Everybody has a favorite type of barbecue. Eastern NC BBQ has a pure salty savoryness without any ketchup base. The following recipe is awesome served on large sandwich buns with potato chips. And it's easy--a great recipe to set in the crock pot and come home to an almost-finished meal. For cost savings, I often buy a large pork roast when it goes on sale and just cut in in two halves; use one for the recipe. Pick a nice lean cut; not a Boston butt. Even better as a leftover!!
- Place roast in crock pot. Brush with BBQ sauce.
- Cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours.
- Just before serving, remove any fat then use a fork to shred all the meat.
- Stir together all remaining ingredients (I just mix in my measuring cup), and pour over pork. Toss pork in sauce.
- Scoop onto sandwich with slotted spoon (to avoid soggy buns).
This was FANTASTIC. To sum it up: KING'S. I have been living in Georgia for 10 years, and there is a totally different way of preparing BBQ down here. I did realize that I used teaspoons instead of TABLEspoons, and I drained the juice (which I'm not sure if I was supposed to do or not), & I used a Boston Butt (this was a plan B recipe). LOL: it ended up tasting like my favorite BBQ spot. Thank you!!!
This was really good! I am kind of lazy, so I mixed up the sauce ingredients and added them with the meat right at the beginning of cooking. It was great-- a wonderful crockpot alternative to pork smothered in BBQ sauce. I will be keeping this recipe close!
This was AMAZING! My house smelt great for days too! My husband is from SE NC and hates it when I make BBQ since its always too sweet...well a 6 pound Pork Shoulder later,with not a single serving leftover from the 3 of us, and he loves it when I say I am making BBQ (he probably ate about 2lbs of it himself!)
