Larsen Barbecue

Ok, I have had a few requests for these BBQ recipes, so I am putting them here, enjoy.

Pulled Pork
1 picnic pork roast or a pork shoulder

Rub the meat with a mixture of 3 Tbs. kosher salt, 2 Tbs. pepper, 2 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. onion salt, 1 tsp. cayenne, 1/4 cup paprika, and 1/4 cup brown sugar.

Do the rub on the meat the night before, so it has time to marinade in it, then cook one of the following ways.

You can either cook it in a crock pot on low for 6-8 hours or in the oven covered very tightly with 2-3 layers of foil for 6-8 hours at 275.

When the meat is done, shred it and add BBQ sauce.

Baked Beans
1 lb. bacon, browned and cut into pieces
2 large cans pork and beans {I use Bush's Original}
(This is the semi-homemade and easy was, you can do your own beans if you want)
1 medium onion, diced {I use the dried onions}
1/2 cup catsup
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. molasses
3/4 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. celery salt
5 Tbsp. bbq sauce

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 2 hours. Really yummy if you can cook it in a dutch oven.

BBQ sauces:

Alabama White BBQ sauce

1 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
4 TBS. white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. pepper (it is quite a bit, so it has a good kick, if you don't like too spicy, cut this back)
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
mix all together, cover and chill

(Now we use this on regular pulled pork, but it is really, really yummy when you cook the pork in a crock pot in 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water, 3 TBS. brown sugar, 2 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. pepper, 1/2 tsp. ground red pepper, 1 tsp. chili powder and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Cook on low 6 hours, shred the meat and continue cooking for another hour. Top with white sauce on rolls.)

Sweet and Tangy BBQ sauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup ketchup
1 TBS. Worcestershire
1 TBS. A1 steak sauce
1 TBS. yellow mustard
1 TBS vinegar
1 TBS vegetable oil
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
dash of ground cloves

Bring to boil and simmer 5-10 minutes.

Bold and Spicy BBQ sauce
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbs. molasses
2 tsp. yellow mustard
1 TBS. Tabasco sauce
1 Tbs BBQ rub (recipe above)
2 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Combine in saucepan, bring to boil over medium-high heat. turn to a simmer for 10-15 minutes.

My favorite is to have both ref sauces and mix together, but I like them separate as well.

I also like to serve it with coleslaw, so this is the recipe I use
2 pounds shredded cabbage
4 carrots shredded
1 medium onion chopped (I leave this out sometimes)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup mustard
2 tsp. cider vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. black pepper
dash of cayenne pepper

Mix dressing and pour over vegetables, cover and chill for 2 hours.
