This is the real deal. (Family recipe from my mother in law. She grew up in rural NC and comes from a big family of talented, amazing cooks who, to my knowledge, do not use written recipes – all the knowledge is in their heads and hands. The only way to really learn is to get in that hot kitchen, roll up your sleeves, and try to keep up!)
Slow roasted pork butt cooked with Secret Apple Cider Vinegar sauce. Shredded and served hot on a toasted bun with spicy, vinegary cole slaw (no mayo in this cole slaw. If you are ever served a Carolina BBQ sandwich that has mayo in the cole slaw you need to ask for your money back ) The pickles usually go on the sandwich but I’m putting them on the side to make the plate look pretty. Hush puppies are the traditional gut buster side to this sandwich, but I think they are too sweet and cornmeal-y and heavy so French fries are my only break from tradition with this dish.
It’s delicious with a cold glass of Sweet Mint Earl Grey Iced tea. A taste of North Carolina without the humidity or the mosquitoes!
