Here are a few notes about the ‘que:
- Shoulder-Was sloppy tender, scooped out of a slow cooker. This type of mushy ‘que reminds me of the stuff we were served for lunch as kids in Memphis public schools. The sauce was mixed throughout the meat. Standard Memphis ‘que is served with sauce poured over the pork shoulder to layer the flavors and allow the pork to shine, without being masked by the sauce.
- Shoulder-Despite the its shortcomings as barbecue, the meat did have a slight smoke flavor. and I didn’t get the impression that I was just tasting liquid smoke. The meat was smoked, no doubt, since smoke was pouring from a flue sticking right out of the side of the bbq trailer. It seems the slow cooker was just being used to keep the meat warm.
Sauce-As mentioned above, the sauce was mixed throughout the meat, which masks the meat itself. The sauce itself had some sweetness, only slight tanginess and a slight bitter note.
