I make this recipe frequently and it makes delicious moist pulled pork and I don't have to tend the smoker for hours. A couple of hints: (1)Use your favorite rib/pork rub to save time. (2) If you are using a bone-in pork shoulder throw the bone in the pot for extra flavor. (3) Optional: After shredding the pork on a baking sheet pour some of the liquid form the pot over the pork and slightly crisp the ends under a broiler.
Those are great suggestions, sounds amazing. Thank you!
How much BBQ sauce in the liquid mixture, how much in total?
Add 1/4 cup into the mixture that goes into the Instant Pot. Then the amount you mix in the end is up to you and your personal preference. I think 1/4 cup is good (so you'd need 1/2 cup total). I see the confusion in the recipe, so I will update that now. Thanks!
Can you use cubed pork shoulder for this recipe?
Absolutely! Pork shoulder makes excellent pulled pork.
When you say cube, how big is each piece supposed to be?
The photos show the size of the cubed pork in the instant pot. It looks like the chunks are large enough that about 3 chunks cover the bottom of the pot
