Ok - I am going to be brutally hones - what exactly is pulled pork. I have a small picnic and small butt on (about 3# each) and was going to remove at about 170 done. Now I am curious - they have been on for two hours and are at 165 degrees (egg temp maintained at 250 with smoke). I f I leave to 200 degrees what on earth do i do with it? Is it only for sandwiches? How do I 'pull' and what do I add to it? Help please. Brian

    Brian,[p]Pulled Pork is simply shredded pork butt. The "traditional" method is to either use your hands or two forks to shred the meat. Down Southways it is usually served on some sort of bread as a sandwich, with Cole Slaw. (For the purists the slaw goes on the sandwich, for us heathens it's on the side - grin!) Take your pick on the sauce. I like a vinager based sauce or a tomato one.[p]Left over pulled pork makes great Mexican food, or as I like it, sprinkled on a salad.[p]Kelly Keefe

    Kelly Keefe,
    To be exact, down South, it is served on cheap hamburger buns. And as one who loathes cheap hamburger buns, I have to admit, barbecue should be served on cheap hamburger buns.

    The Naked Whiz,[p]Actually, there are enclaves downthataways who would have a fit if it were served on anything other then plain white bread. Other places who serve it more on what's like Texas toast. That's why I just specified bread of some sort.[p]Kelly
    (I STILL want MY slaw on the side -- grin!)

    Kelly Keefe,
    Yeah, but it's gotta be CHEAP plain white bread. Like they make cheap hamburger buns out of! :-)

  • The Naked Whiz,
    How about cheap Hot Dog buns. We ran hot of hamburger buns so we started making "Q" Dogs. Not to bad. And in the south, slaw goes on the meat,not on the side. Grin :O)
