    Seasoned Cook's Note:

    POPULAR pork barbecue just for a family or double up and make for a crowd. I was born and raised in North Carolina and have enjoyed pork barbecue all of my life. It is usually served with coleslaw and cornbread. This type of dinner is frequently used for fundraisers. Another popular way is to have the barbecue and slaw in a sandwich bun. This is a quick and easy method to cook pork barbecue and freezes well. It does not take a lot of sauce and I would suggest you mix a small amount and do a taste test. A family recipe.

      This recipe isn't exactly the same but very similar to another one that I made some years ago, & which was quite good. The only difference in fact was the red pepper flakes - no thanks for that! Otherwise it's really the same as the one I had made & that one was really delicious. The pork just fell right off the fork after it was done.

      Wow! This turned out wonderfully! DH gobbled down one sandwich and asked for seconds. The sauce is just right--the perfect balance of sweet and tangy for our taste buds. It reminds me of my mother's southern-style method of preparing pulled pork. I served this along with my other swap choices (Pommes Paillasson or Straw Potato Cake, Rhubarb-Strawberry Tart and Sweet Corn & Tomato Salad With Fresh Cilantro) for a nice summer dinner. Thank you for sharing! (Made for Recipe Swap #29 - June 2009)

      Delicious! The sauce was great and made the pork just right for our tastes. We will have this again when we feel like pigging out on pulled pork!
