St. John’s Pork Wars II, Pitmaster Strikes Back down at the Quidi Vidi Brewery on November 17 was a hit!

it sold out in record time, and everyone who got a ticket left feeling full and happy.  the pulled pork sandwiches were spectacular, and each of the three barbecue aficionados – Stephen Quinton of Q’s Barbeque Catering, BBQ enthusiast Mike Rose, and Jonathan Richler, Sandwich enthusiast – brought their own special tastes. 

Mike – Hickory and apple wood smoked pulled pork with a side of smoky Boston-style baked beans and smoked McIntosh apples with a maple syrup reduction

Steve – Asian pulled pork with sesame fried cabbage and bakeapple & curry yoghurt served on top of a choux pastry with a side of pork infused Mac and cheese, & potato chips

Jonathan – North Carolina pulled pork; smoked apple, cabbage and root vegetable slaw and German potato salad with corn bread croutons

all around the eating emcee Brad Stone kept things moving, and there was a 50/50 on the go, a card game for gorgeous artwork by Graham Blair, and a live auction for two nights in Trinity.  the whole works was sponsored by Quidi VIdi Brewing Company.

it was a success!  and more than $5000 was raised.
