Classic Cole Slaw

One of my all-time favorites, the Classic Cole Slaw. Arne Aben, one of my friends, got me hooked to this slaw, and since then, I can’t skip it anymore and I really like it. Simple, but very fresh to eat and easy to make.

Ingredients :

  • Oxheart Cabbage (about 4-500 grams of it)
  • about 10 regular carrots
  • 2 table spoons of white wine vinaigre
  • 10 table spoons of yoghurt
  • 2 table spoons of mustard
  • 2 hands of almond scavings
  • 2 hands of raisins

Simple as ever, but just cut up the cabbage in very fine slices and grate up the carrots. Mix it well with the vinaigre, yoghurt and mustard and finally, add the almonds and raisins.

Always good to have with a nice BBQ.

 

Classic Pulled Pork

Today, being a day off in the Netherlands, Liberation Day, I’ve chosen to do a long, long overdue low and slow pulled pork. I got myself a great boston butt and started with a great rub, the Carolina Dry Rub on it. Classic, but you can’t beat it.

First, I defrosted my little butt yesterday evening, and rubbed it in completely with my Carolina Sweetness.

A good night in the fridge, packed in plastic will do the trick nice, and this morning, I fired up the WSM and filled the bowl with water. Also added some chunks of Apple wood to the coals.

Around 120 degrees Celcius it came, and my meat went up nice and quietly. The pork went pretty fast up to around 70 degrees Celcius, and remained there for about the entire afternoon…..

By now, it was about 4,5 hours of core temperatures of in the 70’s. But it started moving again!!!! Fortunately! Around 19:30 the pork was done. 12 hours exactly.  94 degrees Celcius and ready to come off. I choose not to wrap it around 70 degrees in Aluminum Foil, but keep it going a bit longer and slower to get a better bark.

After pulling it, I made some great sandwiches with some warmed up BBQ sauce, and it was delicious. Really good with some Coleslaw too! (recipe under the link! )

I’ve had a great meal after a good day of grillin’!

(tip:  You can deepfreeze your pulled pork, but don’t mix in the sauce just yet. Freeze just the meat, and add the sauce when you’re re-heating it)

Carolina Dry Rub

Carolina dry rub is a great rub for Pulled Pork. I’ve not invented this rub, but I do love it a lot! It’s great for pork, really!

The ingredients are :

  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons of chilipowder
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly grounded black pepper
  • 1 coffee spoon of cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons of paprika powder

Mix it all up well, and put it on your meat and let it rest overnight in the fridge, before starting the cook! Lovely!
