bbq sandwich

Stopped at a little shack outside of Little Rock and decided to get a sandwich. Mistake. Dry, dry, dry.. so dry they drowned it in sauce and slaw. Not a bad smoke flavor and chopped instead of pulled but freaking dry. It reminded me if the time I took pp to my daughter's tailgate party. My pork was beside a restaurant brand. One of the players took some of the store bought but I asked him to try a bite of mine just to see what he thought. After finishing he screamed out "that **** is juicy as hell". My favorite compliment to date. Do any of you chop your pulled pork?

    No chopping here. Never saw the point. I like mine pulled and the ideal way for me is to have big, chunky pieces. Don't like it pulled into shreds either. Picky? Yes I am. Just ask SHMBO.

    theres a place near me that thin slices and then roughly chops, i like it from time to time when im on the road that way. i dont ever remember getting it as a sandwich though, its usually piled in a plate and i pour beans over it

    Sometimes I chop mine.  That way you get a bite of bark every time.

    I chop when I make Carolina style BBQ. Real Carolina style, not that weird Lexington stuff ;)

    It's typically for "whole hog" BBQ so you get bits of skin in each bite. When I do it, I use a picnic shoulder so I have the skin.

    I have always pulled when I make butts or picnics.  I guess I thought chopped was for when people didn't cook it long enough to pull.  I have had chopped from a whole hog cook and it definitely seemed like it was still a little too firm to pull...if I had to guess around 180 degrees.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I like to pull it into pieces about as thick as my thumb, so the bites are a bit chunky.

    The very first real BBQ that I ever had was Carolina style and chopped so I like to do mine that way every now and then.  But 9 out of 10 times, we just pull it and give a coarse chop (3 to 4 times each way).

    You think that little shack's sandwich was bad?  We went to Six Flags Over Georgia this weekend and we paid $14.99 each for a crock pot style pulled pork sandwich drowning in sauce, fries and a coke.  It was the worst AND most expensive pulled pork sandwich I've had.  That said, it looks like it beat the chicken strips my son got.
