Pork shoulder is the perfect kind of cut for making pulled pork because it is tender and very juicy.  And the price is very cheap.  You can't get any more budget friendly recipe than this one.

There are tons of recipes on the internet that they call for different spices and seasonings to make pulled pork.  There is nothing wrong about that.  But when you have a packed schedule, like I do, limited the spices into one jar surely makes cooking much easier.  You can pick whatever brand and combination of the spices and the sauce for this recipe.

CHEF NOTES

Regular burger buns work fine with this recipe at the time of serving.  But Ciabatta, focaccia or baguette would stay intact for much longer after adding all the juicy meat into the sandwich.  If you prefer to replace sandwiches with pasta, spaghetti is another great choice, too.
