  1. 1 of 6 Heat oven to 325 degrees . Pour 1 cup of the beer in bottom of a baking pan. Put a rack on top (high enough to keep pork off of beer). Mix garlic powder, cayenne, paprika, pepper blend, chili powder, salt and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar and rub onto pork. Bake at 325 degrees , covered, for 2-1/2 hours or until very tender. Once cooked, shred pork, discarding fat.
  2. 2 of 6 Meanwhile, roast banana peppers on the grill, then remove skin and seeds. Finely chop and mix with pork.
  3. 3 of 6 Pour another 1 cup beer in a saucepan. Add 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and the red pepper flakes. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture reduces to 1/2 cup, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Once reduced, add cider vinegar, hot sauce, Worcestershire, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, the tomato paste, chipotle hot sauce and mustard. Stir until combined. Stir in broth. Simmer 20 minutes. Stir into pork.
  4. 4 of 6 Blend cinnamon and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Rub onto pineapple slices. Grill slices over medium heat for about 2 to 4 minutes on each side. Finely chop; set aside.
  5. 5 of 6 In a large bowl, combine cabbage, scallion, onion and peppers. In separate bowl, whisk together remaining 1/3 cup beer, remaining 1 tablespoon each brown sugar and white vinegar. Pour mixture over cabbage and peppers; toss to combine. Let stand 30 minutes.
  6. 6 of 6 Cook bacon in oven or panini press until crisp, about 10 minutes. Flip halfway through; drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
