Down Home with the Neelys

I really like the Neelys and their twist to common dishes. I was watching a recent episode about pulled pork. They said to cook their "pulled pork" to 165 degrees?? They have a BBQ Resturant in Memphis and i know they can cook, BUT I cant even get the bone in a Boston Butt to pull out til @ 190 degrees ish. Was this a typo in their script??

I agree. 165 F is not pulled pork. It's well done pork roast.

I have encountered mistakes like this in shows on a regular basis. Sometimes hosts just babble to fill the air while they are doing something.

Lots of references to this online, and the "experts" say that pulled pork done low and slow can be put aside as it will continue cooking, and that it's easier to 'pull' the pork at 180F but to never exceed 190F.

i usually turn the channel when the neely's come on. why? all the silly banter filled with sexual overtones. the huggy, kissy, wiggling , etc. some of the dishes that they cook, (watched til got sick of by play) seem to be good. some are far out using dishes i grew up on near memphis. lots of people like the show. not me

This is my issue with the show as well. I can't watch it.

Same here. I find them having some good ideas but all the horse play makes me gag.

That makes it unanimous! I can't watch them either for all the reasons already stated. So if we're a good sample, then who the hell is watching them!

I agree, there is too much lolly gagging around. I always wonder how much of the recipes used in their show and others like theirs are actually their own.

I haven't actually watched a whole show of the Neelys but I've seen snipets here and there and I think they're adorable. And I am shallow enough to even enjoy the sexual overtones and "huggy kissy wiggling" .

The media likes variety with shock value (albeit mild in this case). Are there any other cooking shows that are a husband and wife team? I rest my case.

And it's refreshing to see a couple that get's along well enough in the entertainment world that can last through a whole show...tsk tsk

Ya'll must be gagging over my avatar...hehe

I wonder that about many of the tv cooks. It isn't the usual thing to see recipes that are entirely new - most are changes here and there to achieve a different dish. I've heard Paula say something about when she was "formulating" a recipe - only to know that it has been around for ages only she adds more butter, mayo or cream cheese. It is refreshing when I do see someone with a very new dish.
