Outstanding Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwiches
1 whole pork butt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBS kosher salt
2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Mix together in a bowl and set aside.
BBQ Sauce (I highly recommend doubling recipe)
3 cups chicken stock
1 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup chopped tomato
3 TBS minced sweet onion
2 TBS minced pitted dates
1 TBS minced garlic
Mix together in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer and reduce until you have 1-/2 cups of sauce. Set aside.
Poke the butt all over with a knife so the rub can seep into the holes. Rub the butt with mixture and place in a large resealable bag. Keep leftover rub for the next day. Let rest in the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, spray a roasting pan with oil. Re-rub the roast again with leftover mixture and let sit in the roasting pan at room temperature for 2 hours.
PREHEAT oven to 250 degrees.
Roast in the center of the oven, uncovered, for 8 to 9 hours. It will be falling apart tender and the center should read 195 to 200 degrees.
