Notes

I smoke a 6-10 lb Boston Butt ahead of time slicing off some for a diner and then pulling the rest for pulled pork sandwiches and of course BBQ Lasagna. If you’re accustomed to pulled pork you are ahead of the game or there are many pulled pork recipes online. Too much work? There are ready made pork alternatives in most grocery stores. Same for BBQ sauce there are good recipes on the web or use your favorite store bought brand. I guess I use about 2 lbs of pork in the Lasagna. Mix sauce with pulled pork in a sauce pan and bring it to a slow simmer so it will spread easily.
