Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I had not heard of pulled pork until earlier this year. Typically, once you are acquainted with something, you see & hear of it all the time. So, I decided to look into this as it appears to be so popular. I read lots of recipes on the net and there are so many variations and stories about where and how it originated, I got completely confused at first and put it to the bottom of the list of dishes to try. It kept playing on my mind though and I finally decided to give it a go.....   ...more

And yes, it used to be easier before the war on liquids and the madness of charging for checked luggage. Once, before air travel was the horror it is today (and yes, I know, it's a miracle of engineering, blah blah blah) my pal C took me to the airport and handed me a beautifully packed box lunch full of Stuff You Want to Eat. It was awesome. ...more
