Ok, I’m not bragging……but…………
We got together with family and friends at our house for July 4th
Romeo and I make some BBQ…..in the south it is pronounced as….BAW-BEEEE-CUE
And here is where the NOT bragging part comes in.
We have to be ready, when the party is over, with little to-go boxes full of BBQ for our guests.
It is always a crowd pleaser.
And people are ALWAYS impressed by our culinary skills.
But this is where I need you to keep something secret.
Just between us.
IT IS SO DANG EASY!
And can feed a ton of people…..you can freeze leftovers…..pretty affordably.
BUT most importantly…..
It’s dang easy people!
Wanna know the secret recipe?
Ok, but please try it…..I don’t want you to think this is sooooo easy that it can’t be that good.
You won’t even need paper and pencil.
Buy a Boston Butt. (I used three for our party….we had a lot of people and with giving so much away, I would prob use four next time)
Put them in a FOIL WRAPPED roasting pan. Trust me on this one. (the secret ingredient will make your pan awful without foil)
Got your butts in the pan…..now season your butts. (hee hee)
I use: Lawrys seasoned salt, garlic and onion powder. Mostly Lawrys….second most garlic….leastly onion powder. Apparently this blend of seasonings is part of the process because in using others….just not the same.
No salt and pepper….shocker……but for real…this blend works out well.
But here is the super secret part. The one that will make your BUTTS stand out to America! (hee hee again!)
Do you even know what it is?
Do you use it?
It is corn syrup. It is found where pancake syrup is found.
And for three butts…..I poured 1 3/4 bottles on my BUTTS. (hoo hoo, hee hee, ha ha)
I promise….this is what makes it so good. AND so EASY!
Wrap it tightly in foil……and I put mine in the oven OVERNIGHT! (Just added this note: Michelle spoke up in the comment section that I didn’t really say how long to cook this….good point!!! I put mine on about 12 hours. She loved it….you will too!!!)
I use the temp 200 to 225 degrees and “SET IT AND FORGET IT“! (name that infomercial)
This is what I love about this recipe. It cooks while you are sleeping…….it will be done when guest arrive…..SO EASY!
You wake up to a delicious smell.
Warning: Your family will expect something for breakfast because it smells so yummy in the mornings.
And this is where it takes a teeny bit of effort and one more SECRET ingredient.
I use throwaway foil pans for my final BBQ step. (this is NOT the secret ingredient but you will love using these pans….your main pan will already be cleaned up when guest arrive and foil pans can just be chunked when guest leave)
Start peeling the fat of your butt, one butt at a time. (ON a side-note…..wouldn’t it be nice if we could just peel the fat of our butts, for real?)
Back to the recipe.
Take hunks of meat and transfer to your foil pan.
It will shred so easily.
I used 1 1/2 butts per pan.
Take a cup and get the good stuff from your pan where your butts cooked overnight.
Pour it over your shredded meat…….I do it until it looks a little juicy on bottom. (ignore fuzzy shot…sticky one handed shot)
Then YOUR NEXT SECRET INGREDIENT.
Don’t be ashamed of me.
I promise…..the “Karo” has done the fancy stuff……
I literally use a Honey BBQ of any brand that is on sale. I used Kraft this time because of a deal on Roll back prices at Walmart.
I used about 1 big bottle per 1 1/2 butts.
Pour it over your meat………mix it up a bit with a fork………..wrap in foil and put it back in the oven to warm up good…..warm up real good.
That is how easy.
For real. The Karo……..cooking it so long…………easy seasonings….your friends will request it…….talk about it…..
Your BUTT will NEVER HAVE LOOKED SO GOOD!
You may want to pretend you slaved over it. It will taste like it.
Tomorrow I will tell you how I make a super, tasty, always requested, cole-slaw….
That you put on the sandwich.
Then the cooking channel will be over on this blog for a bit.
I’m pretty limited.
