    I have a recipe for Bill's Tennessee Pulled Pork BBQ

    1 pork shoulder, (6-
    8 lbs.)

    ------------ SAUCE ---------------
    2 cup ketchup
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup vinegar
    2 Tb yellow prepared mustard
    1 Tb Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon lemon juice


    Place pork shoulder in a large Dutch oven; cover with foil.

    Bake in oven at 275 degrees all night, or at least 8 hours. Remove from oven; let cool enough to touch. Pull meat from bone with fingers; "string" the larger pieces, discarding the fat. Place meat in a large casserole dish or Dutch oven; prepare sauce. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan; bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour sauce over meat; cover with foil.

    Place back in oven; bake at 275 degrees for 3 hours. (Serve on warmed hamburger buns with your favorite trimmings!)

    ~Part 2~

    Mix the paprika, garlic power, brown sugar, dry mustard, and salt together in a small bowl. Rub the spice blend all over the pork and marinate for as long as you have time for, as little as 1 hour or up to overnight, covered, in the refrigerator.
    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
    Put the pork in a roasting pan and bake for about 6 hours. Basically, roast the pork until it's falling apart and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 170 degrees F.
    To make the barbecue sauce: combine the vinegar, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, salt, cayenne, and black pepper in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer gently, stirring, for 10 minutes until the sugar dissolves.
    Remove the pork roast from the oven and transfer to a large platter. Allow the meat to rest for about 10 minutes. While still warm, take 2 forks and "pull" the meat to form shreds. Using 2 forks, shred the pork by steadying the meat with 1 fork and pulling it away with the other. Put the shredded pork in a bowl. Pour 1/2 of the sauce on the shredded pork and mix well to coat.
    To serve, spoon the pulled pork mixture onto the bottom 1/2 of the hamburger bun, and top with the spicy slaw. Serve with pickle spears and the remaining sauce on the side.

    Tennessee Jack Daniel's Coca-Cola BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches


    5 to 6 pounds boneless center cut pork loin or pork shoulder (remove the fat back from the shoulder), sliced in half at its widest point
    (This can also be made with brisket of beef.)

    For the Marinade:

    4 cups cola, Dr Pepper, black cherry soda, or root beer
    1 cup Worcestershire sauce
    2 Tbsp cider vinegar
    12 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 Tbsp Tabasco sauce
    2 tsp celery salt

    For the Jack and Coke BBQ Sauce:

    1 cup ketchup
    2/3 cup coca-cola
    1/3 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
    1/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce, or other hot sauce of your choice
    2 Tbsp honey
    1 Tbsp soy sauce
    Goya Adobo seasoning or kosher salt, to taste
    6 kaiser rolls
    Salt and pepper


    Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl, pan, or pot large enough to hold all the pork. Add the pork, turning to be sure it is well coated, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    Combine the ingredients for the Jack and Coke BBQ Sauce.
    Place the marinated meat in a roasting pan. Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil and cook the pork in the preheated oven for 1-1/2 hours. Pour off 2/3 of the liquid in the pan and spread the meat with the barbecue sauce and return it to the oven, uncovered, for another 1-1/2 hours. When the pork is done, it will shred easily with a fork. Test it, and if it's still a bit difficult to shred, return it to the oven for another 15 minutes and try again.
    When the meat is done, remove it from the oven and shred it with a fork. Slice the rolls in half, pile on the pork, and serve with creamy coleslaw.

    Yield: 6 servings

    Heinz has had this recipe on their website and says it is from Tenn.

    Pulled Pork with Root Beer BBQ Sauce Ingredients:

    1 Tablespoon Tabasco
    2 heads garlic, cloves separated and peeled
    1 1/2 cups Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar
    1/2 cup Heinz Ketchup
    1 8 lb. Pork Shoulder
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    Salt and Pepper
    1 teaspoon Kosher salt
    1/2 cup Yellow Mustard
    2 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter
    1 2 liter bottle Root Beer
    2 Tablespoons Heinz Worcestershire Sauce


    Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

    Place the pork shoulder, fat side up, in a large roasting pan and season well with salt and pepper to taste. Toss two (2) heads of garlic cloves that have been peeled, but put cloves left whole around the pork.

    Cover well with heavy duty aluminum foil. Slow cook in the oven until tender and falling apart and the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. This should take about six (6) to eight (8) hours. Remove from the oven and let the pork rest for 20 to 30 minutes. With two (2) forks, pull apart the meat into small chunks. Toss with the root beer BBQ sauce and serve.

    Root Beer BBQ Sauce:

    Reduce the root beer to 1 C over medium heat in a large saucepan -- this takes about one (1) hour.
    Add the Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar, Heinz Ketchup, Heinz Yellow Mustard, lemon juice, Heinz Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Stir well and simmer for twenty (20) minutes. Finish the sauce by whisking in the cold butter for extra body and flavor.
