Pulled Pork | Basics with Babish

This video was sponsored by National Pork Board. Visit pork.org/cooking to learn more.
With summer (hopefully?) right around the corner, backyards across the nation and the world are poised to get lost in a haze of blue smoke. Pulled pork can be a daunting task for a newcomer to the world of slow-and-low barbecue, but with some help from The National Pork Board, we'll make a pitmaster of you yet.

    • @Alexandra Spooner Memphis be overrated. Damn good, but overrated.

    • As someone from Rochester that moved down to east Nc actually that pulled pork looks to compete but the vinegar sauce would be perfect with it if you let it sit with it’s spices for a couple days

  • My mom is from NC and I have lived here for a while, but I grew up in FL. I have tried two different versions of pulled pork. The Carolina version, and the Floridian one. In NC you can expect a tangy lighter taste that is suited perfectly for summertime and great between two buns. You can get this taste from Parker's bbq. I dont know what to tell you, I dont know what they do I am not southern enough, I am but a mere beach douche from Cocoa. FL though, its a bit heavier and pulls apart and melts in your mouth like a piece of wagyu on crack. The secret is adobo. You know, the thing floridians live off of? If you are from FL you know what the hell im talking about. If you arent from FL im just gonna tell you that it is powder sent down to earth from god. Put it on ANYTHING and it will taste good. You dont need to know how to actually cook when you have adobo. There is no replicating it, no one except the angels in heaven knows how to make it. But, if you want some good pork from NC I can also direct you to a little place in Farmville (a.k.a what used to be the tobacco capital but is now just old people and remnants of what once was since the Mcdavids died) called B's bbq. When you first get there, you wont trust it so you just have to get past the appearance and trust me. Its GREAT. They have lines down the street as soon as they open. That is all I can say about my pork experience. I dont remember much since I dont really need to since ive been vegetarian for like a year now for health reasons but hopefully this was informative to some people.

  • What’s the point of this ridiculous sous vide nonsense if you’re gonna throw it in the oven lol

    • He only puts in it the oven for a shirt while to get the crust or bark around the pork. Sous vide slow cooks it.

  • Not bad. A little too heavy on the sugar imo but to each their own. I use a Treager (electronically controlled wood pellet smoker). 7ish hours at 225-250 and enjoy. I wrap with butcher paper once it hits 165 but you don’t have to, that’s just me.

  • Liquid smoke tastes like shit go chill at the park for a few hours *it will be worth it* and smoke it in a regular grill you don't need anything special a reg flying saucer Weber will do just keepp the heat low and throw as much smoke as you can at it for 2 hours one might be ok but at least 2 wrap it in foil and take it home to finish cooking JUST DON'T USE LIQUID SMOKE!!!

  • You didn't fry your buns? Throw some butter on those babies and slap 'em on a med-high pan. You gotta have a little crunch in that crust. Not a plain white - *cold* - or potato bun. Sesame seed, onion, or cheese buns work well.

  • If you do your pulled pork in a slow cooker. Do yourself a favor and pour in some RED ALE. Brand doesn’t really matter. It’s the style of ale you want. Everyone loves my dads pulled pork he does with that.

  • I do quick pulled pork where I cube my pork up and pressure cook it 30 mins and natural release it. Then remove and drain most liquid,add liquid smoke and bbq sauce and reduce down once pork is added. The stirring breaks up the pork. Thats pulled pork for a weeknight meal when I don't have time to smoke it properly.

  • To make that coleslaw more bun friendly mix the shredded cabbage with a generous pinch of kosher salt. Sit it in a strainer over a bowl and let the salt pull the moisture out for about 30 minutes. Then continue with what ever coleslaw recipe you are using. It will make the cabbage less firm and much nicer to put on a pulled pork sandwich.
