From the Archives: Crispy Pork Shoulder

J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

Pork shoulder is one of the most inexpensive, foolproof, and delicious cuts of meat around. If good flavor-for-the-buck value is what you're looking for, pork shoulder is perhaps the greatest of all bits of culinary alchemy. It's the transformation of one of the cheapest cuts of meat in the butcher's display case into one of the most festive centerpieces imaginable, in all of it's juicy, porky, spoon-tender in the middle, impossibly crisp and crusty-on-the-outside glory.

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

Pulled pork is the most ubiquitous barbecue in Chicago, but it's not always the best. While it took some effort to track down, there is pulled pork worth celebrating here. More

So This Exists: The BBQ Pulled Pork Cupcake at Bourbon Steak in Washington, DC

Brian Oh 17 comments

You'd be forgiven if your first thought when hearing mention of Georgetown's Bourbon Steak is... well... steak. But that's not what we're here to talk about today. It's about a bar snack at Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak in the Georgetown Four Seasons: the BBQ Pulled Pork Cupcake. A long time fan of Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuit (who isn't?), Executive Chef Adam Sobel created his own version with cheddar and scallion, despite the original recipe being a closely guarded secret, shaped it into a cupcake, and stuffed it with smoked pork shoulder.

A Sandwich A Day: Eli's BBQ in Cincinnati

A Sandwich a Day Laura Arnold 3 comments

Eli's BBQ sits along the banks of the Ohio River in a nondescript residential neighborhood. There aren't any words on the restaurant's signage; just a straightforward symbol of a pig. And while it may not look like much from the outside, Eli's is worth the porky pilgrimage, if for nothing else than what is the best pulled pork sandwich in Cincinnati. More

First Look: Butcher Bar in Astoria

New York Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Unlike its Brooklyn smokehouse neighbors Fette Sau and Fatty 'Cue, which also tout responsibly sourced, high quality meat, Butcher Bar is designed to be a butcher shop first and a restaurant second. As it happens, barbecue was added to encourage thrifty Astorian locals to pay a little more for non-industrial meat. It's a hell of a carrot to complement an already carrot-like stick. More

A Sandwich a Day: Pulled Pork from Slow's Barbecue in Detroit

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 3 comments

Detroit doesn't exactly have a style of barbecue it can call all its own, which is why Slow's, an institution-in-the-making on the main strip of Michigan Ave doesn't really have a style of its own either. Instead, you'll find their own versions of staples from around the country like Texas-style brisket, Carolina-style pulled pork, or St. Louis ribs. More

Serious Eats' Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 21 comments

To get that great slow-cooked smokiness, the spiced and rubbed pork belly or butt is grilled over smoldering coals and wood chips until it gets all pull-apart-y. Tossed in a sauce of sweet-tangy cider vinegar, hot sauce, and chile flakes, our pulled pork is pretty darn close to the real-deal, even more so when topped with finely chopped coleslaw and served on that perfect kind of squishy white bread bun.

Some Tasty Bites at the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Fair

Hub Grub Liz Bomze Post a comment

As summer fairs go, the one put on by the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Society every August isn't huge, but it's great and has everything you'd want: skillet tosses, the watergun game, overgrown vegetables that win ribbons, and, of course, booth after booth of junk food. More

A Sandwich a Day: Pulled Pork Torta from Izzoz Tacos in Austin, TX

A Sandwich a Day Erin Zimmer 1 comment

Even if you come to Izzoz (pronounced eee-zoz) Tacos with the best intentions of ordering tacos, you may leave the cart with a pulled pork torta ($6.50), which is fine (as long as you also try the tacos at some point). The pork is juicy, slightly sweet and smoky with a punch of heat; it's been slow-roasting overnight with ancho chiles. More

Lexington Dip

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 20 comments

This isn't a sauce you'd baste on grilled chicken, but rather, as the name implies, it's used as a dip or topping. Tasted alone, it's harsh with a strong bite of vinegar and a heat that starts to border on excessive. Introduce it to pile of pulled pork though, and it's a match made in barbecue heaven. More

Barbecue: Mini Pulled Pork Empanadas

Serious Eats Joshua Bousel 9 comments

There wasn't anything not to love here. The pulled pork was as smoky and tender as always, with the added tang and spice from the sauce, and the empanada crust was flaky and crisp. They'd be perfect for this weekend's couch marathon, AKA the Oscars. More

Dinner Tonight: Barbecue Spaghetti

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

I realize barbecue spaghetti sounds wrong. The authentic pasta lover in me scoffs at the heavy-handed sauce, while my barbecue side can't deal with the meat playing second fiddle to noodles. But while it may be "mutant barbecue," as it is called in the caption in this recipe from Mike Mills's Peace, Love, & Barbecue, that doesn't mean it isn't good. More

Five Nacho Variations

Lee Frank 19 comments

As editor of the site Nachos NY, it's obvious that I love nachos. But people always ask me, can one nacho really be that different from the next? Enough to inspire a whole blog? Oh, they absolutely can. Here are five variations on the nacho in honor of National Nacho Day (technically last Saturday, but it's never too late to celebrate) with cheesesteak, carne asada, buffalo chicken, pulled pork, and a dessert spin with Rice Krispies treats and brownies.
