Summer time is BBQ time. Whether it's family, friends or a big party it's cookout time and here's a menu idea that will capture the attention and interest of your family or guests - delicious Memphis Style Pork Shoulder. Without a doubt it will surely satisfy everyone's appetite. Or, if you prefer to follow the more traditional route, try a different twist on some hamburgers and hot dogs. pork1pork1pork1pork1

To compliment the BBQ pork shoulder, coleslaw is a must. Also by adding grilled tomatoes and onion baked potatoes you'll have a meal combination that can't be beat. By the way, the tomatoes and potatoes can be done on the grill as well.

For a traditional ending serve generous slices of chilled watermelon for desert.

Prepare your grill to cook this entire meal by the indirect cooking method. Remove the cooking grid and place a shallow aluminum foil pan on the left or right side on the briquettes. Fill the pan with water. Replace cooking grid.

Memphis style BBQ Pork Shoulder
1 whole pork shoulder (about 8 pounds), bone-in
2 cups vinegar
1/4 cup Louisana Hot Sauce
1 tbs. red pepper flakes (optional)
5 or 6 handful hickory wood chips, soaked in water overnight

Mix vinegar, hot sauce and red pepper flakes. Place pork shoulder on cooking grid over the water pan. Insert a meat thermometer in the thickest portion of the shoulder and cook at low 6 to 8 hours. Basting often and adding wood chips and/or water as needed. The shoulder should be cooked until it is just about ready to fall apart (meat thermometer should read 170°). Remove from grill and allow the meat to cool just long enough to handle. Tear it up into shreds and serve with barbecue sauce of your choice on hamburger bums or as entree.

Grilled Tomatoes
