Pulled Pork and Watermelon BBQ Sauce

Pulled pork is a staple in the summertime grilling months. Adding some watermelon bbq sauce to this dish will add a new take on an old favorite!

  • 1 4 to 5 pound pork butt
  • 24 ounces dark beer
  • 2 cups bbq sauce
  • 2 cups minced seedless watermelon

Pressure cook or slow cook the pork butt in the beer until the meat is pull-apart tender (in a covered roaster all night in a 275 degree oven, or under pressure about 45-50 minutes or according to manufacturer's directions). Cool, trim and discard the fat from the meat. Chop the meat and re-heat. Warm the barbecue sauce and just before serving, stir in the watermelon.


Makes 8-12 servings.
