The Biggest Prep Mistake You're Making With Pulled Pork

The main idea of this article is the importance of letting pork shoulder reach ambient temperature before smoking it to achieve juicy and flavorful pulled pork. Putting cold meat straight from the fridge on the smoker results in an uneven cook and burnt edges. By allowing the meat to come to room temperature, the overall smoking time is shortened and the final product is more consistent. This simple step avoids unnecessary cooking time and ensures a better texture and taste.
