Pulled Pork/slow cooked pork shoulder

I would like to do a pulled pork recipe - preferably mexican so I can serve with tortillas. Not sure whether to use a whole shoulder boned and rolled or shoulder steaks.

Has anyone got some recipes they can suggest.

Thanks.

pork shoulder

I'd use a whole piece, unrolled so you can get the flavour into it. If you have a piece with rind & you want crackling, then you will need to cook it first at 220 deg then turn it down to slow cook it. You can do any combo of spices you like - mix together with a little oil & mashed garlic before rubbing into the meat. I have a real meat co recipe that uses 6 dried chillies, 10 garlic cloves, 100g fennel seeds, juice 5 lemons, 3 TBS olive oil - for 3 kg pork on bone. Pulverise everything & rub into pork. Start by 220 def until skin blisters, then turn to 130 for 12 hrs. I have cooked at 150 for 5 or 6 hrs though & it is fine like that too.

Pulled pork

Pulled pork is wonderful you will love it . I use a big piece of pork shoulder. I don't bother with cracking as the main thing I am after is the meat , so the whole thing gets covered fairly in foil and put in the oven for 6 hours at least . You can cover it in a mix of spices first , Chillie and paprika go well , a nice smoky taste, you can make slits in the meat and really rub the spices in or make a paste with spices and garlic . It will literally fall apart you just pull it apart with forks .
