i heart bbq

okay, i could not be more excited about my most recent experiment! i am crazy for barbeque and am in a constant search for a great homemade sauce. of course, if you're a baby back rib fan, nothing comes close to the corner stable. best ribs in maryland - fries too for that matter. seriously, if you live in the baltimore area and have not been to the corner stable on york road, you are missing out my friend. in a beef brisket mood? andy nelsons wins hands down. the only problem with these 2 places - not exactly clean. nothing beats true bbq when you have a craving - it's worth a cheat meal. however, i need a clean alternative for pulled pork bbq.

E's cousins gave us a dinosaur bbq cookbook for a wedding gift and i dug it out the other weekend. a couple of tweaks to their signature mutha sauce later and here i am - happy and full.

i did the whole nine yards for my pulled pork sandwich. made the rub, low and slowed it in the oven (sorry no smoker - maybe i'll have one someday). i was disappointed in the pork (i think i cooked it too long) but loved the bbq sauce. this recipe makes lots of sauce. freeze leftovers.
