Stonewall Kitchen Pulled Pork Simmering Sauce — A simple Southern classic North Carolinians originally used the wood from their backyards for smoking and barbecuing pork and each cook had their own special sauce. Eventually, the flavor and aroma of the best barbecue attracted neighbors and the first roadside barbecue joints were born. This sauce, slowly simmered with a pork shoulder, makes the best pulled pork sandwich you’ll find north of Raleigh! Just pour the jar over four pounds of boneless pork shoulder, roast at 350°F for 2-1/2 to 3 hours (for food safety, pork should reach a minimum internal temperature of 145°F as measured by a food thermometer), pull apart and serve on our Honey Butter Buns, made from scratch in our Bakery! Gluten free (not the Honey Butter Buns); serves 6 to 8.
