Oklahoma Barbecued Chopped Pork
As they say in Oklahoma, "If your pork is smothered in sauce, it means you're trying to cover something up."
Why This Recipe Works
Many recipes for Oklahoma-style barbecued pork called for gargantuan pork shoulders weighing in at around 16 pounds. We opted for the more modest pork butt in our recipe. To prevent the need to refuel every two hours, we used an untraditional method to build the fire. We dumped unlit coals onto wood chips on one side of the grill, added more wood, then placed lit coals on top.
