Ultimate Book Of Bbq Mustard Barbecued Pork

If you’re a fan of South Carolina-style mustard-sauced barbecue, this simple pulled pork is the recipe for you. Start it first thing in the morning and let the slow cooker do the work for you.

Yield: 10-12 servings

Total time: 8 hours and 35 minutes


1?3 cup of firmly packed light brown sugar

2½ teaspoons of table salt

1½ teaspoons of garlic powder

1½ teaspoons of paprika

1 teaspoon of onion powder

½ teaspoon of ground red pepper

1 4- to 5-pound bone-in pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), trimmed

1 cup of yellow mustard

1?3 cup of honey

1?4 cup of apple cider vinegar

1½ teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce


Stir together the brown sugar and the next five ingredients. Rub the mixture over the pork roast. Place the roast in a lightly greased 6-quart slow cooker.

Whisk together the yellow mustard and remaining three ingredients. Pour the mixture over the roast.

Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours (or on high 4-6 hours) or until the meat shreds easily with a fork. Let the pork stand 15 minutes then shred it with two forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Stir until the sauce is incorporated.
