Pulled Pork Sandwiches

We are using S e v e n t e e n  pounds of pork today. Seriously? As soon as the alarm went out  that the Smoking Man was making pulled pork sandwiches, (who says texting is a good thing?) our “herd” of young adults were flying through the door like their jeans were on fire. They eat. Alot.
17 pounds of meat left us with little leftovers. Good thing someone around here enjoys cooking!
Please feel free to cut the recipe in half to suit your own “herds” needs.

Our Ingredients:

Pulled Pork Sandwich Ingredients

17. lb pork shoulder
1 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup sea salt
1/8 cumin
1/8 cup passilla chili powder *
1 T. granulated garlic
1 T. black pepper
1/2 T. onion powder

*Passilla is a dried, ground powder made from pasilla negro chiles. Pasillas are a a long, slender, dark dried chile. Mexican Pasilla chiles have an earthy flavor and are used in mole sauce as well as other Mexican sauces and stews . In California the ancho chile is called pasilla. The powder carries a medium heat. You can substitute dried Ancho chilie powder.

Water Bath Seasonings: (if your smoker comes with one)
Generous amounts of oregano,  chives, red pepper flakes, granulated garlic, paprika, basil, black pepper, and cider vinegar.


Rub meat generously, wrap in platic wrap and let sit refrigerated 6 to 12 hours.
