Shoulder of pork – Ideal for pulled pork

(1kg - 2.5kg)


Our Pork comes from our own Gloucester Old Spot pigs born and reared right here on the farm. Except for when giving birth, where they enjoy the comfort of our cosy barns, our pigs are reared outdoors in our willows and fields where they are free to root and forage. They are slower growing than most commercial breeds and we think this, coupled with their stress-free environment, really helps to produce more succulent, flavoursome meat and delicious crackling.

Our in-house butchers are passionate about using traditional methods with a modern flair to create our customers truly special cuts and handmade products.


You asked for it, this shoulder of pork is perfect for slower cooking and ideal for making pulled pork.

Pulled pork recipe 2.5kg

  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 medium mugful’s of cider
  • boneless shoulder of pork (about 2.5kg)

  • Mix together 2 tsp each smoked paprika, ground cumin, pepper, and brown sugar, plus 1 tsp salt. Rub over the 2.5kg boneless shoulder of pork.
  • Put the pork in a big casserole dish, skin-side up, and pour in 2 medium mugful’s of cider.
  • Cover with a lid and cook in the oven at 150C/130C fan/gas 2 for anywhere between 4 and 8 hrs until falling apart. Check every few hours in case it gets dry – if it does, add another mugful of cider.
  • Take it out of the oven and put the meat in a big dish, leaving the liquid in the casserole.
  • Shred the meat using two forks.
  • Add a mugful of a good smoky BBQ sauce to the casserole, mix it in, then ladle some into a bowl for dipping.
  • Put the pulled pork back in the casserole with the juices so it stays moist. Season to taste.
