My Carolina Pulled Pork recipe is the easiest pulled pork recipe you’ll find! Everyone knows that the best barbecue in the world can be found in the states of North and South Carolina (don’t @ me on this!) Rather than differentiate between them, I refer to this as Carolina Pulled Pork! 

To make this couldn’t be easier – all it takes is time! Start by rubbing a shoulder of pork with brown sugar, salt, paprika, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and freshly ground black pepper. Roast the pork in a low oven for 2 1/2 – 3 hours. Spoon over a sauce made with vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes and it’s ready! Amazing!
