Next pile your coleslaw on top. DON’T skip it!! It is so good! If you have never tried coleslaw on a BBQ sandwich- now is the time to start! I like to add in a little paprika and green apples to my slaw. Here is the recipe for this homestyle coleslaw. It’s simple and can be made ahead of time as well, really this meal can’t get any easier.
And there you go. In true southern style, a rockin BBQ sandwich.
- 1 tbsp salt
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
- 2 tbsp paprika
- 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
- 2 cups apple juice
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tbsp liquid smoke
- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
- 2-3 pound shoulder pork roast
- 6 soft hamburger buns
- Top with your favorite BBQ sauce and some stellar coleslaw
- We are going to start out by making the rub!
- Mix the dry rub ingredients in small bowl. Rub the rub all over the roast! Pressing into the meat. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
- When your 1-2 hours are done.. combine liquid ingredients and the garlic powder in a crock pot. Remove wrap from pork and place in crock pot. Cook for 6-8 hours or until fork tender and shreds easily. If using liquid smoke brush it onto the roast every couple of hours.
- When done remove from the crock pot and shred the pork with a fork or tongs into bite size pieces. I placed it back into the marinade to keep the meat moist and warm until ready to serve.
- Now the assembly is quite important. You really need some good soft buns, (that's what she said! ahh!). Sorry that was out of line! but quality BREAD is important. So if you have a gas stove or wanna throw on your broiler, toast up your buns!
- Next pile on some meat, with no juice. If you haven't already tried the meat, you will notice that it is pretty tasty with nothing else. But go ahead and throw on your favorite BBQ sauce for good measure. .. and let it ooze on the sides. mmm. Gotta love Sweet Baby Ray's.
- Next pile your coleslaw on top. DON'T skip it!! It is so good! If you have never tried coleslaw on a BBQ sandwich- now is the time to start! I like to add in a little paprika and green apples to my slaw.
