We are celebrating BBQ Week here on the blog by sharing recipes to make your BBQ Season more fun! Be sure to make your way down to the bottom so you can check out even more BBQ recipe ideas from a few of my foodie blogging friends.
Here in the south we take our BBQ very serious. If you say you’re going to have BBQ, it is understood that you mean shredded or pulled slow cooked to perfection then topped with your favorite BBQ sauce. Some folks like it plain, no sauce and that is okay too.
BUNS OR NO BUNS
Most often BBQ is served with buns such as burger buns but occasionally someone, like me, will enjoy it without the bread. Personally I like to mix the slaw with the meat.
SIDE DISHES TO SERVE WITH BBQ
Slaw is the number one side dish we serve with BBQ.
Oh yes, there must be slaw served with BBQ. That is an unspoken rule here in the south. Here’s my easy Creamy Cole Slaw recipe and here’s a video on my Facebook page of me making the slaw.
MOST POPULAR SIDE DISHES SERVED WITH BBQ
- Cole Slaw
- Baked Beans
- Potato Chips
- French Fries
- Pickle Spears
SLOW COOKED AND FORK TENDER
Slow Cooker BBQ is fork tender, juicy and full of flavor. My recipe is also super easy with few ingredients.
Just get your pork into the Crockpot early in the morning and serve it that evening or let it slow cook over night for the next day. 8 to 10 hours in the Crockpot will make the meat delicious and fork tender.
Personally I think slow cooked pulled pork is more tender and juicy than Smoked. That being said, smoked meat is crazy delicious and we do both!
We recently helped our daughter move into her new home. There were a whole lot of folks to feed on moving day so I volunteered to cook. My secret was to slow cook a pork butt overnight for BBQ the next day. Easy meal. I made plenty of Cole Slaw and provided chips and buns. It was a really easy meal to prepare and serve on moving day.
MAKE IT JUICY
So here’s the trick to keeping your BBQ Pulled Pork juicy. You are going to add some of the juice from the Crockpot back into the meat. Here’s how.
Scoop out about a cup full of the juice into a glass bowl or measuring cup. Set it in the freezer just long enough for the fat to rise to the top. Skim off the fat. Now heat the remaining juice in the microwave for a few seconds then pour over the shredded meat and blend it in using tongs or forks.
This will make your BBQ pulled pork juicy and full of flavor too!
