These days you can't go through an entire day without seeing a " Happy National ______ Day!" Social media really explodes when it's food related (how many National Burger Days are there in a year?!).
The folks at Sonny's BBQ reminded me that this upcoming October 12 is the first ever National Pulled Pork Day. Are you ready? It's on a Wednesday, so that middle-of-the-week BBQ cookout is always a nice surprise. Be sure to share your pictures on social media with the hashtag #NationalPulledPorkDay.
If you're a novice BBQ enthusiast, or you're just breaking in a new smoker, smoking pulled pork as the first meat is highly recommended. Compared to brisket and ribs, which are relatively time consuming, smoking pork shoulder is as simple as slapping on some rub or marinade and letting it smoke until ready.
For all the details, check out my post on pulled pork.
