Smoked Pulled Pork Shoulder

Mojo Pork IMG_2513

My son, Andrew, is smoking everything possible.

He has a new green egg and hasn’t stopped playing with it since he got it.

Last weekend he made a pork shoulder that he marinated for three days.

Instead of using the bottled Mojo dressing, we had to make our own.

It isn’t hard but it takes a lot of ingredients but the pork came out moist and very tasty.

1/2 cup oil

zest of a small orange

One cup orange juice

1/3 cup lime juice

One entire head of peeled garlic

One bunch of chopped cilantro

2 teaspoons oregano

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons turmeric

One tablespoon salt

One tablespoon pepper

One large pork shoulder with the bone- in. about eight or nine pounds

Put everything in the food processor, except the pork.

Process till it is all chopped. It doesn’t have to be smooth.

Put the pork in a large zip lock bag and pour the marinade into the bag and seal closed

Marinate the pork for two to three days

Heat your smoker to 285 degrees.

Place the pork on the grill and smoke it for about 8 to 10 hours

When it comes off the grill, the meat falls off the bone.

Great to eat with cole slaw, salad, sweet potato fries, corn bread, BBQ sauce or just make a sandwich.

Also good to make tacos and chili.
