Mom’s BBQ recipe

This is amazingly good and many will dismiss.  My alterations is that I smoke the beef and pork in a Green Egg.

You may notice on the recipe cards, there is reference to Mango, this must be some odd mixed up reference from southern Indiana and Green Bell Peppers.  There is no Mango in this recipe or any that Mom made, you could not get them in Indiana back then.. Lol.

Cook together 2 lbs of Pork and 2 lbs of Beef.  I assume that this is braised in water, I slow cooked on a smoker, but a grill will work as well at a very low temperature.

Saute 1 cup of chopped Onion, 1 cup of Green Pepper, and Celery.  I do this in Butter.  Add this to the sauce.

Take the meat when done and and falling apart, into larger pot, if not done cook in some water.  

Start the sauce, which is;
1 can of Campbells Tomato soup.  ( yes really )
1/2 cup Ketchup
2/3 cup sweet pickle relish
Dash of Paprika
2 T of Worcestershire Sauce
2 T of Vinegar ( apple )
1 t of Chili Powder
1 t of red chili flakes if you like.
1/4 cup of sugar, ( not sure this is really necessary, adds too much sweetness. )
Then add the Green Pepper, Onion, and Celery.

I took the meat, retaining the broth from any braising efforts and maybe beef broth if you like, and I chopped up the meat so it was more chunked than like pulled pork.

Use that broth to get the right level of moisture and consistency, in some ways it is more like a sloppy joe, but man it is tangy and good.

Goes great on a bun.
