A delicious dry rub gives this melt in your mouth pork great flavour. The slaw, homemade barbecue sauce and easy to eat lettuce cups make this a new favourite.

I used free range pork for extra flavour and serve with a side of crunchy crackling and rice. This is a great meal served on a platter at parties as the lettuce cups make it easy to pick up and eat. The results and empty platter speak for themselves!

Bake the pork uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn the temperature to 140 degrees. Add water until it reaches to half way up the side of the pork. Cover and bake for 3 hours. See Tips
In the meantime, bring the barbecue sauce ingredients to a boil in a saucepan.  Simmer for 20 minutes to reduce the sauce.

Making the barbecue sauce

Mix the slaw ingredients in a bowl. Lay the cos lettuce leaves on a plate, spoon on slaw.
Remove the pork from the oven, use two forks to pull the pork apart, rest in the sauce until ready to serve.

The tender pork will fall apart

Increase the temperature to 230 degrees. Place the pork fat in the oven on a wire rack and bake for 10 - 15 minutes until crispy. Break into bite sized pieces and place on a plate.

Place the pulled pork into the lettuce cups and serve with barbecue sauce and sides of crackling and rice. Enjoy!

Check your pork every 1/2 hour or so to make sure there is a small amount of liquid while baking. Top up as required.
