My husband has dreams of being a pit master. The man can grill a steak with the best of them, and he has helped his friends at a pig roast or two in the past, but smoking meat is an art he is still trying to master. I mean, maybe part of the issue is that he is using a $35 smoker and he has to babysit the thing constantly in order to keep it anywhere near the temperature he wants. That means anytime he wants to smoke a pork butt or brisket, he literally cannot do anything else all day. And somehow, even after spending the entire day tending to his meat, he is never satisfied with the result – too dry, not enough smoke ring, took twice as long to cook as expected, too smoky.
So his master plan towards smoking success is to spend an exorbitantly large amount of money on a smoker that has all kinds of feedback mechanisms to maintain the perfect smoking temperature. This is obviously the best decision for the man who is rarely home for a full day in order to pull off the whole “low and slow” thing, but he insists he is going to pull the trigger and make the investment so that he can hone his skills. I mean, when I make Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork, I can let it cook all day and I don’t even have to be in the house.
Well until the day he masters the smoker, I’ll leave it to the experts to make perfectly smoked, super tender pulled pork to the experts so I can transform it into something else amazing like this…
BBQ Pulled Pork Loaded Sweet Potato Fries might just be my new favorite way to eat barbecue!
And possibly my entire family’s too, because I don’t think there was a morsel of meat or a lick of sauce left in that skillet when we were done with it.
About this BBQ Pulled Pork Loaded Sweet Potato Fries recipe…
- In the recipe I’ll tell you how to make super easy baked sweet potato fries, but you can also use an air fryer. Or if you want an even simpler option, you can always use a bag of frozen sweet potato fries that you’ve prepared according to the package instructions.
- Pile all of those fries in a skillet or on a sheet pan, load them up with pulled pork , drizzle on your favorite barbecue sauce, and top it with plenty of cheese.
- A few minutes in the oven or under the broiler to get turn that cheese into melty perfection and you will be in barbecue heaven.
- But first you need a scoop of cole slaw on top, like my Maple Dijon Apple Cole Slaw, to get the full barbecue experience with some cool crunch to balance out all of that rich and meaty, gooey and cheese pile of deliciousness.
- And it wouldn’t hurt to serve them with a side of Semi-Homemade Baked Beans and maybe even a Skinny Grapefruit Margarita.
