Porter Brined Smoked Pork Shoulder with Cole Slaw and Texas Toast

I had been eyeing this recipe for a while and since I got a kettle smoker for Christmas – I decided to give it a shot. I used the Transporter from the Old Ivy Brewery for the brine. To go with the pork, I made the Not Your Mama’s Coleslaw with St. Agur bleu cheese and some Texas Toast with the beer bread that my wife had baked the night before using Orval.

After much consternation, I decided to make it a night with Claim 52 Brewing – with bottles of Voyager, Olivia 9 and Glasgow Kiss.
