Fret not, my fellow Tarheels: I haven't turned my back on North Carolina Barbecue! I just wanted to try something different this time.
The sauce actually started out as Texas BBQ style. But then I got inspired and added the juices of fresh pineapple, mango and lemon along with some coconut water. The result is a spicy, tangy, sweet sauce that's fabulous with the pulled pork!
I cooked the pork roast all day long in the crock pot, about eight hours. All day long, Doggie's and LoLo's little noses were twitching and they kept looking up at me, licking their lips very expectantly. :) <3
When it was done, I carefully removed the roast to a serving dish, removed the excess fat, and then did the "pulling."
I let the sauce stand for a few minutes in the crock pot and then siphoned off the excess grease (there was a LOT of it) with a turkey baster, and got as much of the rest of it as I could by layering heavy paper towels on the surface to soak up some more.
I then poured about half of the sauce over the pork and let it stand for a few minutes.
Earlier in the day I made coleslaw with cabbage and carrots, along with some diced fresh pineapple to complement the barbecue sauce. It rested in the refrigerator all day, so it was quite tasty by dinnertime.
I served the pulled pork over open-face hamburger rolls with a generous heap of coleslaw on top of each side.
"I must say," this came out GREAT!
We dined al fresco on the balcony, enjoying the cool summer evening and the lovely vistas around us in the neighborhood.

This looks delicious but I was wondering what was in your glass! Lemon tea?

The drink was just plain ol' unsweetened iced tea with a couple of lime slices. I don't like my tea sweet (despite my genteel southern heritage hahaha) and I certainly don't like it "Long Island" style.

Iced Tea

Is good any way you fix it, but I like it REALLY sweet...Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC has THE BEST tea on earth...Donald thinks its too sweet, but I love it.Lime would be good in it too.

Ken, you've

mentioned Bridges before, no? I love good BBQ also, but I use Splenda for sweetener in my iced tea.
Stay high and dry if Matthew pounds North Carolina Ken. You might at least get the rains.
Long Island ice tea has no tea in it. It's seven different liquors and booze.
