  • Campfire grill grate or portable grill
  • Heavy-duty aluminum foil
  • Tongs
  • Campfire-safe pot with a lid
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Mixing bowls


  • 3 lbs pork shoulder
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • Optional toppings like coleslaw, pickles


  • Prep the Pork: Season the pork shoulder generously with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Wrap in Foil: Place the pork shoulder on a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil and wrap it tightly.
  • Start the Campfire: Make sure your campfire is stable and has low flames. Position your grill grate or portable grill over the fire.
  • Cook the Pork: Place the foil-wrapped pork on the grill and cook for about 3-4 hours, turning every hour.
  • Make the Sauce: In a campfire-safe pot, combine the sliced onion, garlic, BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, and brown sugar. Cook this on the side of your grill for about 20 minutes.
  • Check the Pork: After 3-4 hours, unwrap the pork. It should be tender and easily shred with a fork.
  • Shred the Pork: Remove the pork from the fire and shred it using two forks.
  • Mix it Up: Add the shredded pork to the sauce and mix well.


Ensure that your campfire is at a stable, low flame for even cooking. The pork should reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F for safe consumption.
