I love pulled pork. Not big on sweet though. So vinegar and Jack Daniels is the marinade?
I have some semi-cheap Irish whiskey I use to spike Irish Coffee, would that work or do I really need a sour mash? Is apple cider vinegar ok?
Definitely going to make that at some point.
If you don't want it to be as sweet, you can use something else like BBQ sauce or ketchup and brown sugar. If you just left the root beer out it'll be too sour for sure. I basically mashed up a Jack Daniels pulled pork recipe with a root beer pulled pork recipe, and you can use other whiskey even bourbon*. Here's a link to a JD pulled pork recipe
. I basically drop all the non-dry ingredients add ~3/4 of a can of root beer per pork shoulder._____
*Note I rarely drink so I know little about alcohol and cooking with it
the pork sounds awesome but those whiskey float things sound heinous
It just tastes like a root beer float. I've got a huge sweet tooth and I don't drink very much (basically at BBQs and when cottaging/camping) so when I do I'm just looking for something sweet. On the rare occasion I'm in a pub it's gin and tonic. I'm very boring.
