Serves 4–6


4 to 6 pounds (1.8 to 2.7 kg) boneless pork shoulder
½ cup (120 ml) good-quality bourbon
¼ cup (35 g) Crown Maple sugar
2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
¼ cup (60 ml) Crown Maple syrup (Dark Color, Robust Taste)



Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Place the pork in a deep Dutch oven or roasting pan.

Mix the bourbon, maple sugar, spices, and salt in a bowl and pour all over the pork, turning to coat. Cover the roasting pan with a lid or foil and bake for 3 to 4 hours, checking its internal temperature halfway through. (The finished pulled pork should have an internal temperature of 195 to 200°F/90°C, and the texture will be right when the thermometer slides into the meat without resistance.)

Remove the pork from the oven, reserving the liquid, and transfer it to a cutting board. Let cool slightly, then shred the meat with two forks.

While the meat cools, cook down the remaining liquid in the Dutch oven over high heat for about 10 minutes, until it has slightly reduced and thickened. (If desired, whisk in a slurry of 1 tablespoon each of cornstarch and water to thicken.) Stir in the maple syrup and season with salt and black pepper to taste, then add the shredded meat and stir to coat with the sauce. Serve warm.
