When my husband and I were asked what we wanted for our wedding dinner, both of us said in unison “pulled pork”! Unfortunately, Smokin’ Mary Bloody Mary Mix was just a twinkle, so ours wasn’t as smokin’ as this recipe, but it’s equally appropriate for any occasion, even a back yard wedding.
Smokin’ Mary Pulled Pork
- 5-8 pounds Pork Butt (or shoulder) roast
- 1 bottle of Smokin’ Mary Mix
- 1 cup of straight Bourbon
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp of dry mustard
- 1/2 cup of molasses
- 1 cup of chopped red onions
In a air tight bag (FoodSaver/Ziploc) place the roast and the Smokin’ Mary Mix , seal and then put in fridge for 1 day.
Set smoker to 175 degrees.
Pull roast from bag and place onto smoker for 6-8 hrs.
Take mix and from bag, pour it into a medium sauce pan, add Bourbon, brown sugar, mustard, molasses and onions. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and reduce to 1/2.
Cool, cover and place in fridge until later.
Once the roast reaches 190 degrees, remove it from smoker and let cool.
Shred roast; reheat sauce and then mix together.
If you want a killer pulled pork sandwich, serve on two waffles with bread and butter pickles, maple syrup and sharp cheddar cheese. Yum!
