  • 2 cans of pork (12oz each)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Cooking Instructions

  2. In a large bowl, mix the pork with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, black pepper, and salt.
  3. Get your grill or grilling pan ready and preheat it to medium-high heat. Make sure it’s hot, not the “I might make it” hot!

  5. Brush the pork generously with BBQ sauce and sprinkle with brown sugar. Trust me, your inner sugar monster will thank you!
  6. Grill for an additional 10 minutes until the sauce caramelizes and forms a sticky, mouthwatering coat.
  7. Remove the pork from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Yes, even BBQ needs a break sometimes.
  8. Serve and watch as everyone digs in like it’s the last BBQ on Earth.


  • Alternative Ingredients: Try using canned chicken if pork isn’t your jam.
  • Garnishing: Top with fresh chopped cilantro or green onions for a burst of color and flavor.
  • Cooking Tips: Keep a close eye on the grill. BBQ sauce can quickly turn from caramelized to cremated!
