My dad is one of the friendliest people I know. He’ll talk to any and everyone. He’s a custom home builder and has been able to make a lot of good friends from his business.

- I season the meat with Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. I just love that stuff so much! I find it the perfect blend for the pork butt.
- Top with Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce for a truly yummy Pulled Pork Sandwich!
