With summer (hopefully?) right around the corner, backyards across the nation and the world are poised to get lost in a haze of blue smoke. Pulled pork can be a daunting task for a newcomer to the world of slow-and-low barbecue, but with some help from The National Pork Board, we'll make a pitmaster of you yet.

    We definitely don't call that pulled pork. We call it bar-b-q. Trust me, I'm an eastern north carolinian.

    South Carolina mustard based bbq sauce is so good you will never want anything else on a pulled pork sandwich. Try it!

    You know, I just made some pulled pork sandwiches the other day, but I cooked mine in a pressure cooker. Turned out pretty good.

    All you need is pork, a little salt and pepper, charcoal and time.

  • tinadotexe

    i respect the tomato based bbq sauce, but if you're going for traditional pulled pork the vinegar is the way to go EDIT: also, make it a pig pickin. Smoke the whole pig and share with the neighborhood. That's true southern


    Im confused, i only have caucasian and slightly darker salt??

    My momma could teach you a lesson or two about slaw, plus not to throw shade at North Carolina But Mississippi pulled pork is the king

  • SkywalkerAni

    I admit, I'm personally more a fan of the eastern NC vinegar style. I personally think it goes better with pulled pork.

    Hey y'all. So I live in Eastern North Carolina, the bbq capital of the world. He's right about that one. Vinegar bbq is real bbq and there's nothing like it. Top it with some good slaw and I personally like mayo on my bun but that's just me. With a big glass of super sweet tea and there is n o t h i n g like it. Love watching you Rea! Keep it up! 💜 Much love from New Bern, NC. 🤙🏼🍽️🐖

    When I think pulled pork, one of the things that springs to mind is a slow cooker version. Kinda curious to see it on this channel. Tried a couple recipies from the show before, and they pretty much always turn out to be the best version of the dish at hand that I've had. Plus I have no access to sousvide or a smoker, but I do have a slow cooker. XD

    I decided to make pulled pork using Babish's spice rub and Chef John's oven cooked pulled pork method and it turned out fantastic! Since I dont have a sous vide (which I eventually plan to get) this is the home method I'd recommend. The only downside is you cant get that beautifully crisp crust on the outside but by all means in creates a deliciously tender pulled pork!

    North Carolina has nothing to with mustard in the dry stuff. Also you rarely find anything other than the vinegar in NC. That ketchup is more of midwest type stuff.

    how many vids do I have to watch and how much cooking do I have to do before I am allowed to get a tiny whisk tattoo?

  • tazmon122

    1yr later, and i just noticed Babish says "favorite hot sauce" while handling a bottle of Tapatio. i might be a little biased (what with the Cholula tattoo on my leg and all), but that's just wrong. i'll forgive under only if there is an agreed understanding that at the time of filming, all the Cholula in Binging With Babish studios was used up and gone.

    If you’re gonna make Carolinian Pulled Pork, you need to also make a mustard-based BBQ sauce. Pretty common in South Carolina.


    When I heard you say you were going to sous-vied your butt I wanted to cry a little bit. I mean they make smokers the size of a toaster oven. You just wanted to make every southerner cry 😂

    As a North Carolinian, the second sauce shouldn't be tomato based, it's mustard based

  • ProfessorMonocle

    Alternate but still from North Carolina (OBX) sauce: Take a gallon jug of white vinegar and add black peppercorns, crushed red pepper flakes, minced garlic, and a whole bottle of texas pete's. shake generously and let sit overnight while the pork shoulders in the oven at its lowest temp. Comes out killer every time

    I just wonder if babish cooks for his neighbors once in a while. And where he lives. And what he's doing right now. And just you know what he's up to.

    I used to live in East NC and the first method killed my soul. But I was revived by the second method and addition of coleslaw. All it needs is a side of hush puppies and some collard greens.
