Irresistible Traeger Grill Pulled Pork with Rainbow Slaw
July 25, 2018
Nothing says “summer” more than some Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Rainbow Slaw. This ultimate crowd-pleaser is perfect for big group dinners, family picnics, or neighborhood barbecues. The rainbow slaw in this recipe adds a beautiful color, perfect crunch, and spunk to really set this meal apart!
My favorite way to create these heavenly juicy sandwiches is to use the Traeger grill. The Traeger grill can smoke that pork shoulder roast to just the perfect temperature without drying out the meat, while still infusing a deep, smoky flavor. And, win-win, you can keep your house cool in the hot summer season by utilizing the Traeger grill method. However, for all the home cooks out there without a Traeger grill, there is still a way to create this recipe using my Sweet and Spicy Pulled Pork method.
EQUAL PARTS RUB AND BROWN SUGAR
The beauty of this recipe is that it creates a mouthwatering meal with minimal effort. Just let that shoulder roast rest outside of the refrigerator until room temperature (about 30 minutes) before rubbing it down with the rub and brown sugar mixture. I just love the Traeger Blackened Saskatchewan Rub and the punch of untameable flavor it has, but have been known to use their Jerky Rub on this recipe with delicious results in the past, too.
After you rub the meat down, place it in the Traeger and let the hickory pellets work their magic. Your friends and neighbors will come knocking on your door when they smell the irresistible aroma of this sweet pulled pork roasting for 12-14 hours. For this reason, you may need to double the recipe for the extra company.
FOR THE FINISH
When the meat is finished roasting, it will fall off the bone and go just perfect with some Sweet Baby Rays Bbq Sauce. Just don’t forget that beautiful spread of Rainbow Slaw it adds the perfect crunch and zing to the decadent pork. Good luck eating just one sandwich!Print
