What is Pulled Pork?
Pulled Pork is a staple of Southern cooking, particularly in the Carolinas, where chefs have perfected the art of barbecue.
This tender, fatty, and flavorful meat is usually made with pork shoulder sometimes referred to as pork butt, Boston shoulder, or picnic shoulder.
Making sensational pulled pork requires smoking the pork shoulder over low heat for a long period of time. This slowly softens the connective tissue, making it so tender that it practically falls apart before it even needs to be “pulled.”
History of Pull Pork
The process of smoking pork was created when the Spanish settlers first arrived in the United States. They watched natives building a smoky fire underneath their game, and took notice of how the process kept bugs away and preserved the meat. This is said to be the first known barbecue process. Over time, the process evolved, with the migration of Africans and Europeans to the South. Pigs became a main source of meat for people in the Southern colonies, due to their cheap price tag and easy maintenance.
