Smoked Pulled Pork

Barbecue brings out the best of us. The family gathers around outside while the smell of smoldering wood or charcoal lingers in the air. Finally the feast is ready and the hungry group becomes primal for a moment and descends upon the food in a silence only broken by satisfied grunts.

It also brings out the worst in people. You know the guy, the guy who wants to stand next to you and tell you exactly how he would be cooking the food. Lucky for you, he isn’t Sadly though, I have noticed this same trend on the internet when it comes to barbecue posts. Sure, any post can have a random comment that is a bit uncalled for, but barbecue seems to just bring out the crazies.

I think its great that people are into grilling. It’s a passion. I get it. I’m pretty big on the whole meat over open flame myself. But, unless my immediate safety was involved, I wouldn’t ever tell another person how to man their grill. I certainly wouldn’t pop over to their blog and tell them how the way they prepared a piece of meat I had never tasted was incorrect. But, people do.

So for the barbecue fanatics out their, I see your knowledge and raise you one hell of a smoked pork.

    I’m smiling. I don’t think I tell people what I think they’re doing wrong (do I?) with grilling, but I love to do it myself. What I do look for in a recipe I find is first, brown sugar in the rub and second, part of the rub in the mop sauce. Bingo on both counts with this gorgeous looking bit of smoked goodness. It looks delicious.
