Danielle's Jamaican Jerk Pulled Pork Sandwich

This exotically delicious alternative to traditional smoked pulled pork was created by Danielle Nichols, the winner of a recent Crock Pot Game on the Carolina Sauce Company Facebook page.

Danielle's blog is called Cooking for my Peace of Mind, and you'll find many more of her mouthwatering masterpieces there, along with easy-to-follow directions with plenty of illustrative photos.

Danielle's blog also includes instructions for making "staple" foods at home that you might otherwise buy, like English muffins or tofu, making it an excellent resource for anyone interested in making more of their food from scratch instead of buying packaged or processed foods at the supermarket.

I also follow Danielle's Peaceful Cooking page on Facebook, and you should, too -- check it out, and let her know you found her through Carolina Sauce.

Danielle was kind enough to give me permission to post her recipe here, along with the gorgeous photo she took of her Jamaican jerk pulled pork sandwich. Read Danielle's original recipe on her blog for more background information as well as several helpful photos showing the pork butt as it cooked.

3 lbs Boston Butt, aka pork shoulder or pork butt
2 oz Busha Browne's Traditional Jerk Seasoning Rub
12 oz beer
Chicken broth or water

Preheat your oven to 275° F. Rub the seasoning all over the pork butt and place in a roasting pan. Pour the beer into the roasting pan. Add enough chicken broth or water (if using water, add some chicken bouillon if you have it) to bring the liquid up to the mid-point of your meat. Cover the pan tightly with foil and roast for about 6-7 hours, until fall-apart tender: Danielle says that when she tried to remove the cooked butt from the pan with a fork and spatula, the meat was so tender that it fell apart.

Use a couple of forks to shred the meat. Pour some of the juices from the roasting pan over the pulled pork and dive in. Or, make Danielle's sandwich: Pile some of the pulled pork onto a bun and top with your favorite coleslaw. Danielle adds some finely chopped pineapple, mango and strawberries to her creamy slaw to add tropical flair that beautifully complements the Jamaican jerk flavors of the meat.

Thanks, Danielle, for letting me share your recipe with my readers!
