Pulled Pork Sandwich

This is not my recipe...but it is SO good!! My favorite restaurant is Lucille's, which claims that it is traditional style southern barbecue. My girlfriend from Alabama was dually impressed when I took her for lunch, so on her word, it's a truly southern barbecue place! Anyway, this recipe is from Paula Dean, and it tastes JUST like the sandwich at Lucille's - a favorite of mine!


  • Dry rub:
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne
  • 4 pound shoulder pork roast
  • 2 cup apple juice 1
  • cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 6 soft hamburger buns with seeds
  • Bbq sauce
  • Cole slaw


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Mix the dry rub ingredients in small bowl. Sprinkle dry rub all over the pork roast, pressing into the pork. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. Combine liquid ingredients and the garlic powder in a medium bowl and pour into a large Dutch oven. Place pork in the oven and tightly cover with aluminum foil then lid. Roast for 4 hours or until fork tender and shreds easily. Brush the roast with cooking liquid every hour.
  4. Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to handle. Shred the pork with a fork or tongs into bite size pieces.
  5. Serve on hamburger buns topped with BBQ sauce and cole slaw.
