BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Coleslaw

Posted on 04 Apr 2016

Whenever I make these pulled-pork & coleslaw sandwiches they are always eaten quickly and never not enjoyed.

Coleslaw and bbq-flavoured pork is a great combination since the tanginess of the coleslaw cuts through the fattiness of the pulled pork, and that on a bun is rather tasty.

Slow-Cooked BBQ Pork

One of the best things you can do with a pork shoulder or butt (if you’re not in possession of a smoker) is to slow cook it. You coat it, as you would when you smoke one, and cook it low-and-slow in your oven for many hours.

Prep Time 5-10 minutes
Wait Time 1-12 hours
Cook Time 6-8 hours
Special Equipment enamelled cast iron pot with lid (like this)


Amount Ingredient Notes
3 kg (6 lb) pork butt or shoulder if it has a thick layer of fat –the fat cap– remove 80% of it
3 tablespoons sweet paprika feel free to use a little smoked or hot paprika if you have it
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon chipotle pepper powder
