Pork Butt Preparation and Procedure;
There are many ways to do cook pork butt, so you may use your favorite, but this is an easy preparation.
Rinse the pork butt and completely pat dry. Mix 4 tablespoons of the rub with 2 cups of water and cup of cider vinegar and set aside. Place the pork butt fat cap up in a lightly greased oven roaster and rub the pork butt all over with spicy brown sugar rub making sure to completely coat it. Place it in the refrigerator and allow it to rest for 1 hour.
Remove from the refrigerator and pour the water, spice, and vinegar mixture over it.
Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or until the fat cap browns up and begins to crust. Remove pan from oven and cover with foil to seal. Reduce heat to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and continue to cook for 2-4 hours or until it reaches and internal temperature of 200 degrees F.
Remove from oven and leave covered and allow it to rest for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and pull the meat apart and from the bone making sure to mix in all of the pan drippings and spices. Add you favorite barbecue sauce if you wish, but its not necessary.
In a medium size bowl mix the ground chuck, and pork sausage. Divide into four individual balls and form into patties. Season with a little salt and pepper.
Super Bowl Slaw Preparation;
Mix the cabbage with 2 cups (or more for extra creamy) of the Super Bowl Sauce and chill thoroughly.
The Super Bowl Spectacular Preparation and Presentation!
Heat a griddle over medium high heat. Toast the buns with butter until lightly browned and set aside. Next cook the bacon until crisp and set aside. Finally place the burgers on the grill and cook until well done. Gently pat the excess grease from them and keep warm for service.
Starting with bottom of the bun, place a slice of pepper-jack cheese and then the burger. Next top the burger with a slice of the smoked cheddar cheese and then pile on the pulled pork. On top of the pork place a nice "nest" of the slaw and finally top with the bacon strips. If desired, squirt some more of the sauce on top and top with top of the bun. Whew!! Open wide and tear it up!!
