A delicious dry rub gives this melt in your mouth pork great flavour. The slaw, homemade barbecue sauce and easy to eat lettuce cups make this a new favourite.& #8232 ;

I used free range pork for extra flavour and serve with a side of crunchy crackling and rice. This is a great meal served on a platter at parties as the lettuce cups make it easy to pick up and eat. The results and empty platter speak for themselves!
