Celebrating Dads with Life Made Delicious #LMDconnector {giveaway}

It's hot outside, let's go ahead and make the most of our short, but sweet Canadian summers! For most Canadians, food is a big part of enjoying our fair weather It's our turn to enjoy our local bounty. But, don't turn on your stove and heat up the house - cook outdoors instead!
As you know my husband is a barbeque enthusiast. In the summer of 2009, we were walking the strip at Sauble Beach, Ontario, after enjoying a fun family day at the beach. We stumbled upon a little barbeque joint and decided to stop there for an early supper, and from that day forward my hubby found a great love and fun hobby. Barbequing! He has spent countless hours on barbeque forums and getting to know others who love to grill, as well as learning their tricks and tips. We enjoy his labour of love immensely!

As Father's Day approaches, I will offer to take him out for a special meal. Though, I know he will turn down the offer. He would much rather stay home and make his own food. One of his favourites is pulled pork. He has prepared it and shared it at potlucks, and even made it for his beavers (for supper) at their camp out, and everyone licks their lips in appreciation.


The perfect Father's Day meal ~ Pulled Pork

First, (if you haven't yet) get to know your local butcher. I am not talking the butcher at your grocery store, go to an abattoir and make them your best friend. Starting with the right cut of meat will make your meal. Once you have your pork shoulder you need to prep your meat, the night before you want to slow cook it. My hubby uses a concoction, which he calls glitter. Glitter is a mix of paprika, salt, pepper, sugar, cayenne, and dry mustard. With the help of his assistant (me) we coat the pork really well the night before and place it in the fridge overnight. The next morning he fires up his charcoal grill and leaves it to cook the day away. Be sure to take it off the grill and let it rest for at least 45 minutes before shredding it. Wrap it in a towel and place it in your cooler. Serve with your favourite fresh rolls, and you have the makings of a perfect summer barbeque.


A great barbeque should be followed with an equally fantastic dessert. As you know, I am a Life Made Delicious connector, and as such, I am enjoying using the Life Made Delicious site as a resource for all kinds of meal ideas. You can too! Visit Life Made Delicious to find easy recipes to aid in your busy schedule. Life Made Delicious has the BBQ recipes you need for your next cookout from start to finish. I found some great starters, as well as desserts for our pulled pork meal.

(I think these brownie and fruit kabobs would be the perfect end to any barbeque meal.)
