In her blog post, Morgan describes the dish as “barbecue the way it was meant to be” and even says the “made-from-scratch recipe … is as delicious as any you’ll find in a restaurant.”
The “Southern Pulled Pork BBQ” recipe just requires a Dutch oven, pork butt and a homemade barbecue rub. Of course, you also have to choose a barbecue sauce to serve with it.
According to Morgan, the pulled pork can be served alongside baked beans, coleslaw and cornbread, or on a sandwich, topped with coleslaw.

1 tablespoon burger seasoning
1 tablespoon jerk seasoning

2 tablespoon. liquid smoke

2. Using your hands, generously coat pork roast with dry BBQ spice rub. Work well into the meat.
3. Place pork in a large dutch oven. Add water and liquid smoke.
4. Cover dutch oven with lid.
5. Roast pork at 350 degrees for 2 hours, checking through the roasting process to ensure there is still enough liquid to prevent scorching.

7. Remove pork roast from oven and let rest for 30 minutes.
8. Transfer roast to a cutting board and pull meat with two forks, separating it from the fat.
