Hi, new guy here, seems to be a problem when I try to register, but I will ASAP. Anyway, this may be the oldest trick in the book, but have you guys ever had a smoked potato loaded up with butter, cheese, sour cream, chives, and then a big pile of pulled pork all topped of with your favorite BBQ sauce? I was introduced to them at a hole-in-the-wall BBQ place that had potatos as big a footballs, they fed two people. The place is long gone, but that's how I fell in love with BBQ, Thanks to Steven's books I had the courage to smoke my own Butt (and potatos!) for the first time last weekend and they were out of this world. I've also already learned a few things browsing the forums tonight! Sorry such a long post, I just get excited. :D

Welcome!
We love those long post, especialyl when people share new ideas and really really love em with pics ;)

I havent tried that but that sounds amazing! Of course I love to stuff smoke potatoes with cheese, sourcream, bacon, chives,, etc. but havent tried it with pulled pork but certainly will soon.. just a tip for potatoes you may already use and many people have heard... brush your potatoes skin with Bacon Fat while cookin.. I like it better than butter,,,, better flavour....

Welcome aboard! When I lived in Minneapolis there was a BBQ place that served burgers toped with pullled pork and coleslaw! Really good stuff, then again come to think of it, I think most things toped with pulled pork would good. :oops:

Hey Andy - I'm still in Minneapolis. Where can I find one of those pork topped burgers?

I have had this plate at several places here in Alabama. Boy it is great. I have not made it myself yet but I have a feeling that it is not too far away. :D

That does sound good, may have to make some for my wife and I. Unfortunately, I live in Idaho, so we can't get the good potatoes, they ship them ALL out of state. *sigh* We get these little ones, that are still good, but not like the big Idaho russets you see elsewhere.

Hey Andy - went to Cap's Grille for lunch today and got that Cajun burger. Half pound with cajun spices, topped with pulled pork and melted pepper jack. What a fantastic burger!

Thanks for the tip!

Glad you like it, I used to live near there so we went there for breakfast also. They have a really good omlette toped with house made andouille sausage (or is it chorizo?) gravy. Its a milk gravy they use on biscuits. They actually have lot of good stuff for breakfast there.
