Pecan-Wood Smoked Meat For Pulled Pork Sandwiches

by Texas Homesteader ~

RancherMan keeps our chest freezer filled with wild hog meat. I’ve made many dishes with this lean, mild-tasting wild pork. Many of those recipes are listed below. (Although you could use commercial pork instead)

But recently we were preparing for our annual family reunion. We decided to serve pulled-pork sandwiches with some of this wild-hog meat. But RancherMan wanted to smoke it with pecan wood before shredding it for sandwiches. It turned out Aaaaaaaahhhhh-MAZING!

Delicious Smoked Pork using pecan wood smoke. Delicious. And shredding all that meat can be done in minutes using our shortcut. #TexasHomesteader

Fast Food: Basic Mix-n-Pour BBQ Sauce Recipe

by Texas Homesteader ~

I like to cook a big, honkin’ pork roast & then plan other dinners for later from the leftovers. This Planned Leftovers way of cooking is a budget saver for sure! 

From that leftover pork roast I may shred and whip up Carnitas Tacos one night, being sure to use some of the cooked onions & peppers from that roast.

I’ve also been known to make Pulled Pork Enchiladas. But an even faster remade dish is Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches.

Recently I decided BBQ sandwiches would be perfect for supper. It had been such a busy day, I needed tonight’s supper to be easy!

I often have a spare bottle of BBQ sauce in the pantry for such easy-supper plans. But alas, not this time!

So I decided to try to whip up a basic BBQ sauce using just what I had in my fridge.

Wild Game Recipe: Wild Hog Pork Ribs On The Grill

by Texas Homesteader 

Wild hogs are a problem here in NE Texas, their destruction is far-reaching and often severe.  These destructive creatures sweep across our fields in great quantities & root huge holes in our pastures overnight. This damage not only destroys the pasture grasses we rely on to feed our cattle, but can be damaging to our equipment as well.

But the good news is these wild hogs are just pork – escaped domestic hogs that have re-bred for years in the wild. RancherMan is an accomplished hunter. Since these wild hogs are so plentiful on our homestead it’s very common for us to have an abundance of wild pork in our freezer at any given time.

I’ve written before about some of the many ways I cook this meat such as Pulled Pork Sandwiches & Slow Cooker Pork Roast w/Red Wine, But today I’m writing about that sweet rite of Barbeque-Season passage – Pork Ribs on the grill!

RancherMan is an accomplished hunter and wild pork is plentiful here in NE Texas. Today he invited over dinner guests & grilled up some ribs! #TexasHomesteader
