To serve

2-3 burger buns


1. Pre-heat the oven to Gas mark 2, 150 degrees Celsius.
2. Make the rub and rub it all over the meat.
3. On the hob, heat the oil in a Dutch oven or similar ovenproof pot.
4. Sear the boar then pour in the beer and liquid smoke, if using.
5. Put the lid on and place in the oven for 3 hours. Check occasionally and add a bit more beer if it looks dry.
6. Meanwhile, make the sauce by heating all the ingredients in a pan until you have a bubbling, glossy sauce.
7. When the boar is soft enough to pull apart, take it out of the oven and shred it using two forks. Add it to the sauce and stir until coated.
