Pulled Pork Recipe/Ingredients:
First you want to trim off the fat cap from the pork shoulder / pork butt (if desired) since there is so much intramuscular fat already on the cut of meat. Then inject about 1 oz per LB of pork with your injection: 1 cup apple juice + 2 tbsp Spanglish Asadero ‘Al Pastor’ Rub. Pat the pork butt dry with a paper towel.
Then add the Spanglish Asadero ‘Chile de Arbol’ rub to every inch of this pork shoulder, and be generous. You want a heavy coat of rub to help season the meat, and for a solid bark.
Place pork shoulder / pork butt on your Traeger Pellet Grill (or any smoker) at 250ºF / 121ºC until the bark looks nice and dark or until the IT reaches about 170ºF / 76ºC. Then wrap very tightly with aluminum foil, and add any remaining injection/marinade to your foil wrap. Check for probe tenderness after a couple hours, and the pork shoulder / pork butt should be ready to pull once an IT of 200-205ºF / 93-96ºC is reached. Let rest for 1 hour.
In the meantime, combine all ingredients to a deep saucepan for the Smoked Peach Bourbon BBQ Sauce:

1 tsp whole grain mustard

2 grilled peaches (20-30 minutes at 250ºF) diced
1/4 cup Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey

Let cool, and blend all ingredients until smooth consistency.
