I have been trying to post this recipe and blog entry for 6 days. SIX. Every time I have sat down to write this and get the photos ready something has prevented me from doing so.
The recipe I am featuring today (and the last recipe for May’s CBOM) I actually made Memorial Day weekend for a get together on Sunday with friends and family. I was going to have it all up and ready to post on the blog on Monday for a last minute Memorial Day BBQ idea but was then invited to a last minute BBQ with Eric’s family so it didn’t happen. And then I was going to do it Tuesday night after work but that didn’t happen either because I was trying to recover from too much sun and food and fun from the long weekend. And then on Wednesday I was all ready to get this up and we had a very bad thunderstorm and lost power. Thursday I had to go out of town and well it is now Friday and I am finally getting this recipe up… and as always it is a new month and I am still trying to wrap up the old month! lol!
These pulled pork sandwiches were an absolutely perfect way to celebrate the weekend. So many different levels of flavor. The pork was heavenly after it cooked and was just falling apart with just the flavors of the rub… then top it with a (semi) homemade BBQ sauce and they were taken up a notch. I stuffed myself silly.
Notes: Of course the original cooking directions used the grill but I threw it in the crockpot which made for an easy BBQ dinner after a long day at the pool. Also the original recipe calls for whiskey to be added in the cooking liquid but I just added more apple cider. One last note; the recipe calls to rub the pork with a all-purpose rub, which a recipe is listed in the book. However I just adapted my own with what ingredients I had on hand (this recipe is listed below).
3 1/2 pounds pork shoulder, loin, butt, ribs (any of this type of meat will taste good and cooks well in the crockpot and falls apart easy to be shredded for these sandwiches)
1/4 cup all purpose rub (recipe below)
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cups apple cider
2 cups BBQ sauce
1 cup Dr. Pepper
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/2 cup steak sauce
