    I actually hated Cole Slaw at one time. My mom made that real runny, milkey kind that got into your sandwich and bake beans and all over the corn on the cob [​IMG]

     Finally I got a neighbor here were I live now that makes a great slaw, that doesn't run all over the plate. I can eat it any time.........but putting it on my Pork Sandwich??? [​IMG]    Ain't gonna happen.

    So, what say you?? Maybe you guys can change my mind.

    Slaw adds a whole new dimension to a PP sammie. It is like the lettuce on a BLT. Adds a crispness and an acidity that compliments the mouth watering goodness of the pork.

     We slice the cabbage "really thin". A mandolin helps here. Then the cabbage is salted and let drain to remove the moisture. This helps in keeping the slaw from running all over the plate. On occasion the bride adds ground chipotle to the slaw dressing for another flavor "twang".

    I'm gettin' hungry again.

    On the side, I dont like to mask the taste of the meat.

    Do I assume no BBQ sauce either?

    A PP sammie just ain't right without slaw and a dash of hot sauce.

    Well...for me anyways!!!

      Have a great day!!

  10. Not answering for Meateater but for me, the only sauce I will use on pulled pork is a thin vinegar based sauce. IMHO, putting a thick sweet sauce nullifys all of those flavors from the rub and the smoke. Could be I'm biased though since I'm from the Piedmont region of NC. [​IMG]

    Very rarely do I use BBQ sauce, I do love hot sauce by the buckets, hotter the better.

    I worked in a BBQ joint as a teen and everything was slathered with sauce. Don't get me wrong I loved it back then, all the meats were high quality and the sauce was awesome. I guess my older age I want to enjoy the taste of the meat without covering it up..........except for hot sauce, that's my crutch. It's all good no matter how you like it . [​IMG]

    It's a personal preference thing Flash. I would urge you to try slaw on your PP & especially on brisket & judge for yourself.

    It just depends on what kind of mood I am in. I sometimes will slop a scoop or two of baked beans on top of the slaw which is on top of the pulled pork. It makes for a messy sandwich but surprisingly good.

    Slaw makes a PP sammy off the chart good!

     No to Cole slaw!

     That said  where I live good slaw is hard to come by so the issue might be lack of decent slaw! 

    I’m going to make one of the slaw recipes on here next time I do pulled pork and give it a shot!

     Thus the reason for the Poll Al, if it comes out in favor, I will try it next time I do pulled pork and Doc comes over with the slaw.

    If it's naked briskit or pulled pork w/ finishing sauce then yes i add slaw.

    We like both beef and pig chopped w/ some bbq sauce on buns, If it's sauced,nothing but a couple of dill slices and some cheese
