Brad Orrison and Brooke Lewis, the brother-sister team behind The Shed Barbecue and Blues Joint in Mississippi, know their stuff: Brad's Pulled Pork Sandwich won the Live! With Regis and Kelly Ultimate Hometown Grill-Off earlier this year. Here, they share their top tips.
Brad Orrison and his sister Brooke Lewis love great barbecue and great blues. In 2001 they built The Shed Barbecue and Blues Joint in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, on the coast about 90 miles east of New Orleans. On the following slides, they'll explain some of the secrets to creating their award-winning barbecue and share their dad's simple, but delicious, recipe for coleslaw.
The key to great barbecue is to start with a flavorful homemade rub and heap it on "Southern-style," says Brad. "That means cover every inch, then let it sit for an hour and a half."
The wood used for smoking should contribute a flavor that blends with the rub, the pork, and the sauce. "We use Mississippi-grown pecan," he says. If pecan chips aren't available, try hickory.
Maintaining an even temperature is one of Brad's keys to tender pork shoulder. He keeps his smoker at about 225 degrees F. While he uses a commercial smoker, he's adapted his recipe for charcoal and gas grills.
At The Shed, crisp, creamy coleslaw rounds out the meal. Like many of the recipes at The Shed, the coleslaw was handed down from a family member. "The coleslaw is my dad's," says Brooke. "It's a sweeter style you find at Southern barbecue places. It's true comfort food."
Sweetness is only part of the flavor equation in the coleslaw. "When you use a lot of sugar, black pepper balances it out," says Brooke. "They work well together on your palate,"
