Oven Smoked Pulled Pork

Thursday, May 24, 2018
This Oven Smoked Pulled Pork is the perfect solution when you want a smoked flavored pulled pork without a smoker. This pork shreds perfectly after oven slow roasted and pulls apart easily. The smoked flavor is just subtle enough and not overpowering. I was extremely pleased how easy this was with using an outside smoker and got such delicious results!

Smoking without a smoker!


We love the taste of smoked foods.
We don't own a smoker and for just the two us decided to learn how to cook meats to have a great smokey flavor without investing in another appliance.


Smokers are really too big for the amount of meat we eat.


This pulled smoked pork recipe is my go to recipe for ham, pork chops, roasts and even steaks.
Everything turns out great just slow cooked in the oven. You can either use a cast iron skillet or dutch oven.

Tender Juicy and Pulls Apart So Easy


Pork Tenderloin is a leaner cut of meat, any boneless pork will work great. I just love the tenderloin the best. You can use pork butt or shoulder too. The fattier meats are more flavorful but I like to eat the leaner meats when I buy them.

Keep in mind that you can use any spices and flavors you like, this is just the flavors I prefer over some other. I have substituted cola for apple juice or bourbon before as well. Those are just other suggestions for the liquid when oven roasting.

The Easiest Way To Smoke Pork Without a Smoker!


I love pulled smoked pork. This Oven Smoked Pulled Pork is the easiest way to get that desired taste without buying a smoker.
Pork so juicy and tender it melts in your mouth delicious!

This can be made with any boneless cuts of pork for this recipe. The slow cooked smoked pork can easily be made in the oven. Then for all the busy mom's, workers and an easy method,
this can be added to a slow cooker for convenience.


The slow cooker is a great way when your working to come home to a delicious pulled pork. I happen to love the crusty edges from searing the meat first. Then slow cooked in the oven cooks the meat in less time when I am home all day. But you can make this either way.

Great for Sandwiches or Smoked Pork all by itself!


Since it's just my husband and I, we haven't invested in a slow cooker, we just don't have the need for a large outdoor smoker.



We just love pulled smoked pork. This smoked pork comes out perfect. Then with the Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauce recipe below it kicks it up a notch or two for the perfect smoked pulled pork sandwich!



This taste great even just sliced and on the plate with corn on the cob, baked beans and twice baked potatoes.



We usually use the leftovers if any for sandwiches the next day, the pork is so delicious all by itself. The pulled pork smoked is also great without barbecue on a toasted garlic roll. There are so many ways to use this delicious meat.

This is a pin for pinterest for pulled smoke pork that has been shredded and in a glass dish with the juices that flowed from the pork after being slow roasted in the oven




No matter how you decide to serve this oven smoked pulled pork your going to love how tender, juicy and easy this is to make.
Everyone will think you used an outdoor smoker. You can adjust the seasonings to more or less with the liquid smoke.



I like it to be subtle in flavor not bold so I use just 2 tablespoons and with the smoked paprika it's more than enough. Searing the meat locks in the juices, do not miss that step. Enjoy!
