Directions See How It's Made
- Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a glass or plastic container large enough to hold all the pork (or beef brisket).
- Add the pork, turning to be sure it is well coated, Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours, turning occasionally.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In heavy saucepan, combine the ingredients for the Jack & Coke BBQ Sauce, adding adobo seasoning or salt to taste, heat to almost boiling, and reduce heat to simmer 20 minutes. Cover and set aside.
- Place the marinated meat in a roasting pan. Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil and cook the pork in the preheated oven for 1-1/2 hours. Pour off 2/3 of the liquid in the pan and spread the meat with the barbecue sauce and return it to the oven, uncovered, for another 1-1/2 hours.
- When the pork is done, it will shred easily with a fork. Test it, and if it's still a bit difficult to shred, return it to the oven for another 15 minutes and try again.
- When the meat is done, taste to see of more salt and pepper is needed, remove it from the oven and shred it with a fork. Slice the rolls in half, pile on the pork, and serve with creamy coleslaw.
