Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwiches


Barbecue is a symbol of American ingenuity. It transforms cheap, tough cuts of meat into tender bites of heaven with nothing but time, smoke, heat, and a few spices. Serve this smoky pulled pork like they do in North Carolina--with some slaw on top of the sandwich.
