For the Pulled Pork:

For the BBQ Sauce:


  • Cut pork shoulder into 3-4 inch sections. Rub pork shoulder in mustard, rub, and salt. Let sit for 1 hour up to 24 hours.
  • In a large dutch oven over high heat add oil. Working in batches sear pork.
  • Add all the pork back into the pot and add the bourbon and chicken stock.
  • Set the oven to 300F and cook until pork shreds easily with a fork, about 3-4 hours.
  • To make the BBQ sauce heat a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining BBQ sauce ingredients and let simmer on medium low for at 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Shred the pork and toss in 1 cup of BBQ sauce. Serve on a toasted bun with pickle slices and extra BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
