Canadian pulled pork

[p]Ok - im going to take my butt and picnic to 200 degrees and 'pull it'. Understand please that i have never tasted this or seen it for that matter. The far north (ontario) is quite a ways from the southern parts of the U.S. So once it hits 200 degrees i remove it a pull it with a fork. Then i add barbie sauce - do i mix it all up or do i add the barbie sauce as i place the pulled pork on the 'cheap' hamburger bun. Is that all there is? Brian

    Brian, Whereabouts in Ontario are you? There are a good number of Eggers here in Ontario. Pulled pork is awesome, probably the easiest/finest bbq meal, IMO.
    Yeah, take to 200 internal, break it open and 'shred' (it should come apart in strands or small chunks). There may be a bit of fat and connective tissue left unrendered; just push that off to the side. When you have the entire piece of meat reduced to a nice pile of pure shredded meat, you can either sauce at that point, add some seasoning if you like or just put it on a bun 'dry' and leave saucing to the consumer's choice.
    Most of all, enjoy your efforts; pulled pork is a great traditional bbq meal!

    I prefer to leave the saucing to the customer, so to speak. I like to dip the sandwhich in sauce that has run over onto my plate, too. I think NC barbecue would have the sauce on it already when you get the sandwhich. Believe it or not, I've lived here in NC 28 years and I don't each much barbecue from the restaurants because I don't like the traditional vinegar based "sauce".

    <p />Brian, you might just a well get a little hungry while you wait. [p]And for a quick, but great BBQ Sauce...
    Put the following ingredients in a blender and thoroughly mix. [p]1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    1/2 cup water
    1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    1 1/2 cups of catsup
    1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 1/2 tablespoons dry mustard
    4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 dashes of hot pepper sauce [p]Refrigerate what you don't use -- it gets better with age. [p]Comment on the BBQ Sauce from Bob...[p]Just finished blending up a batch of your sauce. That is some good stuff and wanted to say thanks for sharing it. [p]I never leave anything alone (a bad habit of mine) so I took about a fourth of it and added a squirt of mustard, a tsp of chopped garlic and a good half shot of Jack Daniels. As Emeril would say...that kicked it up to notches unknown to mankind. Try doing this next time you make a batch and see what you think.[p]Thanks again,

    Everything is permissable, as folks have indicated. However, if you decide to sauce your meat, it is my experience that, if you are going to have leftovers that you will be freezing or reheating, DO NOT sauce that portion that you will be saving for another day. The pork does better if you sauce it after you have reheated it.

    Just wanted to say that you will thoroughly enjoy this meal! Make sure you post a followup to your pulled pork meal and let us know how it was.[p]What kind of wood are you using? For pork I like hickory the best.
