Cooking this roast long and slow makes for a tasty, tender sandwich. Top the sandwich with some coleslaw for a crunchy, cool contrast. Have your favorite side dishes and some cold watermelon for dessert.

Ingredients

  • 5 1/2 pounds boneless blade pork roast
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (crushed)
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • hot pepper sauce (to taste)
  • 12 hamburger buns (split and toasted)
  • coleslaw (optional)
  • 4 cups snack chips (wood, use hickory or oak for best flavor)

Directions

  1. 1In medium bowl, combine vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, salt and hot pepper sauce. Divide sauce into two portions; set aside.
  2. 2At least 1 hour before grilling, soak wood chips in enough water to cover; drain before using. Rub meat with salt and black pepper. In a charcoal grill with a cover, place preheated coals around a drip pan for medium indirect heat. Add 1/2 inch hot water to drip pan. Sprinkle half of the drained wood chips over the coals. Place meat on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill about 4 hours or until meat is very tender. Add more preheated coals (use a hibachi or a metal chimney starter to preheat coals), wood chips and hot water every 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Remove meat from grill; cover with foil and let stand for 20-30 minutes. Using a fork, shred meat into long, thin strands. Pour sauce over shredded meat; toss to coat. Serve on toasted buns. If desired, top meat with coleslaw. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
