Recipe for Pulled Pork and Other American Favorites

Shown below is a favorite American recipe for pulled pork sandwiches.

This dish is especially popular in the state of North Carolina.

The most basic definition of pulled pork is pork cooked over a low, smoky fire to the point where it can be pulled from the bone by hand. 

Pulled pork meat is usually the meat that is left attached to the bone after all the choice cuts have been removed.

Pulled pork is every bit as tasty as the choicer cuts, but not as conveniently sliced. 

Variations on pulled pork recipes involve using different sauces, rubs, cuts, woods, toppings, and serving styles.
