Pulled Pork is ideally suited for slow cooking. The tougher, budget-friendly cuts of pork really benefit from a long, slow cook. This is a new recipe for me that I tried on a whim when it was my job to deliver pulled pork sandwiches to 12 hungry SMCC culinary students. There were no leftovers!
Last week, we had a spell of very unseasonably hot weather for Maine, we’re talking 80 degrees in March. You will get no complaints from me. In fact we decided to celebrate our son’s 11th birthday with a cookout, complete with baked beans, coleslaw and grilled chicken.
