If there is one thing I like after a long slow cook on the Big Green Egg, it is leftovers! This BBQ Pulled Pork Penne is an impressive choice if you have left over pulled pork! Store bought will work too, but it just does not hit the next level like a freshly smoked pork butt.

If you are looking to also smoke your own pulled pork, one of my favorite recipes is this pulled pork recipe here. Let’s get on to the recipe!

How to Prepare the BBQ Pulled Pork Penne

As with most cooks on the Blackstone, they tend to go quite fast, so good preparation is always very helpful when making any recipe. Luckily, the prep work for the BBQ Pulled Pork Penne is quite easy.

I like to start out by dicing up the yellow onion and red pepper and setting them aside. I then gather all the other ingredients and prep them on the side of the Blackstone, so they are ready as needed.

Do not forget to open the can of diced tomatoes like I did!
