    What I am talking about is what most commonly refer to as BBQ.
    Whether it be whole pig, butt, or shoulder.
    I love the eastern North Carolina styled stuff. Either pulled or minced. I personally don't care for sliced.
    I can eat it just piled on a plate with slaw on the side or my favorite way is to put it on a bun and pile the slaw on it. I then love to pour a good vinegar based sauce on it. Hard to find around here so I make my own.

    I know depending on region taste very. Just curious to see what everyone else likes.

    I use left overs for all kinds of stuff as well. I have tried SFQ's sauce and have been using it ever since I found it. I pour it on right after meat is pulled.
    I use my sauce once I place the meat on the bun.
    It is similar to SFQ's with a little extra stuff.

    1 1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup ketchup
    2 tbs brown sugar
    2 tbs red pepper flakes
    1 tsp cayene
    1 tbs Tony Chachere
    1 tbs paprika

    Wife says it is the best sauce I have ever made.

    I am not referring to pork loin, ribs, ham, pork chops, bacon, sausage, or any other cuts.

    I am talking about this...

    Some like with a thick tomato sauce others with a vinegar sauce, and some with nothing at all.

    Its ok, I was waiting for it. [​IMG]

    If I had to pick 1 it would be K.K. although I really don't care for those things. I rarely eats sweats at all. It really comes from just sittin all the time. I drive on average of 500 miles per day. So that is alot of sittin' time.

    My absolute favorite way to have pork is whole hog cooked in an underground's so.......good!

    Second favorite is with the skin still on....slow cooked and mopped with a vinegar/jalapeno/onion/red pepper flake/kosher salt mop


    Third favorite is a skinned hog, marinaded overnight in
    a mojo sauce,


    As for sauces...I like vinegar/red pepper flake sauces, I make my own.......and prefer sauces on the side.

    Probably my favorite is pulled, but I can eat sliced or pretty much anyway when it comes down to it. God forbid who every came up with cole slaw on a pork sammie, but if you like it, fine. I can barely stand the stuff on the side plate, especially if its that runny cole slaw. [​IMG]
    Now my neighbor makes a nice drier slaw which I have begun to enjoy. That's the way slaw should be. But it still will not end up on my pork sammie.

    Dang it Alan, that WD is just plain warped. [​IMG] Although there may be some truth to the donut thing.[​IMG]
    On edit, I like the pork pulled, with southern vinegar sauce too.

    I guess pork loin is my favorite, but all pork is good.[​IMG]
  17. I know what you meant. I like it with the mater based sauces, vinegar based, Slaw Piled think between 2 pieces of Texas Toast and pork and slaw OOOZZING out from all sides, bowl full of baked beans and tater wedges or tater salad. I wasn't talking about just different cuts of pork, I was talking about the different BBQ as well. Whole Hog in the ground over night and then pulled, big old thick samiches of minced, and Outsides as we call them here with pimento cheese. I haven't ever found bad BBQ pork. Sorry for not expounding on what I said earlier.

    I am talking about this...

  18. My favorite is a good butt done until the bone pulls out and pulled. Serve with the following South Carolina Mustard sauce from Real American Foods by Jane and Michael Sterns:

    Piggy Park-Style Mustard-Based Sauce

    1/2 cup French's Yellow mustard
    6 Tablespoons sugar
    1 cup cider vinegar
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
    2 Tablespoons butter

    Combine all ingredients except soy sauce and butter in a saucepan and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in soy sauce and butter.

    I always double this and it fits comfortably into a quart jar. It makes a nice contrast to the traditional sauces and always gets rave reviews.

    That sign had me rolling. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I can understand the slaw thing. Wife don't care much for it either. That is unless its a particular kind. Found a place that uses their bbq sauce as the mixing ingred. and it is great. Basically the chopped/minced cabage that is mixed with a vinegar based red sauce. I will be trying to make my own. Its different.
