Dutch Oven Pulled Pork

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A wonderful oven-roasted BBQ pulled pork made with about any pork roast in a Dutch oven. Low and slow roasting up above the juices is the key. Serve by itself or on buns. I like mine with coleslaw and a root beer-BBQ sauce on multi-grain buns. Baked beans are a nice side dish, too."

  1. Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F (104 degrees C). Place a small rack inside a Dutch oven.
  2. Rub pork roast with barbecue spice rub and place on the rack in the prepared Dutch oven.
  3. Cover and cook in the preheated oven until roast is fork-tender, about 8 hours.
  4. Shred the roast with 2 forks and return meat to the Dutch oven with some of the roasting juices and a generous amount of barbeque sauce.
  5. Let simmer over medium heat for at least 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Using a rack inside the Dutch oven helps keep the roast out of the juices while cooking, and actually prevents it from drying out. If you don't have a rack, you can use an overturned disposable pie pan with holes pierced in it.
