How to Make Pork BBQ, Carolina Style


  • 1Place meat in a slow cooker or an ovenproof pot and salt and pepper to season. Pour in the vinegar and cook 12 hours on low or 5 hours on high in the crock pot or slow cooker. If you use a pot, simmer on the stove or in the oven (350^) until meat falls off the bone or simply falls apart.
  • 2Remove meat to a platter and strain the broth, saving 2 cups of the liquid, discarding the rest of the broth. To the 2 cups of reserved broth, add the hot sauce, cayenne, crushed red pepper and brown sugar, stirring well to dissolve sugar.
  • 3Shred meat with 2 forks and put back into the pot or slow cooker and add the broth and let heat through.
  • 4Serve on toasted buns with sweet pickle relish or a relish of your choice. We like the sweet pickle relish the best.
  • 5This freezes well. Freeze in individual portions for a quick sandwich. Just reheat in the microwave.
