Traditional barbequing generally involves cooking the meat in the presence of hot smoke from burning wood. This method uses low heat of no more than about 270 degrees Fahrenheit and requires several hours to cook the meat.
Baking uses an oven that cooks the meat at a moderate temperature using convection. This method usually requires at least one hour to cook individual portions of meat.
Braising is a barbequing method that combines the dry heat of charbroiling with the moist heat of broiling. The cook places the meat in a pot filled with broth and places it on a ribbed surface. The temperature is typically changed at various points in this process, and usually requires at least two hours to cook the meat.
Cooks in the United States often use the term "barbeque" to describe the process of grilling meat over direct, dry heat in an outdoor setting. It typically uses temperatures in excess of 500 degrees Fahrenheit, which cooks the meat within a few minutes. A cook can grill meat with a variety of heat sources, including charcoal, gas, wood and electricity.
BBQ Sauces for Pork
Barbecue sauce for pork can vary greatly by region, cooking method and cut of meat, especially in the United States. It is usually added after the meat is already cooked, and the consistency of BBQ sauce may range from watery to very thick. BBQ sauce typically has a base of vinegar and tomato paste with smoke flavoring, although the spices and sweeteners are specific to each type of sauce for barbecue.
East Carolina sauce primarily contains vinegar, black peppers and chilies. This barbecue sauce is often used to baste the meat while it is cooking and as a dipping sauce after the meat is served. Western Carolina sauce adds tomato paste, tomato sauce or ketchup to the ingredients in East Carolina sauce. Many BBQ fans consider Western Carolina sauce to be the best barbeque sauce for dipping. Kansas City sauce is a close relative to Western Carolina sauce, but is thicker and sweeter. Most people in the United States use Kansas City sauce as the best BBQ sauce overall. The best barbecue sauce for Texas-style barbeque uses heavier seasoning with chilies and more black pepper. It also contains much less tomato and sugar than other types of barbecue sauce.
Pulled Pork Barbecue Sauce
Pulled pork is a common method of barbequing pork. It typically uses the shoulder, but it may also use mixed cuts of pork. Pulled pork BBQ is typically cooked with low heat for a long period using a smoking method. The meat becomes very tender, which the cook may pull away from the bone. This gives the pork a shredded appearance. Pulled pork BBQ is common throughout the world, although the specific cooking techniques vary greatly.
Many cuts of meat and pulled pork sauces are used in the United States. Barbequers in Tennessee typically make pulled pork from the shoulder and serve the meat with a pulled pork finishing sauce with a tomato base. North Carolina barbequers are known for making pulled pork from the whole hog and serving the meat with a thin sauce for pulled pork that primarily contains vinegar. They may also serve this meat with no pulled pork sauce at all. Other regions use sauces for pulled pork that are the same as for other types of barbequed meat in that region.
Fortun Foods BBQ Sauce is the perfect sauce for pork, sacue for pork chops, or sauce for pulled pork. Quick, simple and easy to use, our Barbecue sauce is the best bbq sauce you can choose for your pork selection.

Boneless Pork Loin BBQ Recipe
Place a large pan on medium-high heat and season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper. Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into the pan once it is hot and add the pork chops. Cook the pork chops for at least 3 ½ minutes on each side, ensuring both sides are thoroughly seared. Remove the pork chops from the pan and place them on a holding plate for no more than five minutes. This will allow the meat to retain its natural juices.
Pour a bag of BBQ sauce into the pan and heat it for no more than two minutes. The sauce should be simmering but not boiling at this point. Place each pork chop on a serving plate and pour ¼ of the sauce over each pork chop. Serve immediately.
The recommended side dishes for these barbequed pork chops are sautéed spinach and butternut squash topped with cinnamon and sugar. The best wines include Grenache, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah.
Sautéed Pork Loin Chops with Santa Fe Verde

Additional ingredients in this sauce include olive oil, garlic, sea salt, cilantro and other spices. This is one of the best sauces for pork chops and other meats like baked chicken and seafood. It is also an excellent way of adding spice to dishes such as eggs, potatoes and rice.
This recipe for sautéed pork loin chops uses Santa Fe Verde sauce and requires four pork chops weighing about six ounces each. Heat a sauté pan with medium-high heat. Season both sides of the chops to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil to the pan once it is hot. Place the chops in the pan for about four minutes and turn them over for another four minutes, ensuring they are cooked all the way through.
Remove the chops from the pan and place them on a holding plate, allowing them to cool for two to three minutes. Pour the Santa Fe Verde sauce into the pan while it is still hot and allow it to simmer. This should require no more than two minutes, and you should not allow the sauce to come to a boil.
