Hey ya’ll!  I don’t know about you, but it seems like Summer just started and it’s already coming to a close!  We had SO much rain up here in the Midwest, it really put a damper (haha!) on our Summer cooking this year.  As much as I love Summer, I am hoping for a much drier fall so we can eat wood-fired dishes ’til the snow falls!  Truth be told, we still woodfire cook when there’s snow too!

It was GORGEOUS the last 2 weekends, especially today.  I almost didn’t want to have to come in a make this blog post!  Weather like this, or any weather at all, calls for some tender Pulled Pork.  Everytime we make pulled pork, we make something different.  So, let’s explore some things you can do with a big batch of scrumptious meat!

Just like with our Pork Carnitas recipe, we start with slow roasting a pork shoulder or pork butt.  You can learn how to do that by clicking HERE.  Just leave out the orange, cumin, and oregano, and do not make the Carnita sauce.  After you have roasted your pork according to the recipe, pull it apart with 2 forks or tongs and drench in your favorite bottled or homemade BBQ sauce.  Now we have BBQ Pulled Pork

The men and boys in this house love to just take the BBQ Pulled Pork, throw it on a big ol’ bun with some provolone or swiss cheese and a pickle and call it a day

 

Sometimes, they enjoy making BBQ nachos by topping tortillas chips with the BBQ Pulled Pork, shredded cheese, and diced green onions.
We also have a family member that has a gluten allergy and this creation we found at SkinnyMom is a perfect sub for a BBQ Pulled Pork sandwich by stuffing a Sweet Potato with the carnivorous creation and slathering in (gluten free) sauce
Well, that’s all for today.  We hope you have enjoyed seeing some new takes on creating unique dishes out of good ol’ wood fire cooked Pulled Pork.
