    Pulled pork video

    Shot a video the other day of one of our local pit guys, Billy Woodrich, fixing pulled pork.
    His restaurant is also going to be on Spike TV’s Hungry Investors this Sunday.

    Looks awesome!

    Is there any way to adapt this recipe for those of us who don't have a smoker/webber kettle at our disposal?

    An oven/crock pot method perhaps?

    Thank you for sharing!

    You can do this in either an oven or a crockpot. Method and cook time would be relatively similar. I wouldn't use that much sugar if you're doing it in a crockpot though. You would not get that level of crust/bark like out of a smoker or oven.

    Cool video sw2geeks. The production quality for all your pictures etc are always really, really nice. This looks like an interesting spot with a lot of character.

    It's interesting to see a Texan's take on pulled pork too. Here in NC it is very, very uncommon to see such a heavy/sugar-filled rub. I'm sure it tastes good but it reminds me more of a brisket rub. We tend to keep it more simple so it's more about the pork + smoke (... and the delicious vinegar sauce you pour over/chop it up with, for real authenticity )

    Doing a pork butt in the oven can produce a tasty pulled pork sandwich. I've done a few. For my oven, I have to bump up the temperature to 250 degrees. I wonder if you could create a crust by turning up the temperature to 450 degrees at the beginning for 30 minutes then back the temperature down to 250 for the rest of the cook time. I'm sure there's some people out there that would look at a smoked pork butt and say, "Eww, you burnt your meat."

    My daughter"s comment the first time she saw me pull a butt from the smoker, "Jeez, Pop, looks like a meteorite."

    Thank you for the suggestions--especially regarding the sugar. I'll dial it down before giving it a go.

    Unless it's a secrete, would you mind sharing a recipe for vinegar sauce? I've been to a few BBQ joints before and like vinegar sauce more so than I do 'regular' BBQ sauce.

    Should the crust just be browned or should it be crispy? If it's supposed to be crispy, wouldn't browning at the end help produce the right texture? Thank you!

    Ingredients:
    * 1 cup white vinegar
    * 1 cup cider vinegar
    * 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    * 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    * 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™), or to taste
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Directions: Combine the white vinegar, cider vinegar, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper in a jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 days before using so that the flavors will blend. Shake occasionally, and store for up to 2 months in the refrigerator.

    Eastern NC BBQ sauce is at heart an extremely simple thing. Most who talk about 'secret ingredients' are just BSing. I won't give you an exact recipe because it really is something you'll want to play with to your own tastes. A lot of people who don't grow up with this type of barbecue might find such a strong vinegar flavor over powering.

    At its base it is: apple cider vinegar, salt, cayenne, red pepper flakes and black pepper. You might want to add water to dilute it a bit and there are other things like lemon juice, wooster, hot sauce, paprika, brown/white sugar or molasses, celery seeds, onion & garlic powder etc to mix it up with. It's well known many BBQ joints enjoy a little MSG here and there, if you have fish sauce you could even throw a tiny bit in for that extra umami. That's it though. Whisk it in a bowl, adjust levels to your taste and then store for a day and taste again.

    If you want to play with it further - and straight vinegar is a little harsh to your palate - another variant found in central NC is basically the same but with the addition of ketchup and/or yellow mustard (always more ketchup than mustard), thrown in a pan and let to simmer for a few minutes to dissolve. Since you're heating that up, you could play with small amounts of aromatics like clove or star anise to mix it up more.

    It's nothing set in stone though. Have fun with it!

    I tend to keep mine simple and straightforward, and I never really make it with ketchup & mustard (because I like to be an elitist and turn my nose up to Western NC & SC BBQ )... but if I was going to be doing a central NC style sauce, I would definitely start out with a splash of bourbon - making sure to cook out the alcohol. I think that would be nice and it's a good excuse to make sure you have some bourbon in the house anyways.
