 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Pork shoulder roast
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Celery seed
  • 1/16 ts Cinnamon, ground
  • 3/16 c Vinegar, cider
  • 1/4 c Catsup
  • 1/4 ts Chili powder
  • 1/4 ts Nutmeg, ground
  • 1/4 ts Sugar
  • 1/2 c Water
  • Vinegar, cider; to taste
  • Sauce, Tabasco; to taste


Brown roast in a small amount of fat and place in a Dutch oven. Mix the
next 9 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour over roast and
cover. Bake in a preheated 325^ oven, 40 minutes to the pound, until done,
basting occasionally with drippings.

Transfer roast to a chopping board. Remove meat from the bone and chop
into fairly fine pieces. Season to taste with additional vinegar and hot
sauce. Serve hot with coleslaw and corn bread.

Sylvia's comments: I found some stew pork marked WAY down, bought several
packages ($.99/lb!) and stuck them in the freezer. Then I put all the
ingredients, including the still-frozen pork, in the crockpot this morning.
Tonight it was done, I just mashed up the meat with a fork and knife and
served it over rice. The vinegar produces a very interesting taste.
However, it came out kind of soupy; next time I'll leave out the water and
increase the catsup.

This is the most popular barbecue dish in North Carolina, and, as far as we
know, it is indigenous to that state.

Apple's comments: I made this for supper tonight and it is GOOD!
