Directions

For the rub: Mix together the salt, sugar, Cajun spice, cumin, garlic, onion powder and paprika in a large bowl. Set aside.

For the pork butt: Soak 2 handfuls each of the hickory, cherry and apple wood chips in separate bowls for at least 5 hours. Pat dry and mix together. Take a large piece of foil and place the wood chip mixture on the foil. Fold the foil over to double and triple wrap the chips. Poke small holes in the foil and set aside.

Pat the pork dry. Rub with the spice mixture and set aside.

Prepare a grill or smoker with charcoal until the coals are ash white. Distribute the coals evenly and place the foil packet of woodchips on the coals. Place the pork on the grill and cook low and slow until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 190 degrees F, about 6 hours. Make sure you maintain a cooking temperature of 200 degrees F.

Remove the pork from the grill or smoker and allow it to rest for a few minutes. Once it is cool enough to touch, pull the bone out of the center. Pull the pork into bite size pieces, using two forks, and place in a large pot. Add the vinegar and hot sauce and mix well. Place on low heat until all the flavors penetrate the meat, about 10 minutes.

Divide the pork among the rolls and top with some pickles, coleslaw, BBQ sauce and fried onions, if using.

    I went to Ron's Roadside after watching him on TV, I have been waiting for such a long time, and may I say it was more than worth the wait! I have been so busy, but there is no excuse for not getting to this amazing place sooner! My experience was everything I saw on the show, and more! Not only was the food divine, but all the workers make you feel at home, and are so kind to you no matter how busy they are! Sometimes the lines are long, so get there before they run out! I got there just in time to see how they cook the meat as well, and he put in the charcoal first to heat it up, then the apple and cherry hickory wood, which you could for sure taste in the amazing, tender meat!

    After seeing Ron's on TV we just had to go....BAD IDEA. We went for lunch...they were cleaning the dinning room floor with bleach. All you could smell was bleach. We got 1/2 BBQ chicken and 1/2 slab of ribs..NO WAY were they cooked on a grill. I cook better BBQ at my home. Also when we were there ,about 12;30, they were just then putting charcoal in the BBQ pit NOT WOOD as was said on TV. Only way they could call it BBQ was all,and a LOT,of sauce that was on it. Could not even give this a one star it was that bad Oh Yes they didn't even have pulled pork...they were out...at 12:30...lunch time???
