I really enjoy watching this show. On the episode last night, Guy visited a restaurant called, 'Leonards' where they featured BBQ meats and especially pulled pork.
The owners usually demonstrate how to make their specialties and I ws waiting for him to show what type of rub they put on the pork.
Well, he placed about six whole pork shoulders (butt and picnic including the hock) on the commerical size smoker rack and closed the door. Guy asked where the rub was and the answer was, 'No rub'!!! Shocked the heck out of me. Guy commented that was probably the best pulled pork sandwich he ever had.
The only thing they added to the sandwich was a scoop of coleslaw on top of the pulled pork and then closed the bun.
I use a rub but thought this was interesting.
