Pulled Pork & Beef Brisket

I adore low and slow and I am sure you do too. Here's how to do it on a Weber Kettle! The technique doesn't vary but the cooking time will. A 1/2 brisket or 1/2 pork shoulder will take 8 to 18 hours.

The technique

To low and slow on a Weber Kettle take a look at the Low and Slow technique page.

  • 2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1 Tbsp ground white pepper
  • 3/4 Tbsp of coarse sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp of chilli flakes
  • 3/4 Tbsp of Provencal herbs

Cooking Method

  • Set up the barbecue for low and slow.
  • Take the meat out of the fridge to come up to room temperature
  • Apply the rub, beef is nice with nothing on at all, on all surfaces
  • With the charcoal hot and on one side of the barbecue, a loaf tin of water over the top, place the meat on the opposite side of the grill
  • Turn the meat every 45 minutes, alternating with rotating every 45 minutes so it cooks evenly
  • Pork will be done when is starts to fall apart
  • Beef will be cooked when the internal temperature almost matches the temperature inside the grill
  • Leave the meat to rest, pork should rest for 30-45 minutes whereas beef only needs to rest for 20 minutes. Wrap it in foil and insulate with some towels during this time
  • Carve and serve

Fall apart ribs are a crowd pleaser. This video shows you how you can make them on a Weber Kettle. Use the grilling technique and start your chops or slices offset from the heat.
