BBQ Pork

Preheat oven to 325ºF.

Make a dry rub: In a small bowl, combine salt, black pepper, dark brown sugar, paprika and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle rub all over pork roast, pressing into pork. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, apple juice, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder; pour into large Dutch oven. Place pork shoulder in Dutch oven and cover tightly with aluminum foil, then lid. Roast 4 hours, or until pork is fork-tender and shreds easily, brushing roast with cooking liquid every hour.

Remove from oven and let stand until cool enough to handle. Shred pork with fork or tongs into bite-size pieces; mix in TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce.


In a large bowl, combine cabbage, carrots, red onions, green onions and chile pepper. In another bowl, stir together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce and sugar.

Pour dressing over cabbage mixture and toss gently to mix. Season with celery seed, salt and black pepper. Chill 2 hours in refrigerator before serving.

Onion Straws

In a medium saucepot, heat oil to 350ºF.

In a medium bowl, whisk egg and milk. In another medium bowl, mix flour, cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, salt and ground pepper.

Cut onion in half and slice into 1-inch-thick half rings; separate into short straw-like pieces. Add onions to milk mixture to soak. Once oil is at temperature, remove onions from milk mixture, shake off excess and dredge 4 or 5 pieces at a time in flour mixture. Add to pot and fry until golden brown; transfer to paper towels to drain.
