Tell me about pulled pork

Nyleve | Aug 1, 2007 02:18 PM

Seriously. I was raised in NY and live in Canada. Pulled pork - or any sort of BBQ, for that matter - is a deep dark mystery to me. I need a basic primer on the subject.

I understand how you slow cook the pork and pull it into shreds. Then what? Do you mix sauce into the shreds or do you just serve the pork on a bun and add the sauce yourself? What kind of sauce? And does anything else go on the sandwich? Finally, I gather cole slaw is the classic accompaniment - what kind? Creamy or not?

It's crazy! I feel more at home discussing the fine points of a tagine or pad thai than southern barbecue. I must be missing something really important. Are there no other pulled pork neophytes out there?
