SA Living Pulled pork

Wafting through the News 4 studios was the aroma of delicious barbecue. Kathy Pullin of Pullin Premium BBQ pulled out all the stops when she smoked a pork shoulder. Accompanying the pork shoulder was a delicious spicy mango salsa, a creamy slaw and, of course, all of it topped off with a drizzle of barbecue sauce.
