Cooking for 6 people


  • 8 lb bone-in pork shoulder
  • 2 tbsp. mustard
  • 4 tbsp. pork rub seasoning
  • 20–30 slider rolls
  • 3 lb coleslaw

1 Food Prep

Fire up the smoker to 250°F.

Score the fat cap on the pork shoulder in a 1” wide cross pattern.

Apply a layer of mustard and rub all over the pork shoulder, this will bind our seasoning (optional).

Generously season with your pork rub.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Grillmaster’s Choice Pellets

Method: Pellet Grill

Temp: 250°F

3 The Cook

  • Place the pork in the smoker with a tray to catch all the drippings and smoke the pork until an internal temp of 205°F.

  • Once the pork reaches the desired internal temp. Place it in a pan adding any drippings, cover it with foil and let it rest for one hour before shredding. 

  • Build your slider by toasting the buns. Load them with pulled pork and coleslaw.  

  • Tips:

    – Mix your pulled pork with your favorite bbq sauce 

    – Pork shoulder cook times can fluctuate. Smoking the pork overnight can help alleviate the frustration of an undercooked pork shoulder. Smoke overnight and rest in a warming rack until it's time to serve. 

    – Pickles are a great addition. 

    – If you need to speed up the cooking time of your pork wrap it tightly in foil and place it back in the smoker.
