Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb “Smoked” Pulled Pork (IF)

Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb “Smoked” Pulled Pork

I am a huge fan of barbecue cooking and smoked meats, but I don’t have two things — a smoker or the patience to sit with the smoker and ensure a constant temp. This recipe solves that situation by infusing a ton of some flavor into the pork roast through the brine and utilizes the oven to gradually cook the roast. While this recipe may take 12+ hours to cook, I spent only about 20 minutes actual time in the kitchen. It is somewhat the ultimate in the “Set it and Forget it” type recipes to quote Ron Popeil. This is the same recipe I prepared for Tasha’s graduation party, which received rave reviews. Some attendees said it was better than other BBQ food prepared at other parties, including legendary Hickory Park BBQ joint in Ames.

      The link to the dry rub recipe ( was at point 1:47 in the video and in the LCAF cookbook. Follow the link in this recipe, and it is in the video description.

    Thanks for the response. I do see that you USE the dry rub at point 1:47 in the video, and call for it in the description of the video, but as far as I can see there is no recipe for what is IN the dry rub. I’m not sure what I’m missing here. Is it possible to list the ingredients for me? Thank you.
