Wild Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Now, you need to know that the sandwiches are not wild, the pork is. The pork is not pulled in a wild way, either. Unless you particularly feel like it. Of course, you probably could make these from grocery store pork, but why would you? Wild pork has all the flavor, a little less fat, none of the added antibiotics, hormones, or artificial colors. The thrill of eating meat that you’ve harvested yourself can’t be beat.
This recipe is very easy to prepare for a camping trip (or at home) because the meat is roasted up ahead of time. Basically, you just have to pack
1 to 1 1/2 pounds roasted pork*
about 1/2 cup beef or pork stock as needed
1 cup of bar-b-que sauce of choice (I used Skipkenny Whiskey BBQ Sauce) plus more for pouring
about 2 tbsp. Butter

Shred slow roasted meat into a skillet. Add a small amount of stock and enough Bar-B-Que sauce to coat. I used Skipkenny Whiskey BBQ Sauce.
I discovered this amazing sauce at the Farmers’ Market in San Antonio. The company is actually based out of New Braunfels, TX. You can reach Skipkenny BBQ at 830-214-5722 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The flavor of the sauce that I purchased really pops and enhances the the flavor of the meat. It got thumbs up from every member of my deerslayer family. There are so many BBQ sauces on the market, it’s not often that one really stands out. This one, however, is my new favorite! Since I don’t live in New Braunfels, I’ll be ordering a case to fill my all my BBQ needs.
Allow the liquid to reduce slightly. Meanwhile, liberally butter a cast iron griddle and toast the hamburger buns.
Serve up this super easy meal with hamburger dills and onion slices. Offer potato salad and beans as a side. You’ll be held in high esteem by your camping family.
