apple with everything: beautiful skin, sweet flavor and a bright,
tender flesh that remains white even after being cut. It’s a pure
and pristine apple that’s a genuine work of orchard-growing
genius. Envy™ was born in New Zealand using natural
plant-breeding methods, crossing a Braeburn with a Royal Gala
apple. From there, a handpicked team of talented growers,
planted trees in regions perfect for growing Envy, such as New
Zealand, Washington state and Chile where they benefit from
long, sundrenched days and crisp, cool evenings.

Southern Pork and Slaw Dog / #CookoutWeek

We are celebrating #CookoutWeek again today with this Southern Pork and Slaw Dog! This tasty hot dog was my husbands invention. We love to go to a local BBQ restaurant near our house, and it has become a favorite. My husband has taken to buying a hot dog when we go to the restaurant, and doctoring it up with the BBQ meal that I usually order.  It is awesome! This recipe is a take off on our favorite hot dog! 
I usually have this BBQ and Slaw in my fridge, and that is what I used for the pork and slaw portion of the recipe. I also have an Oven Baked BBQ w/ Vinegar BBQ Sauce recipe, that would be perfect for these Pork and Slaw Dogs also!
