The trick to fork-tender pulled pork is slow cooking and a low temperature with plenty of moisture. Steam is crucial to a tender juicy texture! Rub the pork butt the day before and refrigerate overnight for the flavors to really set in. Be sure to use a Dutch oven or slow cooker for this recipe to ensure the meat stays moist and juicy!

  • 1 Tbsp salt
