I wanted to try a different way to cook pulled pork so I went on-line to see what others recommended on this
method. Here is what I learned:

Always/never brine your pork shoulder/roast for at least two, six, twelve, 24, 36+ hours/days. Always/never
remove some of the excess fat. Always/never apply a dry rub and always/never let it sit at least two, six,
twelve, 24, 36+ hours. The best dry rub is X brand/Y Brand/Z Brand/make your own and here is the recipe I use.
Never/always braise/sear your meat before cooking but never/always use flour to coat and braise/sear it in
butter/olive oil/vegetable oil/bacon grease/use the trimmed fat from the pork.
To serve it use Carolina/Texas/St. Louis style BBQ sauce because it is the best.

Now shove that up your Chicago vs NY pizza argument.

I know, the term "pulled pork" turns me off as well. My old boss would order it all the time, I could not bring
myself to try it. I was visiting my parents one day and they had me pick up some from the new BBQ place down
the street. My father enjoyed it. I was hungry, it smelled pretty good and I could try a little instead of an
entire order. I liked it. But for me the key was the Carolina BBQ sauce which I never had before. I was never
crazy for BBQ, didn't like the tomato based BBQ sauces. They were okay but not great. I learned that Carolina
BBQ sauce is vinager based and it made the pulled pork perfect. It was worth trying.

Someone suggested that a cheap-and-cheating way to make pulled pork is to take a pork roast and simmer it in bbq sauce in a crock pot.

I can't imagine that it would be authentic (no bbq is authentic unless it includes smoke) but I'm going to try it anyway.

I make mine in a crock-pot. I prefer Carolina BBQ not that pansy-ass tomato sweet stuff. The tomato based
BBQ style is for bullies and Facebook users.

Don't cook it in BBQ sauce, you add that at the end. You can always add liquid smoke while cooking. Put
the pork fat side up and put the liquid smoke on top.

There are several ways to cook it, a single can of soda, a mixture of vinegar, brown sugar, spices, etc. An
Internet search will turn up a few recipes. You don't need much liquid. I add a dry rub the day before, let it
sit over night and put it in the crock pot in the morning. It turns out great.

Here is a recipe I based my cooking on:
http://savour-fare.com/2009/03/19/carolina-barbecue-pulled-pork/#CarolinaBBQPorkRecipe

Don't brine the meat for crock-pot cooking it didn't turn out well. The can of Coke recipe was okay but the
above recipe in the link was best.

I've only ever had a vinegar version of Carolina-style BBQ. I rather liked it, honestly.

But then, I grew up in NC.

I was never crazy about BBQ, it was okay to me but nothing special. It wasn't until I tried the Carolina style
with it's vinager goodness that I enjoyed BBQ and BBQ pulled pork. (yeah I know, the name)

Anybody have a good recipe for a good blancmange?  I feel like it would taste good right after playing tennis.

I kept thinking it was a Bugs Bunny or Warner Brothers cartoon. I came across the first video when I was
looking. Later that day I realized it was a Monty Python skit.

Blancmage goes well if you serve it alongside pulled pork, and take away the blancmange.

For dessert you can have vanilla pudding.

Might a Blancmage be influenced to conjour forth money? Or does its particular brand of magic not offer such possibilities?

How can you have pudding, if you don't eat your meat?

treif. How can you have meat AND pudding? Really now.


But honestly, so many people, here and everywhere, are so into food. Like, they want to make yummy things, and pretty things, and. How do you muster up the energy to put into something that's just gonig to be gone so soon? Is it like a hobby?
OK, if I'm starving, I would love to eat food. Actually sometimes if I'm bored I love to eat food. But people like MAKING food, and I don't get why. It's not just to eat it, because you can roast vegetables with nothing on them and eat them. And then your tummy isn't hurting. And not to ge too fancy, you can put salt and garlic powder on them or drizzle olive oil. My badly made point is, you can eat to being satisfied on foods that are much simpler to prepare. Why all the effort to make food that is just going to be eaten and gone within the day?

I find cooking/preparing food totally relaxing. Kind of my version of Zen. My GF hates me when she is always starving and I am cooking for more than an hour...

I mostly do not do it for the looks, but the taste. But serving it on nice plates, neatly arranged, is pleasing as well. Even if it is a simple dish.
