Pulled pork sandwiches are best served without much adornment

Perhaps the most common barbecue offering in the South is a pulled pork sandwich.

They are popular enough that you can find them (not recommended) in the frozen section of some grocery stores.

I do not recall ever stopping at a barbecue place and not being offered a pulled pork sandwich.

If you want to try a good one, check out the Santa Cruz Grill in Ocean Springs. It sure is good!

I’m blogging about barbecue this week, but not how to make it, we are more interested in variety, sauces, sides and garnishes.

A pulled pork sandwich is almost always doctored with barbecue sauce, but what else makes for a great sandwich?

I always prefer to err on the side of simplicity, so other than adding sauce, a few thin slices of onion, and a pickle or two, that’s it in my book.

If you have a strong opinion about this subject, let’s communicate about it. I am easily found on Facebook.
