In a related thread made mention of the pulled pork sandwich at the Cookhouse in Haliburton Forest. The sandwich was pretty good, but not as good as the one I have posted below. The reason this method for making pulled pork sandwiches is memorable is for the 10 hour cooking time the house never smelled better and the meat had spiced flavour right to the center as opposed to just on the outside.

The recipe comes from Guy Fieri, the food network chef who stars in "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives".

Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Recipe courtesy Guy Fieri
Prep Time: 50 min
Inactive Prep Time: 1 hr 30 min
Cook Time: 10 hr 0 min
Level: Intermediate
Serves: 12 to 16 servings

Ingredients

8 pound bone-in pork picnic shoulder
1/3 cup freshly cracked black pepper
3 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons granulated garlic powder
2 tablespoons granulated onion powder
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup ground cumin
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup hot dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 cup hickory chips, prepped, method follows
------------------------------------------------
Mop Sauce, recipe follows
Wilsons' BBQ Award Wining Eastern Carolina Vinegar Sauce, recipe
follows
Fo Slaw, recipe follows
Ciabatta rolls or other crunchy, chewy rolls
------------------------------------------------------
Directions

Rinse and dry the pork shoulder. Let rest at room temperature for 1
1/2 hours. In a small bowl, combine black pepper, paprika, garlic
powder, onion powder, salt, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, dry
mustard and cayenne. Rub mixture all over the pork.

Arrange the oven racks in the middle and lower parts of the oven and
preheat to 225 degrees F. Put a sheet tray on the lower rack and the
pork directly on the middle rack, uncovered.

Put the cast iron pan with the hickory chips on the floor of the oven. Remove the chips
after 2 hours of cook time. The entire cooking time will be 8 to 10
hours.

Apply mop sauce every hour throughout the cooking time.
In the last hour of cook time, remove pork, wrap it tightly in
plastic wrap, and then in aluminum foil and return to the oven for 1
more hour.

Remove the pork from the oven to a work surface. Let rest
until cool enough to pull the pork from the bones.

To serve, cut the buns in half and pile up some pulled pork. Top
with the Vinegar Sauce, then a large spoonful of the Fo Slaw and a
final spoonful of sauce. Cover with the bun top and serve.

Hickory Chip directions:
Soak the chips submerged in water for 15 minutes. While chips are
soaking, preheat a 9-inch cast iron pan on the stove top over medium
heat until it is ash-white hot. Remove chips from the water and add
to the cast iron pan. Put the pan on the bottom floor of the oven
for the first 2 hours of pork cooking time.

Mop Sauce recipe:

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons canola oil
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl and reserve.

Fo Slaw recipe:

3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon horseradish
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 head cabbage, cored, tough leaves removed and shredded
2 small carrots, shredded

Combine all the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl.
Adjust seasonings, if necessary. Add the cabbage and the carrots and
toss to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for1 hour.

Wilsons' BBQ Award Wining Eastern Carolina Vinegar Sauce:
Recipe courtesy Ed Wilson, Wilson's Holy Smoked BBQ

1 quart cider vinegar
1 cup water
1/8 cup red pepper flakes
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoons black pepper
1 (16-ounce) bottle ketchup
In a large saucepan, mix together all the ingredients, in the order
given, over low heat. Simmer for 30 minutes

Slomo, the only old style restaurant I've had pulled pork when in the States (not 1 to experiment) is the Galax Smokehouse in Galax, VA. It's south of Wytheville, VA, west of I-77 a few miles. If you've been in the Charlotte NC area, can you recommend any yourself?

Sorry revrnd - don't know that area. However, I would recommend trying this recipe yourself! We considered it for this weekend as it is a 'maintenance weekend' at the camp. However, going for day long baked beans instead.

If you guys are into cuisine...albeit strange stuff, check this show out.

These guys turn some weird stuff into some amazing looking meals. From cooking pigs in a hole in the ground to turning swamp rats into a creol jambalaya, they do it all.
