As a follow up to our last blog about tailgating, we wanted to share one of our go-to recipes and family favorite tailgate recipe. Pulled pork is an ideal tailgate dish: can be made ahead and reheated at the tailgate lot, can be scooped onto a mini slider bun to eaten while standing and also doesn't need silverware to consume! And who can resist bbq yumminess? We serve the pulled pork with to a relish tray of assorted pickles and peppers.
