Pulled Pork BBQ

Well, here is the second barbecue
recipe within two weeks. 
Summer must be on my mind.

I was trying to think of a way to
do pulled pork barbecue
 within an hour and found
a recipe online that said you
can cook it on your stove top.

Sometimes when I cook it's good,
but not quite what I had imagined.
Tonight was a night the 
imagination turned out right. 

 I bought a 2.5 lb. pork tenderloin and cut it into 
smaller pieces so it would fit in my kettle.
Mix together rub and sprinkle on all sides.

 Add a quarter inch of olive oil to your kettle and
sear all sides of the pork until browned.
 Then drain oil off of the pork and add...

Beer. Yes, it's beer. Beer is a wonderful way to tenderize meats. 
 Beer tenderizes by penetrating and breaking down fatty and non-fat tissues. 
The alcohol burns off during the cooking process, yielding a flavorful 
taste and rich color to any meat.

 Pour the beer over your pork, at first it will be foamy.
Leave your burner on medium and cover your kettle.
Simmer for 1 hour.

This is what you will find after an hour.
Remove pork from skillet and start...

 ... pulling the pork apart with forks.
Add to your simmering barbecue sauce.

Let simmer a few minutes.

Spoon on a bun and top with some slaw.

It's bound to make someone happy.
