Pulled Pork smoked with apple juice and vinegar

Low and slow cooking. This recipe takes approx. 9hrs to achieve, but the results are in-shreddable, Moist meat and crispy bark which goes a long way and works perfectly in a bun with a fresh coleslaw.

  • 4-5kg Pork Butt
  • 2Tbsp Brown Sugar / 3Tbsp Salt (Celery recommended) / 2Tbsp onion and garlic powders / 2Tbsp smoked paprika / 2Tbsp Cayenne Pepper / 2Tbspn Black Pepper
  • 250ml Apple juice / 2Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

Preheat your smoker to 120◦C. Combine the dry ingredients to create the ultimate seasoning that will caramelise and crust as the pork cooks. Now combine the apple juice and vinegar so that you can achieve a sweet and tangy flavour. Trim excess fat from your pork butt and pat your meat dry with paper towels. Coat your pork with olive oil to create a binding for your dry rub, and now sprinkle the rub all over and pat it in. Time to cook – fatty side up! You are aiming to cook at 75◦C. Once you reach this temperature, move your pork into a dish and add your apple vinegar (do not pour onto the meat). Now loosely cover with foil leaving a gap above the meat to allow steam to circulate and to avoid touching your rub. Continue to cook for approx. 6 hours. And it’s done. Remove the bone, shred it up and let your guests help themselves.

Peri Peri Style Spatchcocked Chicken

You may not be supporting Portugal in the competition, but they certainly know how to make a spicy-good chicken sauce. This recipe is a quick 1h 30mins and a flavourful winner which ups the game of cooking the mighty popular chicken. It pairs brilliantly with white rice or a fresh summer salad.

Whole chicken

  • 2 Scotch bonnet peppers (if you like it hot, hot, hot)
  • 1 Bunch fresh coriander / 15 fresh basil leaves / 2 Tbsp lemon juice / 2 jarred red bell peppers / 1 Tbsp molasses / 75ml hot smoked paprika / 1 Tbsp fine salt / 4 Garlic cloves

Pre heat your oven to 220◦C. Now let’s make the sauce. Cut the stems off of the coriander, chilli peppers, and basil leaves. Peel the garlic and pat dry your roasted bell peppers (to avoid a watery sauce). Blend these ingredients before adding the rest of the sauce ingredients to blend on high speed until thick and colourful. Reserve 60ml of the sauce (for later). Time to spatchcock the chicken. Cut out the spine and trim off the wing tips. With the breast side up, press down on the chicken until you hear a crack (its worth all this effort for a more even cook and a crispier skin). Pat your chook dry and then generously spread a thick layer of your peri-peri sauce all over. Cook on a rack over a tray for 20mins and then lower your temp to 180◦C. Cook for a further 50 mins (approx.). Rest the chicken and enjoy.
