BBQ Throwdown

When I go home to South Carolina, there are a few places I'll probably eat at, but there's only one place I must eat at--Duke's Barbeque. It's Southern food at it's best.

In the spirit of Bobby Flay, I had a bbq (pulled pork) throwdown with another Adobe employee, Joann, who's from Texas. We went to split a Boston Butt (Pork Shoulder) from Costco, got our respective sauces flown in from our states, and went to cooking.

I just put mine in a Crockpot overnight for about 10 hours on low with a little bit of water. In the morning I took it out.

I then shredded it up and put it back in the crockpot.

And the piece da resistance.

I just poured some sauce in and let it all simmer for another 2 or 3 hours on low in the crockpot.

During the "throwdown" we took an informal vote, and it came out about 50/50. It's hard to beat the real-deal from South Carolina. This one was a tad too moist in my opinion, and that came from cooking it in the crockpot versus a smoker or even the oven. However, I have to say the bbq definitely hit the spot, and I had a great time at the party.
