2.    Set the oven at 350 degrees F and cook the meat for about 18 hours. When the cooking period of meat is about to come to its end, see if it breaks up easily. In case it does, turn off the oven to remove the meat.

3.     Mix vinegar, crushed red peppers, salt, pepper and lemon juice to prepare North Carolina BBQ sauce or you may buy it readymade from the North Carolina BBQ Society.

4.    Chop the meat into pieces of the desirable size using a large knife. Spread sauce on its top and mix. Garnish with parsley and serve hot with white wine or North Carolina microbrew.
