Pulled pork is a dinner time staple and one of my favorite make ahead suppers. It's simple to make for the family or increase the recipe to feed a crowd. Many will make this in the slow cooker but when you cook it on the grill with wood smoke, it's a whole new level of deliciousness.

We love picking up a pork roast on sale and then making two or three different things from it. We will make smoked maple sausage, cut it into pork steaks and my favorite thing is making pulled pork sandwiches. It's a great way to stretch your grocery budget.

How to Make Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
- Pat pork roast dry with paper towels and place on a baking sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with dry rub over all sides.
- Allow to rest while you prepare a grill fire to about 300° with hickory for smoke flavor.
- Place pork roast over indirect heat and cook with the lid closed for about an hour per pound. Our pork shoulder was about 3 pounds.
- For pulled pork you are looking for an internal temperature of about 195 - 205°. A digital thermometer makes it easy to tell when your meat is ready.
- Remove pork from the grill and allow to rest 15 minutes.
- Use large forks or meat claws for shredding.
- To make sandwiches: butter buns and toast lightly. Top with pulled pork and a generous amount of homemade bbq sauce. Serve immediately.
How to Store and Reheat:
Store pulled pork in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 4 days.
To reheat, mix with bbq sauce in a skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring often, about 5-8 minutes or until heated through.
