DID YOU KNOW...
Pulled pork has always been especially popular in the Southern U.S. but with a taste this great, it's no surprise that those states couldn't keep this delicious dish all to themselves. Generally, a shoulder cut of the pig, pulled pork gets its easy-to-pull-apart texture from the slow-cooking process of being smoked over wood.
Although you might assume that chicken is the most widely-eaten meat worldwide, it's actually pork that claims this title! (Poultry comes in a close second followed by beef.) Pork is an excellent source of protein. Additionally, it contains many beneficial vitamins and minerals, including Thiamine, Selenium, Zinc, Niacin, Phosphorus, and Vitamins B12 and B6.

Every Friday-Sunday from 8:00 am-11:00 am, the best breakfast at the Lake of the Ozarks comes out of the kitchen at The Barn-B-Que.
