Rosie And Mr. Hawthorne Make Pulled Pork Barbecue.

As you know, Mr. Hawthorne and I are always on the lookout for bargains at Food Lion.
And we found one in 7 pounds of Boston Butt for $5.61. It's Crock Pot Time!
I also had a small bit of deer rump roast in the freezer which I decided to throw in, being sure to mark it off my inventory.
I thinly sliced the rump roast ...
... and tucked the slices around the butt, sprinkling with Montreal Steak Seasoning and freshly ground salt and pepper.
For my liquid, I poured in 1/2 can of beef broth (which is what I had leftover in the fridge), 3 tablespoons each of soy sauce and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, and 1 teaspoon each of Stubbs hickory and mesquite liquid smoke.
This went into the crock pot on high at 11 in the morning.
At 7:00 the meat is falling off the bone.
Mr. Hawthorne tonged the meat off then pulled it.
Here are the fixin's for our sauce: 1 cup cider vinegar 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 tablespoons Lea and Perrins 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon hickory liquid smoke And that's not a jar of Dijon mustard. It's a jar Dijon mustard jar of my homegrown hot peppers. With pulled pork, Mr. Hawthorne likes a vinegar based sauce. He uses a tomato based sauce for baby backs or short ribs.
The sauce was perfect with the pork. Just a hint of heat from the pepper flakes. As for the deer, it wasn't gamy at all. It was similar to liver (which I love), but not strong at all.
Mr. Hawthorne made the coleslaw and potato salad, recipes not included since everyone has one or two or a hundred.

This looks so delish. I love pulled pork. I would put the cole slaw right on top of that sandwich.....

Rosie, you eat like a bird. The amount of food on that plate would make me sad.

Hi mommy! What is "pulling" the pork? Just tearing it into little strips with your fingers???

Yes, Waney Poo. Just tear into the pork.
