Made pulled pork a couple of times. Freestyled a bit. No expert here, but result was yummie.

Grind/blend spices

  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons whole pepper corn mix
  • 2 teaspoons chilly flakes

If spices are whole, grind or blend them. Set aside.

Optionally: Substitute 1 teaspoon of paprika with chipotle pepper.

Bake (3-5 hours)

Bake between 3 to 5 hours 150 °C. Check every hour or two. Does the meat fall easily when spread with two forks? If so, you're done.
