Description[edit | edit source]
Cooking this roast long and slow makes for a tasty, tender sandwich. Top the sandwich with some coleslaw for a crunchy, cool contrast. Have your favorite side dishes and some cold watermelon for dessert; leftover cooked pork and barbecue sauce work for this recipe, too.

BBQ Sauce[edit | edit source]
- In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and hot pepper sauce.
- Divide sauce into two portions; set aside.
Pulled Pork[edit | edit source]
- At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover; drain before using.
- Rub meat with salt and black pepper.
- In a charcoal grill with a cover, place preheated coals around a drip pan for medium indirect heat.
- Add ½ inch hot water to the drip pan.
- Sprinkle half of the drained wood chips over the coals.
- Place meat on a grill rack over the drip pan.
- Cover and grill about 4 hours or until meat is very tender.
- Add more preheated coals (use a hibachi or a metal chimney starter to preheat coals), wood chips and hot water every 1 to 1½ hours.
- Remove meat from the grill; cover with foil and let stand for 20 – 30 minutes.
- Using a fork, shred meat into long, thin strands.
- Pour sauce over shredded meat; toss to coat.
- Serve on toasted buns; top meat with coleslaw.
- Serve remaining sauce on the side. Sell per piece, if desired.
Note[edit | edit source]
For gas grills, preheat and then turn off any burners directly below where the food will go. The heat circulates inside the grill, so turning the food is not necessary.
