Pulled Pork Bbq Sandwich


1 pork butt roast (this one was 3 Lbs.)
Hand full garlic cloves
1 sweet onion, sliced
3 cups BBQ sauce
1/2 cup water
Salt & pepper to taste


Put your roast, onions, garlic and water in a Dutch oven and cover. I use cast iron but any good one will be fine.
You can also use a crock pot on high.
Put it into the oven at 250 for 3 hours.
Remove and let cool.
When the meat is cool enough to handle, you can string it. Tear it apart using your hands or 2 forks, I use my hands. At this point the meat should be almost falling apart by itself.
Remove the garlic and onions placing them is a bowl and using a fork mash them up as best as you can.
Mix this back in with the meat.
Add 3 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce and mix in well. It seems to be about a cup of BBQ sauce per pound of me, you can do more or less depending on your taste. I used our Chipotle Raspberry BBQ sauce, this adds a little of the southwest zing to it. You can find the recipe for it on our site. http://datenightdoins.com




This makes a great sandwich and is so simple to make. You can do the same thing using beef.

You can put any kind of spin on it you want from Asian, Southwest, Texas BBQ, Mexican or a just a good Sloppy Joe.

I remember this from my mother making it when I was a kid. This was her idea of a BBQ sandwich. Thinking about things I have to wonder why everything I do should go on the BBQ , when my folks did not even have one. I know now I must have been deprived as a child. Patti was a big city Yankee girl, so all she knew about Bar B Q was the spelling. Aren’t we supposed to fall not far from the tree?

Serve it either hot or cold, on buns, bread, toast or tortillas. Add your favorite sides and you are good to go.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone.
Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste.
Take it and run with it….
