Where there’s smoke, there’s Pork!

Not many women can look at their husband/boyfriend and say “I want some BBQ” and have him respond with a smile, “I’ll fire up the smoker.” Well this girl is that lucky!! And I am definitely appreciative. My amazing boyfriend will cook, grill or smoke just about anything I ask him to. So this weekend, I asked him for pulled pork BBQ. As he takes care of the meat, I try to make sure that I take care of the sides and extras for our meal. I wanted to try something different so I took a suggestion from one of my fave blogs  Cooking for Keeps http://www.cookingforkeeps.com/2015/03/16/slow-cooker-bourbon-brown-sugar-pulled-chicken-sandwiches-with-bacon-and-brussels-sprout-corn-slaw/and made my own twist to her Corn Slaw. Neither of my boys are big fans of slaw but if it includes BBQ sauce and pork they are usually up for it. So this is what I came up with. I was quite pleased with how it turned out and I think the boys were as well. I’m going to keep working with this recipe.

On another note, the BBQ sauces were both a first try for me, and I have to say I enjoyed Cattlemen’s. Both of the sauces pictured here were included with our meal and we all enjoyed them. Will definitely be trying them again. I used the Gold Sauce with my slaw and then used the regular sauce on top of the whole sandwich. So so good!

We served our pulled pork on wheat buns topped with cole slaw and some extra sauce. For sides we had baked beans and mashed potatoes. Super simple and wonderful meal. I might get my man to share some of his smoking secrets in a future post! But for now, here’s the slaw recipe!

BBQ Corn Coleslaw

1 package premade cole slaw (or mix of your choice)

1 can of yellow corn

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup – 1 cup BBQ sauce of choice

Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl and mix well. Refrigerate 2-4 hours or overnight. This can be used as a basic side or this can be used as a topping for your favorite BBQ pork sandwich. The corn adds a nice sweetness that was really exciting in the slaw and the BBQ sauce made up the tang that is needed for a good slaw. I hope you will give it a try!
