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!

Honey-Sweetened, Smoky BBQ Sauce

by Texas Homesteader ~

I like to utilize Planned Leftovers by cooking several roasts using my slow cookers. I often  shred much of the cooked meat to make pulled pork. (tip: there’s a much easier way than using 2 forks to Shred Cooked Pork)
