Pulled pork

Today I made my own pulled pork.
First time in Finland, it worked pretty well.

1.5kg piece of Butt found at Prisma. about 10 euros.
Some pork rub I brought back from Texas, but you ncan do your own with some local products and some spices.
I rubbed the pork with the pork rub. Put it in a plate, a bit of bbq sauce on and around.
6 hours in the oven at 120C.
Then I left it for about an hour cooling down.
Took it out, used to forks and pulled the pork!
Once this is done, I put some bbq sauce on it and mixed the whole stuff.

Here is anyhow how to reset the theme using SQL:

Simply execute the three following commands:

UPDATE system SET status=1 WHERE name = 'garland';

My MYERS-BRIGGS Personality type

Last week we had the trainer assessor workshop and one of our trainer gave a 30 minutes training about the Myers-Briggs personality test. This test is measuring preferences and helps to find out a little bit more about oneself. Some of the sentences in the result sound a bit like astrology so I am very cautious with this and of course I only take the best…
