C3TV: Dutch Oven R&R Pulled Pork

Posted by Caveman Cooking on December 5, 2011

Here it is! The world premier of our new online video cooking series!! Please be sure to leave your comments, as we strive to improve the show with each and every episode. Also, be sure to view all the way through the credits for some added “bonus footage”. 😉

Being a Caveman and all, I love to put meat on the grill or in the smoker. That said, I must challenge the purists who insist that good Pulled Pork has to be cooked via one of those methods. This recipe will prove that this dish doesn’t always have to be made in the great outdoors.

    Love the video! Very entertaining and informative. I was wondering if you could rate how hot/spicy this recipe is, what with all the chili powder, etc? Also, could this recipe be done in a crockpot? Thanks!

    • Thank you, Rochelle! Chili powder, per se, isn’t as spicy as it is flavorful. The heat it generates is very mild. Any real kick would come from the red crushed chili peppers and the cayenne pepper, and you could easily modify the “temperature” of this dish by increasing or decreasing the amounts you add to the sauce and the rub. That said, the Cavekids are not big fans of spiciness at this stage of their evolution (Me??? I LOVE it!). So, I tend to keep things on the mild side for their sake … and they just can’t get enough of this dish, made as depicted!
      As for the crockpot, it COULD be made in a slow cooker. But, you don’t get that nice bark on the outside of the meat like you do in the Dutch Oven. I highly recommend the method we shared here.

    So what makes you a caveman, Mark? Are you just riding on the caveman commercials or do you have real caveman credentials? How many critters have you shot? How many raw, warm livers have you eaten from your kill?

    Seriously, you need real credentials when you’re talking to a Rocky Mountain man or the real caveman I’m sending to your site.

    Good show! 🙂

    • Hi, Steve! Glad you liked the show!!
      As for the “Caveman” moniker, those commercials have been taking that from me! I was given that nickname by a bunch of not-so-well-meaning guys 35 years ago when I moved to a new neighborhood. The name stuck and, eventually, I came to embrace it. Even came up with “The Caveman” dance at some school dances that everyone ended up doing. 😉
      I’m more of a fisherman than a hunter. And, while I haven’t experienced the warm liver, I have eaten a still-beating Tuna’s heart, as well as fresh Yellowtail “sashimi”, while the fish was still flopping around on the deck … does that count??? If you’d like, you can check out my fishing website, the Unemployed Fishing Club, to see my on-the-water credentials.

    Great job, Mark. While I prefer my butt…errrrrr…..shoulder smoked, I like the sauce recipe. The video was funny and very well produced and I KNOW how hard that is to do. The production tasks are a complete pain in the rear.

    • Thanks, Chris! Of course, the traditional way is often the preferred way. But (again, no pun intended), if you give this a go sometime, you just might find that great pulled pork doesn’t necessarily come off of a grill or out of a smoker.
      As for the show production, while it does have it’s challenges, it is a total blast to do. And, as I am finding, it is a learning process. For instance, we should have the sound quality and subject lighting making some major leaps in future shows. I’m hoping that we can, somehow, make each episode better than the previous one!

    Very fun video with what looks to be great tasting pulled pork. I will give the recipe a try and let you know the results. The pan looked pretty soiled, did my cousin do the cleaning?

    Watching that made my day…and I don’t even eat meat! I do like the sound of boston butt though but that is a different story.
    You pulled Socks and entertained like only you can. Plus if I am not mistaken, in the beginning of the video..”Now thats’s a fire!”

    Hi Mark,
    I made the pulled pork and the R & R sauce.
    My family loved the pulled pork without the R & R sauce (they’re not sauce eaters)!!! They wouldn’t stop eating it. YUMMY!!!
    Thank you again (from Johnny, Maddie & Morgan)!
    They’re begging for more!!
