    After a few tries, I finally got a great bit of pulled pork to come out for Super Bowl Sunday.. Take a look :grilling_smilie:.

    As for method:

    - Applied dry rub over a mustard slather for about three days.

    - Smoked with apple and cherry wood at 220 for about 12 hours

    - Developed two different vinegar based sauces for pulled pork sammich's, as a side. No sauce was mixed in the pork, obviously...

    Let's just say, it came out delicious :yahoo:

    I ended up making three sauces to put on sammichs at the request of the diner. One was a West Carolina vinegar sauce (cider vinegar, ketchup, red pepper flake, brown sugar), one was an East Carolina vinegar sauce (cider vinegar, white vinegar, cayenne, tabasco, brown sugar) and the last one was an Alabama White Sauce (mayo, white vinegar, horseradish, black pepper).

    By far the West Carolina was the most popular and my favorite.
