WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

Ropas Viejas

Ropa vieja is beef cooked until it is tender enough to shred. The name actually translates as "old clothes" or "rags" - beef that is falling apart like worn clothes. This dish can be found as a staple in many countries in South and Central America. It's very economical because it uses a tough, inexpensive piece of meat.

Why do I begin a post with the definition of Ropa Vieja? Because that's what many people at my daughter's school's Halloween dance thought my pulled pork was. Until they tasted it. I must say myself, it came out great. It was more of a success with the adults then the children, with a few of them telling me that they ate 3 or 4 sandwiches of it. It just goes to show, Brooklyn people don't know barbeque. I must teach. I must inform. After all I took an oath as a certified barbeque judge to promote barbeque!

I'm sorry I didn't get any pictures. My digital camera is acting up lately, but Christmas is coming. Maybe Santa will be generous.
