Budweiser Pulled Pork review

While the manufacturer here is Coleman Natural – Budweiser is the brand emblazoned all over this package; from the iconic logo to the fire engine red color that leaps off the shelf into your cart.

Inside the outer cardboard sleeve you will find a plastic tray, inside that the pulled pork comes as one mushy mass, vacuum packed in plastic, and ready to cook.

Cooking: Microwave or boil the inner plastic pack – and you’re good to go. This is a pretty simply heat and serve dish. I actually reserved some for use again the next day and simply microwaved the pork again.

Taste and texture: The pork is swimming in sauce; actually a better word would be drowning. While the sauce is surprisingly not as sweet as you would imagine, it is thick, gloopy and overwhelming. There’s too much thickening agent and it dominates every bite. The pork itself vanishes into the distance, there’s little smokey aroma or flavor, or sweet fatty pork flavor.

I don’t understand the Budweiser brand here, the package indicates there’s Bud in the sauce, but this seems pointless, being as it is by design a neutral and minimal flavor American lager. I say this as someone who happily drinks Budweiser, but it’s application here seems irrelevant.

Verdict: One to skip, there are much better pulled pork options on the shelf. If you can find it, a far superior option is the Niman Ranch Pulled Pork. This comes sauce-free and lets the smokey-notes of the fatty pork sing first and foremost.

Is the Budweiser Pulled Pork any good?

This is a subpar pulled pork. The pork is somewhat difficult to really judge, lost as it is, in an overwhelmingly thick and gloopy BBQ sauce.

  1. I think a better pulled pork is called CADES COVE & can be found at FOOD CITY
    in the prepared meat section. They have several varieties, my favorite is the vinegar style.
