Pulled Pork in the Cariboo

Pulled Pork in the Cariboo

We have been eating well this last week, meals are getting to be back to normal meaning our dinners induce food comas after eating like our first Pulled Pork that we had here! Yes Morgyn set up the big blue drum smoker on our deck and we smoked a pork shoulder all day. Our block must have been wondering what the new ladies were cooking! We shared a plate with our neighbor and she really enjoyed it! This time we made the sauce less sweet and more Italian style with Italian herbs and tomato sauce..it was delicious! Pork Shoulder in the Brine. We left it in the brine over night before smoking it. Here is our big blue drum Smoker! 🙂 Morgyn adding some Hickory wood chips..the puppies are helping! Humble Dog and Mr Dog checking out the smell of the smoker! Mr Dog recently had surgery. He is alright now though! Pork Shoulder after 6 hours on the smoker! Time to take off and finish in the oven! First a bit of Olive Oil.. 6 hours later out of our oven! Looks wonderful! Time to pull it! Our yummy sauce.. My Pulled Pork Wrap! Morgyn’s Pulled Pork...

Pulled Pork is a great meal. Who can’t appreciate a smoked pork shoulder in a savory brine smoked on a smoker for most of the day and then taken out for dinner the next day ..We recently made a new Big Blue Drum Smoker as we outgrew our old one. We needed something bigger, something that could if we wanted to fit 6 turkeys in there or 8 or so pork shoulders! We can probably feed 100 people at a catering event easily with the smoker that we have now. Who knows perhaps we will do that in the future. The most people we’ve catered was at a work event where there was a little over 50 people. Our latest Pulled Pork dinner we had with Morgyn’s daughter and sent her home with some smoked food to share with her family. It was the best so far we think, as we did the sandwiches a little differently..look at the photos, you will see what I mean! We grilled the pork after pulling it and left out the BBQ sauce! It was so good, really tasted like bacon! Our home made slaw was also really good, and a nice vibrant color contrast to the sour dough sandwiches we made!

Summer Pulled Pork

We have been having a few record breaking days here in the Vancouver area of BC! We are in the Valley and things get even hotter up this way! If you think it’s hot at 30C try being in 35C with no breeze! Yes that’s been our weather for the last week or so! Luckily we have a nice A/C unit in our living room so we have been cooling off indoors when it gets too hot and we put a fan our in our Gazebo! We really indulged in food last time Morgyn’s daughter was over for the weekend. We made California Rolls and had a Pulled Pork, then we had a nice treat for Morgyns birthday Prime Rib Steaks on the BBQ! Enjoy the photos of the Pulled Pork Sandwiches we...
