Pulled pork is probably the purest form of barbecue. This Southern barbecue tradition originated with whole hogs cooked in pits, sometimes for days, shredded by hand and served up on plain white bread. Variations abound from here with all manner of sauces, rubs and coleslaws (typically served on top of the meat in a sandwich). Today, most pulled pork is prepared with pork shoulder roast. However you like it, these pulled pork recipes make a great meal.
