    Hello All!

    I started smoking about 4 months ago and needless to say I am hooked in a great way!  End up smoking 1-2 times a week now, especially pork butts because we love Pulled Pork(PP).  The problem is that the good old stand by of pulled pork, slaw, and a nice bun gets old after a bit which got the misses and I thinking about what else we can do so we of course tried nachos and the like.  Monday night I went home and the wife ended up making up some PP stir fry over rice and it was honestly one of the best things I have tasted with this wonderful meat.  Does anyone else re-use their PP in ways that aren't "standard"

    Figured this would be a fun discussion!

    Chili , Shepards Pie , stuffed in peppers(Jalapeno) , stuffed Bell Peppers , as seasoning in Beans or Soup , and something I like to fix when I have some leftover is PP and a good sharp cheddar thrown in a pan and melted together with peppers , onions and Cornbread on the side...

    just off the top of my head ! :biggrin:

    These are all good ideas. I have also wondered why PP wouldn't be a good base for brunswick stew. While not pulled, you can always take it off at 185* and slice it. This leaves you all of the options of a regular plate. Cabbage, corn, green beans, broccoli, baked sweet potato and all that other stuff. Good luck, that's a great problem to have.

    My wife told me to try to eat a bit more healthy, so I made me a salad and topped it with the rest of my last pulled pork. I'm not sure I can eat a salad without it now lol.
     
  6. We like pizza (with 50/50 bbq sauce/tomato sauce), and enchiladas. The sky is the limit.

    I have never thought about that one!  Have you ever tried injecting your PP with some Enchilada Sauce?

    Well some of it depends on your freezer space.

    I alway buy the 2 pack of butt's at Cash & Carry.  I season one with BBQ seasoning, and one I season with taco seasoning.  The taco seasoned one gets pulled and used for taco's, nacho's, chimmies, stuffed peppers, and as a base for my pork/chili soup.

    So many things you can do.
