So I was tossing the idea around of doing some pulled pork and at the last minute decided to pull the trigger. This video was not planned so bare with me on this one. The pork was slathered in mustard sauce and coated with a coffee-chilli rub I did for the prime rib on Thanksgiving. I smoked it at 275 for about 10-11 hours till it hit 195-200 internally. I wanted to let it rest for an hour or so but I was running out of time.
