Faux-Smoked Pulled Pork

In many parts of the country, this is what is meant by barbecue. Pulled pork is pork shoulder cooked until it is tender enough to be shredded with a fork. After being pulled apart, it can be mixed with a sauce and served on a bun with coleslaw.
Trim the excess fat from:
-1 boneless Boston butt or pork shoulder blade roast (about 4 pounds)
Rub with the second version of:
-Southern Barbecue Dry Rub, above
The meat can be cooked at once, or wrapped in 2 layers of aluminum foil and refrigerated for up to 24 hours. Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Heat a large Dutch oven or other heavy ovenproof pot large to hold the meat over medium heat. Add and heat:
-2 tablespoons lard or vegetable oil
Add the meat and brown well on all sides. Cover the pot tightly with a lid or foil, place in the oven, and bake until the meat is tender enough to be shredded with a fork, 3 to 31⁄2 hours. Skim the fat from the pan juices. Shred the meat with a fork and mix with the pan juices.

Stir in:

1 1/2 to 2 cups of North Carolina-Style Barbecue Sauce

Remember: a teaspoon or more of ground mustard seed and a tablespoon of tomato paste are excellent in here. Microplaned garlic is a welcome heresy. A stray cumin seed has been known to taint our renditions on this simple vinegar infusion as well. I guess the point is: start here, choose your ultimate destination.

Mix in a bowl:
-3⁄4 cup distilled white vinegar
-3⁄4 cup cider vinegar
-1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce, or more to taste
-1 tablespoon sugar
-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
-Salt and black pepper to taste
