'Tis the season for barbecue, and boy, are we in full-throated celebration here. “Full-throated” in that your throat, mouth, and belly will be full of the most sublime flavors south of the Mason-Dixon. Honey mustard, vinegar, hot sauce, and brown sugar meld to form a glaze that compliments the pork completely and perfectly. An apple-and-vinegar slaw adds the crunch and a sweet-spicy balance. Fire up the grill, and go the whole hog.
