Slow-Barbecued Pork for a Crowd

This traditional pulled pork recipe requires a couple of days advanced prep, and a few hours on the grill, but the flavor of the marinated and slow-cooked pork is well worth it.

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless fresh pork butts (3 lbs. each)
  • 8 cups barbecue sauce, divided

  • Heat grill to a slow, consistent heat.
  • Place marinated pork, fat sides up, on the grill and close the lid. Cook over slow heat for 3 hours, then begin basting with sauce occasionally. Turn pork and cook until internal meat temperature reaches 180°F.
  • Remove pork from grill and allow to cool slightly. Pull pork apart with fork and chop with knife. Serve warm, on rolls, with remaining barbecue sauce on the side.
