What is a proper Pulled Pork Sandwich?

JuniorBalloon | Jul 29, 2011 01:40 PM

I'm not sure I've ever had one. A proper one that is. I had one yesterday that was terrible. Dry pork (pretty sure it was boston butt) with no real spice or smoke flavor on a very wimpy bun. If not for the sauce it would have had no taste at all. As I was talking to a friend about it I realized I didn't really know what a proper or traditional Pulled Pork sandwhich should be. What part of the pig is used? What are the spices. How is it cooked? What kind of bun? I realize there are probably 50 ways to make one, but there must be one that is considered the Mother recipe.
