Barbecue Bites: Pulled Pork Sandwich

We do a lot of cool things with Jay D's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce, but truly, our favorite thing to pair the sauce with is pork. The sweetness of the cane syrup and brown sugar along with the heat of Louisiana seasonings in the sauce go perfectly with many iterations of pork.

In this recipe by Chef Eusebio Gongora, we put a Louisiana spin on a classic sandwich using ingredients from Indie Plate. Buckle up, it's going to get messy. For more tasty recipes featuring local ingredients, check out HugJayD.com.


Pulled Pork



1 Pork Butt, bone in
3 tbsp Jay D’s Sweet & Spicy BBQ Rub (Red Stick Spice Co.)
½ lb Carrots
1 lb yellow onion
10 garlic cloves, peeled
1 cup Pork Stock, or any meat stock
1 cup Jay D’s BBQ Sauce
1 bottle Swamp Pop File Root Beer


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place a Dutch oven on the stove top and set to medium high heat. Season all sides of the pork butt with the BBQ Rub. Sear all sides of the pork for 2-3 minutes on each side. Place all other ingredients into the pot and allow it to come to a simmer. Cover and place into the oven to cook for 3 hours until the meat is tender and the bone comes out clean. Remove the pork from the pot and shred.
