North Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches

Serves 10 to 12

Cooking this roast long and slow makes for a tasty, tender sandwich. Top the sandwich with some coleslaw for a crunchy, cool contrast. Have your favorite side dishes and some cold watermelon for dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 5-to-5-1/2-pound boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste
  • 10 to 12 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Coleslaw (optional)
  • 4 cups wood chips (use hickory or oak chips for the best flavor)

Directions

  1. BBQ Sauce: In medium bowl, combine vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and hot pepper sauce. Divide sauce into two portions; set aside.

  2. Pulled Pork: At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover; drain before using. Rub meat with salt and black pepper.

    In a charcoal grill with a cover, place preheated coals around a drip pan for medium indirect heat. Add 1/2 inch hot water to drip pan. Sprinkle half of the drained wood chips over the coals.

    Place meat on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill about 4 hours or until meat is very tender.

    Add more preheated coals (use a hibachi or a metal chimney starter to preheat coals), wood chips and hot water every 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

    Remove meat from grill; cover with foil and let stand for 20-30 minutes. Using a fork, shred meat into long, thin strands.

    Pour sauce over shredded meat; toss to coat. Serve on toasted buns. If desired, top meat with coleslaw. Serve remaining sauce on the side.

    * Note: For gas grills, preheat and then turn off any burners directly below where the food will go. The heat circulates inside the grill, so turning the food is not necessary.
