Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

Published On July 15, 2013 | By Peter Georgakopoulos | Bourbon, Entree, Food

I was so grateful when I was asked to prepare this recipe for The Boys Club. With the weather being on the chilly side here in Sydney, this brought much needed warmth and happiness. Fire up the barbecue (in my case, I used an oven!), and get your barbecue sauce ready. Today we’re going “low and slow” with some pulled pork sandwiches and a bourbon BBQ sauce.

I’ve been wanting to attempt some sort of pulled pork recipe ever since I can remember. There’s something so uniquely satisfying about indulging in slow-cooked meats. You might have to wait a little longer than normal, but the end results are worth it.

Today’s recipe is in two parts. First, there’s a dry rub for the pork shoulder. And secondly, the barbecue sauce with bourbon, which accompanies it. When these two meet in a sandwich, it’s like scoring the jackpot! Yep. It’s that good.

It was that barbecue sauce that seduced me though. The bourbon was the magic ingredient that brought it all together. It provided a caramel-like sweetness that worked perfectly with the slow-cooked pork. And the reheated leftovers tasted even better the next day. The flavours had developed and become even more pronounced.

So what are you waiting for? Now you have an even better excuse to enjoy summer!

  1. Barbecue sauce without bourbon is a travesty in my book; it adds an element that ups the volume just perfectly.

  2. Oh, this is the first time I hear about sauce with addition of Bourbon, but I love it already :)

    Oh wow. I’ve made bourbon barbecue sauce for pork ribs before, but I love the idea of slathering it over succulent pulled pork before stuffing the pork and coleslaw into a soft white roll. Awesome recipe Peter. Can’t wait to try it/ I also love the fact that this recipe has helped me find The Boy’s Club! Great cocktail resource (I’m going to be drunk for many weekends from now on!)

  4. This set up appears to be for you to recieve a huge ammount of visitors. How can you get targeted customers to it? It provides a pleasant exceptional spin in points. I suppose possessing anything at all authentic or perhaps substantial to talk about is the most important aspect.
