I was referring to Frank's suggestion of no bun, just the pork as being low carb.
And yes, for Andy's SO.
You know, a sandwich without the bread

Depends on the sauce. My Carolina vinegar has a tad of sugar in it. The mustard is a bit more, but not tons.

If you use the heavily sweetened ketchup sauces it is, indeed, a lot of carbs. Nothing wrong with heavily sweetened ketchup sauces, I just don't use those on my pulled pork.

Yes, eating it without the bun would take away most of the carbs. I often do a sandwich without the bread. Some people eating low carb just omit starchy carbs. Others go down to bare bones.

Ever use a lettuce leaf as a wrap?

I noticed the gas and electric was a ways away from the house, too. I was wondering if they were going to be moved closer when the house was done. At least the gas. I've never seen that before. But I've never been in NM either.

Asks the man who lives in a region of the country that puts stuffing and cranberry sauce on turkey sandwiches! I'm guessing every area of the country has its own regional sloppy sandwich. Makes life interesting!

I like making my sandwiches in a romaine lettuce leaf. I trim down the spine so it is about as thick as the rest of the leaf touching it so it's easier to roll, then lay my ingredients down like it's a flatbread. Roll and stuff into mouth, repeat. With no bread I don't feel bad about two roll-ups, expecially since they are each smaller than a standard slice of bread to begin with.

Every sub shop in my area has them from the day after Thanksgiving to right after New Years. They are delish! There is not too much bread as they tear most of it out to make a hollow for the ingredients. Some even have the gravy.
