Memorial Day makes me picture the rows of white crosses at the American Cemetery in Normandy, France closely followed by the eerily silent D-Day beaches. Those images make me profoundly grateful for those who have the courage to stand up for American Freedom today, during the American Revolution and every day in between.
Memorial Day also conjures up images of backyard cookouts, barbeque, laughter, and American lager. Not that I need an excuse to eat barbeque! This week I tried a new barbecue recipe from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook 1955 edition, “Bert’s Superb Barbeque Sauce”. I have no idea who Bert is, but his barbeque sauce is superb!
I decided to use the sauce to make my Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Chicken. I’ve made pulled chicken in the slow cooker several times and it doesn’t get much easier than this. “Bert’s” barbecue sauce recipe is perfect for this dish because it is liquid enough to stand up to the long cook time. Barbecue Pulled Chicken would be the perfect Memorial Day main dish: easy, delicious, and stress-free. Serve on a bun with the Sweet Coleslaw below for the perfect meal!
