So, if Texas barbecue pork does have a tradition pulled-pork, how it feels? I decided to do some experiments. Now, please keep in mind that I'm working with an oven and no smoke so this is not true barbecue. But I've found that when you cook the meat in a coffee scrub with a lot of chipotle powder and smoked paprika for heat and smoke, if you close your eyes, you may just swear you were in Texas. I decided to apply this rub to pork shoulder bone in an attempt to make a pile of Texas barbecue pork.Many consultations took me to the conclusion that the best way to cook pulled pork in the oven is to cook dried at a low temperature for a long time. I was dubious at first, but there is so much fat in the pork shoulder which makes the meat moist. And the lack of extra fluid guarantee that you will get great skin, which is fun to chop and mix with a string of tender juicy meat. People usually avoid the barbecue sauce with me, but I think the bright smoky chipotle sauce with a hint of lime will increase the flavor of the meat. (Note that many barbecue places in the South-East of North Carolina-just throw their pulled pork with apple cider vinegar and chili flakes-is delicious as well.)

With this inexpensive setup you will be able to have two days Meatfest starting with your favorite grilled vittles and culminating in a stunning Kalua pig. Here is the disclaimer: This involves stone stove heating up to a dangerous temperature, and then cover them with potentially flammable vegetation and then leaving it unattended for hours. If you are careless or unlucky you may burn. Leafy GREEN BRANCH, OR PLANT STEM SOAKED WOOD - you need enough moisture to create a buffer layer between the hot rocks and pork. Authentic materials freshly cut banana tree stump. This moist and fibrous and not burning, thus creating a delicious, smoky steam to cook pork. In the Mid-Atlantic United States I have to use something more local and go with maple and hickory branch with the leaves still on. You can try a few other ingredients as well; any type of wood used for cooking / smoking should work well here. I want to try next corn stalks.BANANA LEAF - this is to wrap and flavor of pork. I could be frozen banana leaves in the Latino market near my house for $ 1 package. If you can not get in banana leaves, you can use foil, but then it would not Kalua Pig.
