Burnett B-que


We are having Vacation Bible School at church this week so that doesn't leave alot of time in the kitchen. I knew I needed something easy and something that would require minimal effort. I had the perfect "go to" easy meal....
Burnett B-que!

(Please scroll down, to the end of the post, to see some pictures of my Vacation Bible School room.) Praying that children's lives will forever be changed for the Glory of God!!

Burnett B-que is an easy crock pot meal. No fuss. It is a simple recipe but don't be fooled... it is something to cheer about. I challenge you to invite some folks to the house for dinner and prepare this b-que for them.

I feel confident that before they get up from the table, they will be asking you for your recipe. So...with a smile on your face and a little flutter in your heart, you can share your masterpiece with them.

This meal is easy peasy. (that's how my kids would describe it) It calls for 3 ingredients.

One stop..one pot..meal!! Put your Boston butt in your crock pot and pour 1-2 cans of Coke over it. The coke just sits in the bottom of the crock pot. If you use a 5 lb. Boston butt, use 2 cans of Coke. If you use a smaller Boston butt, you will use less Coke. Just use your best judgement. This is a flexible step.

Put crock pot on low. Cook for 8-10 hours. Drain the juices. The white stuff in the photo is excess fat. (please don't get grossed out) Just take a fork, rake it off, and throw it out.

The meat will fall off the bone and it will shred sooo easily. We actually chunk it up, instead of shred it.

Dump meat back into crock pot.

Pour on the b-que sauce. Mix gently. You don't want to stir, stir, and stir...it will get mushy. Turn the crock pot back on low and let it sit for about 15 minutes; just until warm. You can add more b-que sauce if needed. If you like your b-que saucy..then by all means, add more. We do! (smile)

Serve with 40 minute hamburger buns or serve over baked potatoes.

If you have any leftovers, reheat on 50% power in microwave. Put a damp paper towel on the top. You want to keep it moist. Your not trying to re-cook it. You just want to re-heat it. Leftover b-que is delicious.

Burnett B-que

Recipe by Kristi's Dishes

1 Boston butt/ frozen (we use at least 5 lb.)
1-2 cans of Coke (or Pepsi) do not use diet
1-2 bottles of Kraft Honey Barbecue sauce (You can use any b-que sauce that you want..but, I would highly recommend Kraft Honey. Feel free to use homemade b-que sauce too)

Put your Boston butt in your crock pot. Pour 1-2 cans of Coke over it and turn your crock pot on low. Cook for 8-10 hours. Use a strainer to drain juice off meat. Shred meat. Put meat back into crock pot. Add b-que sauce. Gently fold the b-que sauce into the meat mixture. If you try to stir it..it will turn mushy. Turn your crock pot back on low for approximately 15 minutes; just to warm it up. Serve with hamburger buns or baked potatoes.

Easy dishes....Kristi

Our theme this year for Vacation Bible School is "The Big Apple."
I have the Central Park Zoo in New York City.

It is my prayer.. the children will invite Jesus into their hearts. It is my prayer that they will grow closer to HIM more and more everyday.

Thank you Allison, Andee, and all your children...for your servant hood and love for others.
Thank you for helping me with my room. Thank you for your time and devotion. You have blessed me, more than you know.
