Almost North Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ, Joan Osborne, Boomer, NC
My family often requests this recipe. We serve ours on buns southern-style, topped with coleslaw and extra hot sauce. Some of us like to also add sliced sweet onion and tomato, mustard, pickled jalapeños and dill pickle chips. Occasionally we have a guest who also likes mayonnaise on theirs. However you enjoy it, it’s delicious!
