Here are my absolute favorite recipes for your perfect BBQ!
Best cuts for pulled pork
There are lots recipes for pulled pork. Some recommend the pork butt, some the pork shoulder and you can even use pork tenderloin. I like to use the shoulder – you can get a good sized one – around 4-5 pounds, it fits in the average sized slow cooker (3-5 quarts) and is reasonably priced at the butcher or grocery store.
Once your pork shoulder is cooked, and drained, following my recipe, you need a premium BBQ sauce to bring out the flavour of the pork. In our home that means our own special homemade BBQ sauce. So here is the recipe, just for you. It’s so easy to make, you will always want to have lots on hand – for barbecuing any time of the year. The hickory smoke flavour is perfect for pulled pork.
My Mom used to say the secret to the best coleslaw was adding enough onion! Coleslaw can take many forms but the tangy sweetness in this recipe is always great with outdoor BBQ, smoked meat and our slow cooker pulled pork. It comes together in minutes and you can serve it again the next day.
You are going to fall in love with this Buttermilk Chocolate Bundt Cake. We first enjoyed this cake last summer at a Canada Day BBQ! I made a few of my own changes to it, and turned it into a bundt cake. The Hot Water Frosting is something I hadn’t tried before, and this is definitely a one-bowl scratch cake. Yes indeed!
Remember Magic Cookie Bar squares? Some folks call it Seven Layer Cookie Bars. Well I took the recipe and turned it into a dessert pizza! I know, I kind of have a thing for ‘pie-shaped desserts”. Yummm!
