Recipe Directions for Eastern North Carolina Bar-B-Q

Using an icepick, poke holes through the meat as deep as possible, using a rough 1"-2" grid pattern as a guide. Roast all day in a 350 degree oven, until it falls apart to the touch. Chop large chunks of the cooked meat on a board with a cleaver or other large knife, until your preferred texture of sized pieces is achieved. Sprinkle sauce liberally. Finish cooking by warming chopped meat in a cast-iron skillet on low heat for 10-15 minutes.
