This started out as strictly a North Carolina-style barbecue, but over the years it has evolved. The rub is more Memphis, and it helps produce a better “outside brown,” those prized bits of char that get chopped into pork barbecue. The injected brine is Cuban in influence; injecting pork shoulders is all the rage now, and with good reason. It helps keep the pork moist and get flavor from the inside out.

Make Ahead Tips
Barbecue reheats nicely in a microwave at medium power. Don’t nuke this stuff full bore or it will dry out. Another way I like to reheat pork is to put about an inch of water in a 3-quart saucepan and then insert a vegetable steamer. As the water begins to simmer and steam, pile the barbecue on top of the vegetable steamer and cover. Steam the ’cue for 5 to 10 minutes or until heated through.
