This receipe i use turns out very good all the time and even the less expeirenced cook can make this dish. It is very hard to mess up. It can get messy if you do not pay attention to what you are doing. I like to call it -- "BBQ SHREDDED SANDWICHS" First- what you need to do is go to your local grocery store and buy one small bucket of barbeque shredded pork.

Second- you need to buy some potato bread that is the long type (like a hot dog bun) this make the sandwich taste better. You can also use any type of bread you like, but I recommend this bread. This is all you need to get at the store and make sure you freeze it before you go on your trip. If frozen it should last all day in the heat frozen.

NOW ITS TIME TO COOK! All that you need is one big pot and a large cooking spoon. First- get your stoves burning and then get your pot on the stove then open your bucket of shredded pork and por into the pot.

Second- keep cooking untill the pork is warm-hot and then make sure you dont burn it cause this stuff will burn easily on those pans that arent none stick.

Third- get the buns out and serve the food up to everyone and enjoy. This dish is excellent and I made it at one of my scout outings and about everyone in my troop wanted to have some. have fun with it.
