Good Ol' Southern Barbecue

Some friends of ours told us about this great barbecue sauce that was on sale at Whole Foods this weekend, so yesterday on our walk home from church we stopped by to get some. Matt asked the guy at the meat counter if they had boston butts, and the guy had no idea what he was talking about (is this a southern thing?). His manager told him that he thought it was the same thing as a pork shoulder, so that is what we ended up getting.

This morning I started cooking it at 9am in the crockpot. It smelled SO good cooking all day!

When Matt got home tonight, he poured off the fat and shredded it with two forks.

And then we tried out the barbecue sauce. Notice on the bottle it says "Blazin' Hot". It was awesome! It is definitely hot so you can't use a ton, but it is really good. We made sandwiches with it, and served it with baked macaroni and watermelon.

And for dessert I made a buttermilk pie. Yumm!!

And here is a picture of the little guy today. We try to do "tummy time" with him every day so he can build some strength in his neck muscles. He doesn't like it too much and usually tries to lift his head, which is good for him, but today I guess he was just too pooped and fell right asleep...
