    Fox News' Take On "BBQ The Way It Was Meant To Be", Pulled Pork Recipe

    Recipe from Debi Morgan, of the Southern food blog 'Quiche My Grits', shared on Fox News: https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/s...ork-bbq-recipe

    I thought you'd all get a kick out of how they describe it as "BBQ the way it was meant to be".

    I mean, I wouldn't refuse it if I were at my parent's and they made this, it's probably tasty. But I also don't call McD's cheeseburgers, as much as I might like them, 'burgers the way they were meant to be.' At some point even a dummy has to be realistic.

    Liquid smoke, no brining, roasting at 350, the super short cook time, the use of burger, steak and jerk seasoning….the Dutch oven….

    🤮

      What a recipe, what a culinary mind she has....

    "The "Southern Pulled Pork BBQ" recipe just requires a Dutch oven, pork butt and a homemade barbecue rub. Of course, you also have to choose a barbecue sauce to serve with it. (Courtesy of Quiche My Grits)"

    well, what can you expect from someone whose site is "Quiche My Grits"

      It might not be barbecue, but it’s going to taste really good. It’s freakin’ slow cooked pork. Not much to go wrong here.

        true, I think what rankles is the 'this is the way it's supposed to be' rather than "this is an easy way to make pulled pork that is like BBQed". Even Kenji has a recipe like this and it makes sense for people who don't have a smoker and maybe can't (condo or apartment dwellers for example)

        That and the 'steak/burger/jerk seasoning' rather than just making a simple rub is kind of... meh

        Agreed. I’ve made this in the dead of winter, and I’ve been very pleased with it.

        I think she’s giving people permission to not be fussy. And that’s okay. It won’t be GREAT, but everyone will like it.

        Fully agree, as well; I can make me up some pulled pork, make ya wanna gnaw yer fingers off, down to yer third knuckles, indoors...ain't No Thing...

        But...I ain't gonna claim it's no BBQ. Jus Me...

      Well, she acknowledges that the traditional way to do it is to smoke it for 12 hours but most people don’t have an ‘expensive’ smoker so this is her alternative using stuff we would have around the house…

      But she calls this a really good rub and can’t be bothered to make her own sauce either.

      Oh man this is bad.

        So, I think we're being a little unfair. While the rub is a little... no, just no, the post that Fox piece excerpted is actually pretty decent https://quichemygrits.com/southern-p...ng-the-dry-rub

        FWIW, here's Kenji's take on oven pulled pork - https://www.seriouseats.com/easy-ove...ed-pork-recipe

        But it's way more complex and honestly, if I were doing this, I'd move more toward her approach of a rub, some liquid smoke and liquid and a good sauce on the side. I mean, I might even forgo smoke and simply roast it, getting some smoke via hickory powder and smoked paprika.

          You are way too reasonable, what fun is that? 😛

        "2 tablespoon. liquid smoke"

        Technically, that's BBQ. Right?

        rickgregory this is a perfectly reasonable indoor recipe that manages to avoid all of the terrible ideas

          Slow cookers are the spawn of the devil.

          But really, is that recipe that much better? It just says 'use your fave rub' which is fine... but kinda vague.

          The more I think about it, the more I think the whole slow cooker/dutch oven thing is the wrong approach. When we smoke a butt, we don't braise it in the cooker. It's done on the grill. Why not do the same in the oven, over a sheet pan, on a wire rack?

          Pulled pork ain't rocket science, though

          I generally do mine in a pan, on a rack...in th smoker.

          Try it out, see what ya think, Amigo...

          Also avoids that whole grease thing, in my cooker...

        Would you say liquid smoke is a moot point if you're using a storebought BBQ sauce at the end? To most folks, storebought BBQ sauce is the red sweet smokey stuff.

          Nah, I'd go ahead on, use me th liquid smoke ti infuse th pork...
          Sauce only coats th outside. I want th pork to have smoke flavour, afore it ever meets any sauce...

        Honestly, this is a pretty classic thing you see on a ton of food blogs. They aren’t trying to be “authentic” or “real” …. Instead, they are trying to provide something that people can easily do at home, without a ton of special equipment or knowledge. And get fairly close in flavor profile.

        Now, personally I think this is a cop out, but that’s because I spent a lot of years figuring out how to actually cook in the traditional ways. And it’s not actually that hard, other than the time investment.

        But our culture is now oriented around easy, fast, and sorta good enough. Very different from what my father taught me: “If thing is worth doing, it’s worth taking the time and doing the thing right.”

          My point wasn't so much the recipe itself, we've probaly all had crock pot pork and it's tasty; but calling it "barbecue the way it was meant to be" absolutely IS trying to be authentic, at least in its claims.

          And this is the only way to do pulled pork if you live in an apartment, condo or if you don't smoke enough to get a smoker.

          Huskee the title is horrible. But it is also click bait to get more visitors to the blog.
