Mmm…Pork Butt

brewandq

I may not have the St. Louisian affinity for provel but I have embraced the pork steak.

Though when they’re cooked the way they’re supposed to be, or at least my understanding of it, and they’ve simmered in bbq sauce (and beer) for a while after grilling, they’re just pretty good.

When I cook them up, instead of simmering them and ruining the char, I like to omit that step to let the fat — the great heaping lot of it — get a little burnt and crispy so that the juicy charred hog butt just melts in your mouth.

So I might just be a little excited for the Brew & Q event Schlafly is hosting.
