Slow Roasted Pork Sandwich with Cripple Creek BBQ Sauce and Rub – Episode 164By
Having bought a pork trunk which I took a bunch off sliced thin for pounded cutlets, then removed a few large pieces to add in to the veal Osso Bucco what was left was a nice piece of meat- So rather than just butterfly, stuff and slow roast I figured lets rub it down with our www.cripplecreekbarbeque.com rub and let it marinate overnight. Once that was down then it would be going on to the grill and for some reason that escapes me now I thought I would be able to actually “pull” this piece of meat with only 6 hours of roast time.
So why is this so odd? Well generally I smoke pork butts for over 12 hours to pull them- so what had me thinking I could pull this solid block of white meat? I still do not know really but what came out was a great thin sliced pork sandwich with a some of Cripple Creek’s great BBQ sauce on it. Since this was not a traditional pulled pork we figured instead of the coleslaw topping we would go with a cucumber sour cream salad on top. It came out great!
