Pulled Pork - good times
Was a busy weekend. Cooked some ribs last Friday with decent results. I needed to pay more attention to what I was doing. I cooked 3 racks.

Capt. Morgan suggested Apple juice but I could not seem to wrangle any. I used apples. Next time I'm using the juice.
Slaw! My favorite salad. Had out the Kroger's Thick and Spicy but ended up making sauce.

looks pretty good to me.....if you don't have apple juice, just
add a little water in the foil to create a moister environment.

I sure learned a lot about spare ribs. Water would have worked nicely. One rack was really dry and the other two were pretty good. Like I said, next time I have spare ribs I will be better prepared to do it right. Thanks for your insight.

My brother still swears by boiling them and I just can't bring myself to boil meat unless its corned beef.

Looks tasty! Did you like what the apples did, but think the juice would be better or were the apples of no use?

I am a sauce addict so I will be trying yours soon! :lol:

Don't think the apples made a big difference except for the moisture they gave up. I think juice would be the way to go, or cider. I am excited to try again.

I have a bunch of sauce recipes and would be happy to post some of the better ones. The one I used for the ribs and the butt is my bourbon bbq sauce. Its not quite as sweet as my normal sauces, but pretty good. I use a butcher cut black pepper which is like a cracked pepper, not a ground pepper. Sounds trivial but makes a difference. I have another bourbon bbq recipe that is excellent but a bit expensive to make a it has maple syrup and vanilla and other pricy ingredients but I will find it and put it in the recipe section. I will drop you a note when I do.
