North Carolina Barbeque Recipe
2 pork picnic shoulder roasts
6 lb each,
1 bone in, rind removed
12 cloves garlic -- peeled
3 cup cider vinegar
1 mopping sauce:
1 the 12 garlic cloves that
1 cooked with the
1 tsp coarse (kosher) salt
1/4 cup reserved pork-simmering
3/4 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cayenne
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 mixing sauce:
1 1/2 cup reserved mopping sauce
1/4 cup reserved pork-simmering
1/3 cup smoky-flavored barbecue
1 sauce (not
1 too sweet)
1 hot-pepper sauce for
1 seasoning at
Place the roasts, the garlic, and the 3 cups of vinegar in a very
large deep stockpot or flameproof casserole. (If necessary, divide
the roasts, garlic, and vinegar evenly between 2 smaller pots.) Add
water to cover by at least 2 inches and bring to a boil over high
heat. Reduce the heat, partially cover, and simmer for 2-1/2 hours,
adding boiling water as needed to keep the meat covered. Remove the
roasts from the pot, reserving the cooked garlic cloves and 1/2 cup
of the pork-simmering liquid. Place the roasts on a rack in a large
roasting pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Meanwhile, prepare the Mopping Sauce. In a large bowl, mash the
cooked garlic to a paste with the salt. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved
pork-simmering liquid, the sugar, cayenne, pepper and 3-1/2 cups of
vinegar and mix well. Remove 1-1/2 cups of the Mopping Sauce and set
it aside to be used later in the Mixing Sauce. Use the remaining
Mopping Sauce to baste the pork as it roasts. With a clean new
dishmop or paintbrush, baste the roasts with Mopping Sauce and place
them in a 350 degree oven. Immediately reduce the heat to 300
degrees. Cook for 2 hours, basting every 15 minutes and turning once
or twice. Use all of the Mopping Sauce (but none of the reserved
Mopping Sauce). Remove the pork from the oven and transfer to a large
chopping board. Spoon or pour all fat out of the roasting pan and
set the pan aside. Do not wash it. The pork roasts should be a
little crusty on the outside and very tender and moist inside.
Discard the bones and remove any fat. With a heavy large knife,
chop/shred the lean pork fairly fine. Transfer to a large bowl and
cover loosely to keep warm and moist.
Proceed immediately to make the Mixing Sauce. Place the empty,
unwashed roasting pan over very low heat and add 1/2 cup of the
reserved Mopping Sauce. Scrape the pan to loosen caramelized juices
and browned bits, stirring quickly and constantly so none of the
flavorful liquid evaporates. Pour every last drop of this "essence of
barbecue" back into the remaining reserved Mopping Sauce. Add the
1/4 cup of reserved pork-simmering liquid. Stir in the smoky-flavored
barbecue sauce and season with salt to taste. This Mixing Sauce will
mellow considerably as the barbecue "ripens." Add half the Mixing
Sauce to the chopped pork and mix well. Gradually blend in the
remaining Mixing Sauce. Let cool, cover tightly, and refrigerate for
at least 12 hours to let the flavor develop. (Chopped barbecue can be
prepared in advance and refrigerated for up to 2 days, or frozen for
up to 2 months.) Let return to room temperature before reheating,
covered, in a microwave oven or 300 degree conventional oven. Adjust
the seasonings as necessary and serve hot. Cole slaw is traditional
with chopped barbecue, and hot-pepper sauce is a must.

Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soy baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In many cases, you may adapt your best loved recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Don't miss meals
Most low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires great care in managing your energy levels, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the deep red colour of a good number of natural foods.
Usefully, unlike numerous vitamins, lycopene is not damaged during the cooking process, but is observably made more effective by going through the cooking process.
Its most valuable advantage is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be of use in the battle to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is connected with aging of the skin. It's also thought by many researchers to prevent the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
