For the pork

Mix together barbecue rub ingredients, then coat over pork.

Braise the pork in your camp oven until brown, making sure to get some nice burnt ends.

Remove pork and add chopped apples and onions. Place pork back in and fill with stock and juice to cover ¾ of the pork.

Cook low and slow for up to six hours or when the pork pulls apart. Try and regulate a slow heat, approximately 150˚C at most.

Once finished, place shredded pork into a tray and thoroughly coat in barbecue sauce.

For the nachos

Line your camp oven with tin foil.

For the first layer, evenly spread 1/3 of the chips into the camp oven, topped with shredded pork, salsa and ¼ cup cheese. Repeat for second and third layer.

Cover camp oven and place on metal grill over fire (or over hot coals) for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve with smashed avo, dollop of sour cream and lime wedges.
