If you are looking for an awesome recipe for this July 4th and you have access to a smoker give this a shot. It's a crowd pleaser!

Smoked Pulled Pork and Kicked up Beans.

I used my Traeger Pellet Grill, but I'm sure you could do it on whatever smoker you have. I seasoned some sectioned pork shoulder with a spice rub of onion, garlic, brown sugar, chili powder, salt, & pepper.

I smoked the pork shoulder sections for about 5 hours at +170 degrees. Then I placed them in a foil pan with 2 cups of apple juice and continued smoking at +200 degrees for another 2 hours.

Boost the temp to +275 for another hour or so. After the pork reached an internal temp of +185 I pulled it apart in the apple juice and added a small amount of my favorite BBQ sauce.

I put the foil pan of pulled pork back on the smoker with a pan of my kicked up beans and continued smoking at +275 for about 2 hours. Serve the pulled pork with the yummiest fresh buns, Kicked Up Beans and refreshing beverage of choice. Prepare for awesomeness. Always eat while sitting down.
