BDC’s NC Pork Shoulder-Posted on SmokinTex Forums

“Thought I’d share the last butt I smoked,  plus the recipe I’ve been using for years. I have been stoking fires way too long…I love my new SmokinTex man and everyone I know is jealous when they see it! I’ve uploaded a short video for family and thought you might like to see it. I prefer to make a homemade NC vinegar-style sauce for my pork…but I also make a tomato-based…and I cheat a little bit; what I like to do is mix 1/4 cup of my vinegar sauce to 1.5 cups of Sweet Baby Rays Original! Shake well! It’s really tasty and everyone loves it! If you’re making sandwiches I highly recommend the “Tidewater Coleslaw” recipe located here: top off your sandwiches with this and you will be in 7th heaven! Enjoy…”
