender and can be shredded with two forks back-to-back. Time depends on roast size and how long it cooked in the smoker. While shredding, add enough BBQ sauce to keep the shredded meat very moist. Alternate: slice pork and mix with sauce

Serves 6-8. Serve on white buns with additional sauce, favorite hot sauce, and cole slaw.
