Top 10 Pulled Pork Recipes

The best and most popular Pulled Pork Recipes at Barbecue & Grilling


Pulled Pork is probably the purist form of barbecue. This Southern Barbecue tradition originated with whole hogs cooked in pits, sometimes for days, shredded by hand and served up on plain white bread. Variations abound from here with all manner of sauces, rubs and cole slaws (typically served on top of the meat in a sandwich). Today most pulled pork is prepared with pork shoulder roasts known as a picnic or a Boston Butt. However you like it, these pulled pork recipes make a great meal.
