This recipe is definitely an art and not a science, so change it however you see fit!
Pork Picnic Roast (usually 1/2lb per person with meat, but for this since it’s shredded average about 1/3lb per person)
BBQ Sauce (any kind you like!)
Salt & Pepper
Sandwich buns or rolls
There’s two ways you can cook the roast: crock pot or oven
Place roast into pot sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder enough to cover all sides and sprinkle on liquid smoke (between 1/4 – 1/8 tsp per pound)
Cook roast on low for 6 hours, drain most of the juice
Shred meat and add BBQ Sauce (use enough to really saturate the meat, for 6+ pounds plan on a whole large bottle of sauce)
Cook on low 20 more minutes for sauce to really flavor the meat
Divide meat into baking dishes depending on how many pounds of meat you have (a 9×13 should have no more than 4 pounds in it)
Season meat with liquid smoke, garlic powder, salt & pepper enough to cover entire roast (see liquid smoke guide above)
Put into a 300F oven and bake for 3 hours
Take out the roast, drain most of the juice
Shred the meat and add BBQ Sauce (see above guide)
Place back into warm oven (can be off) and let it set 20 mins or so and serve warm
I like to serve this sandwich with chips and salad. For a super yummy, healthy kick to your salad add yellow and red peppers, sprinkle the whole salad with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and flax seed meal then add your favorite dressing and serve. Tastes great!
I hope you enjoy! This is a fun meal for entertaining!
