Pulled Pork 9/21

The Pulled Pork dinner was a fairly easy one. For BBQ my main resource is the website Amazing Ribs

Memphis Dust
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground ginger powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 teaspoons rosemary powder

For the pulled pork I took a 5.5 pound piece of Boston Butt (a cut from the shoulder). Pat the meat dry with paper towels, then apply a light coating of vegetable oil. Then cover the whole pork with the rub. Then put the meat in the crockpot along with a bottle of ginger beer (you can use other liquids, choice of liquid changes the taste in only very subtle ways). Cook it on low for 10ish hours, or a combination of low and high for less. Exact cooking time will vary with slow cookers. You can also do this in a dutch oven or other large, oven safe pot. In the oven it’ll take 4-5 hours at 350 or more at lower temperatures and require more liquid. exact times will depend on temperature and size of the meat.

Once the pork is done take it out of the liquid and shred it. At that point I added a tablespoon or two of liquid smoke, use more or less of this to taste. Once shredded you can sprinkle some of the rub on top and put it under the broiler if you want a crispy bark, or just serve it as is.

Amazing ribs also supplied the sweet and sour coleslaw recipe

The sauces were also from amazing ribs. There was the South Carolina Mustard Sauce, the East Carolina Kiss and Vinegar mop sauce, and the Texas Mop Sauce

The site is full of useful meat information and fun to explore…
