NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2011) -

Editor's Note: There are six photos associated with this press release.

After 20 years of perfecting his award-winning pulled pork, barbecue evangelist Rockin' Ronnie Shewchuk has once again teamed up with his Natural Champions partner, Denzel Sandberg, to bring championship-quality Real BBQ to B.C. consumers.

Perfect Pulled Pork is an all-natural product made from B.C.-raised pork shoulder roasts that are seasoned, slow-smoked with hickory wood and finished with Ronnie & Denzel's Natural Champions BBQ Sauce. It's a smoky, spicy, tangy, juicy explosion of barbecue flavour with an unbeatable pedigree. Ronnie's pulled pork has won many blue ribbons in barbecue contests, and Denzel has been producing award-winning hot sauces for years. Ronnie and Denzel first teamed up in 2008 to create their Natural Champions line of all-natural barbecue sauces, which have also won several international awards.

"Not many people have the patience, knowledge or equipment to make real, slow-smoked Southern-style barbecue at home, and the quality of pulled pork sandwiches in restaurants is hit-and-miss," says Ronnie. "Now you can eat real, championship-quality barbecue any time. All you have to do to enjoy Perfect Pulled Pork is heat it and eat it!"

Perfect Pulled Pork comes frozen in one-pound (454g) packages that can be reheated on a stovetop or in a microwave. Once it's heated, all it takes is some fluffy white buns, coleslaw (see recipe below) and maybe a final drizzle of Natural Champions barbecue sauce to make Perfect Pulled Pork sandwiches. One package makes at least four sandwiches or eight sliders.

Perfect Pulled Pork is available in the Lower Mainland at The Gourmet Warehouse; Edible Canada on Granville Island, Well Seasoned: A Gourmet Food Store in Langley; and in Victoria at The Market on Yates and Tofino Co-op.

Tidewater Coleslaw

From Barbecue Secrets DELUXE! by Ronnie Shewchuk, Whitecap Books

Makes 8–10 servings

This pungent, high-sugar slaw is best as a condiment, piled high on top of a pulled pork sandwich or burger, or on the side of a few slices of barbecued brisket.

1 ½ cups | 375 mL mayonnaise
½ cup | 125 mL white vinegar
1/3 cup | 75 mL white sugar
1 Tbsp | 15 mL toasted cumin seeds (cumin seeds are easy to toast - just toss them in a frying pan over medium heat for a minute, stirring or shaking constantly until the seeds just start to darken in color)
1 small head cabbage, finely shredded
2 carrots, peeled and finely grated

Whisk the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, and cumin together in a bowl. Toss it with the cabbage and carrots and refrigerate it. You can make this slaw a few hours ahead of time. Toss it just before serving to redistribute the dressing.
