Despite being as Latin as a foie gras taco, friends in the neighbourhood love to have a reason to celebrate. and if you are celebrating why not Cinco de Mayo? family, friends and food. you can’t lose.
so, it is just starting the bbq season here in Ontario and it has too long since I have done a pulled pork. historically, I haven’t had a large enough bbq to smoke a pulled pork. I had to rely on smoked paprika and a crockpot. it was good but not quite genuine bbq.
this year is different. I have the means and skill to pull off a fully smoked pulled pork. I am very excited.
the picture above is a picnic roast (a cut of meat from the whole pork shoulder without the bone) which is the best that I can get in the city without ordering from a butcher which I didn’t have time for this go. stop by after Cinco de Mayo to see the pulled pork and photos of all the festivities.
all the best,
