eric akis: barbecued pulled pork takes time and lots of propane - 2 burner gas barbecue
Dear Eric: I have noticed the phrase "pull pork" in the past few years.
"I don't remember hearing it before.
I would love to know what it means to pull pork.
Dianne dear Dianne: It's not surprising that you notice the phrase "pull pork.
"Nowadays, many restaurants are displaying the dish on the menu, and you know, when fast food restaurants such as Burger King and KFC offer it, the dish has become too trendy.
The latter fact is that the lovers of the well
Pork made in a mess.
They believe soon.
You know, there's no proper equipment in the food chain.
How and when to make the pulled pork properly and possibly put the pork they sell in a bag ready for heating and supply.
They won't call it a "real" barbecue --
An ancient and deeply rooted technique in which hardwood smoke and indirect heat are used to cook slowly and inject flavor into the meat.
Barbecue shops using this technology can be found in Texas, Tennessee, Carolina and elsewhere, and now there are many restaurants in Canada.
Cook Southern barbecue joints in the grill.
This is a sturdy device with a large cooking room with a separate cooking room for the placement of cured wood such as mes Wood, pecans and apples.
When the wood is lit, smoke and heat enter the cooking room, smoke and cook food at low temperatures without a flame touching the food.
Bris, sausages, chicken, ribs and, of course, pulled meat are all hot items prepared in this way.
In order to make the pull-up, meat such as pork shoulder roast is seasoned and then slowly cooked and smoked at temperatures not exceeding 200F.
During cooking, the meat is sometimes wiped or sprayed with a seasoned barbecue liquid, and the meat may be coated with a little barbecue sauce as the cooking approaches the end.
After about 12 to 14 hours or more, when the meat was very tender, it rested for a while and was then pulled into pieces, so it was called "pull meat ".
Shredded meat is often wet with some barbecue sauce and then piled up into soft bread that is easy to bite through.
Coleslaw may be piled up on the meat in the sandwich or put aside.
The Victorian restaurant that prepares pork in this way includes a pig Grill (pigbbqjoint. com)
And Smoken bone Cookshack (smokenbones. ca).
At Pig, you can buy a sandwich or a pound of pulled pork for $13.
In the past, I took it home and made my own sandwich or slider with it.
Given the long process needed to prepare the meat, I would call it good value.
I also made my own pull-up at home, and in a recent column I provided recipes to prepare the pull-up with a slow cooker.
Look for that recipe.
Eric Akis pulled pork in a slow cooker.
Of course, this is not a "real" barbecue.
So if, like me, you don't have a barbecue or a smoker, you need an alternative.
