BBQ Spaghetti

BBQ Spaghetti may sound a little strange at first but in Memphis it’s a barbecue staple.

This dish is served as a side or even a main course at BBQ establishments around here, and it’s a great way to put some of your let over pulled pork to good use (There’s not a bad way to use pulled pork!)

This recipe combines a classic spaghetti recipe with a barbecue twist. Instead of using ground beef or Italian sausage in the meat sauce we use pulled pork along with a good dose of BBQ sauce and dry rub.

The flavors meld together to form a unique taste that’s both rich and tangy with just the right amount of sweetness and spice you’d expect in Memphis Q. The whole dish is topped off with even more smoky pulled pork to truly make an epic meal.

  1. Malcom., Reference to your spaghetti sauce. If you had to serve about 30-35 people how would you kick up the recipe to feed that amount of people. What size of pot would I need . I’m thinking that the recipe would be great for a fund fundraiser with our group.
