Pulled Pork – Smoked – Pressure Cooked

This is a very fast way to make great pulled pork. The only problem I had was, I could only fit about 1 pork butt in the pressure cooker at a time.


  • Pork Butt. (boned and cut into 3 inch wide strips)
  • 1 part BBQ Salt
  • 1 part Brown Sugar


  1. Cut the bone out of the pork butt and separate it into about 3″ x 2″ strips the length of the pork butt.
    • I like cut the pork butt apart because I can get more seasoning and smoke on it and it cooks faster.
    • If you cut it into smaller parts, you risk over-seasoning it.
  2. Smoke the pork butt on the grate at 225 degrees for 3 or 4 hours.
  3. Remove the pork butt from the smoker and place it in a pressure cooker with 1 cup of beer.
  4. Bring the cooker up to pressure and cook for 1 hour.
  5. Remove from heat and let the pressure release naturally (about 15 minutes).
  6. Remove the pork from the cooker and pull it.
  7. You should finish the pork butt in a hot skillet or on a griddle to crisp up the edges just before serving.
