Very few BBQ sauces are available in my local supermarkets - and certainly not those you have quoted Andy. I'd have to get them online and that puts the costs up quite considerably. But there are more appearing on the shelves lately, so I will definitely keep my eye out for those two.

If you can get pork shoulder (I prefer bone-in for extra flavour), I think that would be your best bet for pulled pork. Tougher, fattier meats, that have grisly bits work well when slow cooked. The grisly bits melt and make it easier to pull apart the meat when it's done and add an unctuous mouth feel to the sauce.

I can definitely get bone-in shoulder Taxlady - I want maximum flavour for my lovely pulled pork! (Well hopefully, my lovely pulled pork!) I will give this a go next weekend and report back on the results!

There's no reason you can't make your own. The recipes are straight forward and you get to change them at will to get the flavor you want.

Hope you enjoy!

One of our members, Gravy Queen, is also from UK, and awhile back made pulled pork, having never had it before either. She fell in love with it too! Good luck! There are so many good recipes!

This of course is very true!

I love sweet sauce. And hot sauce and smoky sauce and vinegar based sauce... My favorite is sweet with a hot kicker. I guess it's similar to sweet and sour pork. I like a multi-flavored BBQ sauce.

I just finished prepping some cucumbers for this spicy chinese cucumber salad recipe | use real butter
I'll use some Korean fermented chili paste that I have.

We are very deprived of pulled pork in the UK it seems! Which is daft because we have some great pork meat available. I hope Gravy Queen visits soon - we can compare notes!

From this, I am going to guess you just love sauce!

You know, having read all about your "makin bacon" exploits, I didn't have you pictured "prepping" cucumbers!

Yes I do! I'm pretty open when it comes to BBQ sauces, though there are some real clunkers out there... nothing that can't be doctored up though. Sweet Baby Ray's has a Hickory and Vidalia Onion sauce that is heaven on ribs.

Oh, and I've got some bacon thawing for the stuffed shrooms, too.
Man can't live by cucumbers alone
