BBQ TIME...Slaw Style

Tomorrow is the first of July, which only means 3 things: Heat, sun and barbeque! With fourth of July being only 4 days away, what better way to start the party than with some BBQ recipes! Since I work at the best bbq restaurant in the Happiest Place On Earth, I often get asked for some tips and recipes from the Ranch, however, I would be reeeeeeally unprofessional and not very cast-memberly like if I gave those out, so I can't...however, I can give out what was already given out :D I had googled a picture of Big Thunder Ranch BBQ slaw to show Flo a picture of a slaw that wasn't mayonnaise-based, but rather vinegar based, and while I did find pictures (below) I also found the recipe (and yes, it is correct). The original post is from the Disney parks blog to which the Chef of our restaurant willingly gave out to desperate Guests. Crank up that smoker, get the ice chests ready, and break out the fireworks while you enjoy the wildest slaw in the wilderness! *Cue Big Thunder Mountain ride...no? Okay, enjoy!

Big Thunder Ranch BBQ Slaw
Serves 6 to 8
  • 1/2 cup white-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound shredded green cabbage (about 1/2 large cabbage)
  • 1 pound shredded purple cabbage (about 1/2 large cabbage)
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  1. Combine vinegar, oil, sugar, salt, celery seed, paprika, black pepper, and cayenne in a large bowl, and using an immersion blender, blend together until emulsified. *Alternatively, combine in a blender, and slowly add oil while blending.
  2. Combine shredded cabbage and shredded carrots in a separate large bowl. Add dressing, tossing to combine.
  3. Refrigerate for a minimum of an hour in order for slaw to get "soggy" and absorb the dressing.
**Beware, very tangy!
