It’s a long weekend! And the last thing you want to worry about is slaving away in a hot kitchen. We have a super easy and delectable BBQ Pulled Pork, and the best part? You don’t need an smoker or a grill. All you need is an oven!
We love BBQ Pulled Pork, and this recipe is great because there isn’t much you have to do. Rub the pork down and cook that bad boy and that’s it. While you party, the oven does virtually all the work for you!
Easy Oven Pulled Pork
- 1 3 to 5 pound pork shoulder/butt
- 1 Bottle of your favorite BBQ seasoning
- Garlic Salt
- 1 1/2 Cups Orange Juice
- 1 to 2 Cups BBQ Sauce
- 1 Large Lime
Rinse and dry your dry pork shoulder using paper towels.
Squeeze your lime over the pork and sprinkle the entire pork with about half the bottle of seasoning and a smidgen of salt. Don’t forget to rub the seasonings into the pork, give the pork a mini massage before you let it sit overnight.
Try and let the pork marinade OVERNIGHT to get the most amount of flavor.
About an hour before you’re ready to put the pork in the oven, take the pork out and let it come to room temperature.
Preheat the oven to 500°F.
While the oven is heating up, mix together the orange juice and 1 cup of BBQ sauce in a large roasting pan.
Place the pork shoulder in the roasting pan, and using a brush, brush the pork with the remaining BBQ sauce.
Cook the pork in the oven for 20 minutes.
Remove the pork from the oven and turn the heat down to 300°F, and cover the pork. Cook for 5 to 6 hours or until the pork is tender and falling apart. Shred using two forks (or your hands if cool enough) and serve with your favorite BBQ sauce.
