  • Author: Bake to the roots
  • Prep Time: 720
  • Cook Time: 600
  • Total Time: 1440
  • Yield: 10 1x



For the pulled pork

  • 70 oz. (2kg) pork shoulder
  • 2 cups (480ml) pineapple juice
  • 1 tsp. coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika powder
  • 1 tsp. sweet paprika powder
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

For the kraut salad

  • 28 oz. (800g) pointed cabbage
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil (eg. sunflower oil)
  • 3 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. caraway seeds
  • 1 tbsp. parsley, chopped
  • salt, pepper

For the assembling

  • 10 pretzel rolls
  • bbq sauce


  1. For the spice rub crush the coriander and mustard seeds coarsley. Add salt and pepper and pulverize. Add paprika powders, cayenne pepper and garlic powder and mix. Wash the meat and dry. Rub from all sides with the spice mix and place in an airtight container. Place in the fridge and let marinade over night (up to 24 hours).
  2. Use a marinating syringe to inject the pineapple juice into the pork in several places – the enzymes help to tenderize the meat. Set the temperature of the oven to 215°F (100°C) and place the meat on a grate with a drip pan unterneath and let cook for about 10 hours. The meat should have a core temperature of at least 190°F (88°C). Use the leaking fluids and pour them over the meat from time to time. The meat should easily fall apart when you pull it with two forks.
  3. For the kraut salad remove the stalk from the pointed cabbage. Slice very finely (either with a kife or a slicer). Add oil, vinegar, caraway seeds and parsley. Mix and season with salt and pepper. Let marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge. Stir occasionally.
  4. Take the cooked meat out of the oven and pull apart with two forks. Slice the pretzel rolls in the middle, spread some bbq sauce on the bottom part and add some pulled pork on top. Place a small amount of kraut salad on top and finish with the top part of the pretzel roll. Serve with sweet potato fries for example.


  • Enjoy bbq-ing!
