Smoked Pork Shoulder

The smoked shoulder that I smoked for over 12 hours! It turned out better then I have ever expecting!
Check out the pictures and the amazing outcome....I LOVE MY NEW SMOKER BOX!

I rubbed the pork shoulder with a layer of mustard (1/2 to 1 cp of mustard, depends on how big the pork shoulder is).
The rub I used (1/4 cp. paprika, 2 TB. seasoned salt, 2 TB garlic powder and 2 TB pepper). I rubbed the meat on top of the mustard and let it sit over night. The next morning my husband put it on the grill at 6 am and we took it off the grill around 4 pm. When the meat was beginning to fall from the bone.

My Purple Slaw
1/2 onion, sliced very thin
2 carrots, grated,
1/2 or 8 cps. shredded red lettuce
1/4 cp red win vinegar
4 TB olive oil
2 TB sugar
1 tsp. garlic powder and paprika
salt and pepper

1. I mixed the vinegar, oil, sugar, garlic,paprika, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined. Toss the shredded veggies in the dressing.

This a picture of the pork when I pulled it for sandwiches. It was fantastic.
The sandwich!!
What do you do with all the pork leftover. I guess, you could continue to make sandwiches, but I wanted to try something different. I decided to make pulled pork egg rolls. I know that sounds weird, but it was awesome! It was worth the extra work.
Leftover pulled pork
Leftover slaw
Egg roll wrappers
Whisk the egg and water together and make a egg wash.

Add a heaping helping of pork in the center of the egg roll wrapper.

Top it with the slaw.

Roll the one corner up and egg wash all ends.

Fold in both sides and the roll like a jelly roll. It should be sealed by the egg wash.

Believe it or not, I baked these babies!! Or should I say I broiled them until brown and crunchy and then turned them to the other side.When both sides where brown and crunchy they were done. I served with your favorite BBQ sauce.
Trust me, you will enjoy these babies.


  1. i love pork should roast. the shredded meat is just perfect to go with anything.
    hv never thot of egg wrap though, isnt it creative or what! looks really yummy too!

  2. Look at that pork!!!! Mouthwatering good. I'd like a couple of those egg rolls please. ;-D

  3. You are SO lucky to have a smoker box! I would LOVE one! Look at that pork!

  4. That's a great use for both the leftover pulled pork and the leftover slaw. Whenever my husband makes pulled pork we always have a ton left over, so it's great to have some ideas to work with.

  5. Wow what a great piece of smoke pork...yum!
