Kansas-Style BBQ

8:41 AM

It's summer time! What does that mean? BBQ, Burgers, Watermelon, Potato Salad, and all those good things! I thought that I should try a new BBQ recipe after trying a new turkey burger recipe. So, here it is!


- 2.5 Pork loin roast (try to find the leanest one you can)
- 2 tsp red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp Hickory liquid smoke
- 1 tsp garlic salt / powder
- 1 tsp sea salt

- 1 1/3 C tomato sauce
- 1/3 C tomato paste
- 1/2 C + 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1/3 C molasses
- 2 tsp Hickory liquid smoke
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/8 tsp chili powder


For the Pork
- Cover the pork in the ingredients listed above for Pork. Put in a crock pot and cook on high for five and a half hours.
- Take the bone out of the pork. The meat should be so tender that you can just pull the pieces of bone out of it without having to really work at it.

- Remove the pork from the crockpot and drain the pot of all the excess fat/liquid. Shred the pork using two forks on an extra plate or in the crockpot (once you've drained it).

- Add 1 1/4 C of the sauce and cook on high for another 45 minutes to an hour.

For the Sauce

- Mix together the ingredients listed in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to low if serving on the side, or turn it off after boiling for 30 seconds to a minute.

*I would say make sure you have the tomato sauce and paste, the molasses, and the seasonings that you needed to cook your pork in. Everything else is entirely up to you depending on the flavor you want, but those ingredients are vital!*

Serve the BBQ any way you like it! By itself, on a bun, on a sandwich... the possibilities are endless!

Inspiration for the pork and sauce came from Skinnytaste.com!
