Cuban-Style Barbecued Pulled Pork with Mojo Sauce on a Gas Grill
Published February 1, 2005.
Pulled pork can be made with a fresh ham or picnic roast, although our preference is for Boston butt. Preparing pulled pork requires little effort, but lots of time. Plan on 10 hours from start to finish: 3 hours with the spice rub, 1 hour to come to room temperature, 3 hours on the grill, 2 hours in the oven, and 1 hour to rest. Wood chunks, a traditional flavoring for pulled pork, is not traditional in this dish. You will need a disposable aluminum roasting pan that measures about 10 inches by 8 inches as well as heavy-duty aluminum foil and a brown paper grocery bag. Mojo sauce (see related recipe) is a citrus-flavored Cuban sauce. Rice with black beans is an excellent accompaniment to this dish.
