In our house, summer = BBQ! One of my hubs favorite dishes is this recipe, and the great part is that it’s so dang easy that it adds to the impressive nature every time!
There are 3 basic steps to my recipe.
Step 1 is the dry rub. You can see my really scientific recipe here.
I tried my darndest to come up with measurements, but this is usually not my thing.
Step 3: In the morning, turn your slow cooker on low all day-about 7-8 hours! I turn it on around 6 am and get home by 5 and it’s just fine, too.
Now you wait.....
And find a toddler. The conversation will help the time fly by.
(HAHA!!! I have no idea...)
Now, fast forward the day and possible headache (from translating said conversations...)
Step 3: Next, get a plate and use a couple spatulas to remove the meat from the slow cooker. Drain the fat from the bowl. Return meat to slow cooker and shred it with two forks. You will start noticing the crusty bits from your rub! YUMMM!!
Once it’s all shredded, add your favorite BBQ sauce and mix . We don’t like ours too goopy, but feel free to add as much as you’d like. I’d like to make my own sauce sometime, but haven’t gotten there yet. We are big fans of Cattleman’s brand BBQ sauce.
I love to serve the BBQ on potato sandwich buns that have been toasted.
And a swipe of butter never hurts.
Now, pile on high and laugh with giddiness as you take your first bite!
Also, cool and crisp coleslaw is a great accompaniment. And oven fried potato wedges courtesy of Ina Garten.YUM! Enjoy! :)
