In Need of Pulled Pork Basics

sivyaleah | Jul 1, 2006 06:52 PM

So, hubbie and are are getting ready to check out of the grocery this morning, and suddenly it occurs to me that I've always wanted to try making pulled pork. It's one of both of our favorites things.

So, we head back over to the butcher counter and ask him what cut I should get, and I buy a small 2-1/2 pound piece of said cut. Small, because we're only 2 people and there's no reason to have too much of this and it's an experiment anyway.

I've been looking through Epicurious and Food TV recipes, and through my myriad of cook books and magazines at home and there are so many ways of preparing this that I'm starting to get a bit woozy from it all.

I just need to wittle it down to a very basic, simple method. I can either use my gas Weber grill or of course, my oven. I don't have a smoker, but could buy the necessary accessory for the gas grill (I assume there is one). Or, I know there are ways to do this without even using a smoker. I'm not trying to be a purist about this, so the smoker isn't a total necessity for me.

Any easy ways to do this? I would prefer to use the grill over the oven if possible.
