In this Easy Smoked Pulled Pork Recipe, we will teach you how to BBQ Pork Shoulder Picnic Roast on the grill to pull into pulled pork. This incredible BBQ Pulled Pork is simple to do and tastes great! We made this on the Weber Kettle grill, but you can also do this on any other type of grill using the indirect cooking method or the slow n sear. Everything you need to know is below.

ITEMS USED – (Recipe Below)

Slow N Sear Plus (for 22’’ Kettle Grills)

Weber Performer Grill (USA) (CDN)

Weber Kettle (classic) (USA) (CDN)



Napoleon Professional 5 Piece tool set (USA) (CDN)

Old Hickory Knife – 10in (USA) (CDN)


2 – 7lb Pork Shoulders (picnic roast or butt roast)
Kosher Salt – 1/2 tsp per lb


Step #1
First you will need to prepare your Pork Shoulder picnic roast by trimming off the heavy fat on the outside, this will allow us to get a better bark later on. Once your pork shoulder is trimmed you are going to do a dry for 24-48 hours using a ratio of 1/2 tsp of kosher salt per pound of meat.

Step #2
After your pork shoulder is dry brined, you are going to apply some oil as a binder followed by a generous coating of BBQ Rub. NOTE: If you have already dry brined your pork make sure there is little or no salt in the BBQ rub you use so that you don’t over salt. Once that is done you will then place it onto the grill opposite the Coals and begin cooking at 250 degrees until it reaches 203 Internal Tempreture.

Step #3
Half way though your cook when the pork roast reaches around 150-160 degrees we are going to remove it from the grill and wrap it in a double layer of foil. This will help speed up the cook a bit as well as help tenderize the meat. After it’s been wrapped you are going to place it back on the grill and continue cooking until around 203 (for us it was about 8 hours)

Step #4
When your pork has reached 203 you will check it to see if it’s probe tender. If it is remove it from the grill and let it rest 1-2 hours in a feux cambo or even in it’s foil. This is help further tenderize the meat.

Step #5
After about 9.5 hours total this pork shoulder is done and ready to be pulled and boy is is going to be tender!

That’s it, Enjoy.

    Do you always cut the extra fat off the bottom? I did a full shoulder and there is a significant amount of fat, but some people seem to leave it on? I tried to remove it after cooking before pulling but lost a good bit of bark as a result. Any suggestion?
