We were at a cookout a couple of weeks ago where someone brought pulled pork made in a crock pot. It was pot of meat mush. I guess it was overcooked because there wasn't a recognizable piece of pork in the whole pot.

That would not be pulled pork in my book. After it's cooked, you take it (a) off the cooker, (b) out of the oven, (c) out of the crockpot, and THEN pull it and let people build their sandwiches, add sauce, etc. Same with chopped.

But that's just my vile, elitist take on it.

as for my vile, wretched and elitest take on putting pork thru
a meat-grinder, all I can say is that many of the guests must
have forgotten their teeth that day and preferred bbq pork Gerber-Style.

definitely a sin. remove your meat, pull it apart, let the eaters decide
from there how they want to eat it.

Exactly my opinion! Same goes for feeding a crowd burgers. Cook BURGERS and let the people build their own sandwiches. Don't fill the ground meat with everything in you kitchen to try to make them "special".

Excuse me...but why is everyone being so mean to MJK? Personally, I don't like my smoked pork ground up but that is no reason to make fun of him.

Mama, I think MJK was being a bit facetious and Mudbug and Andy have known him a long time and are goofing with him a bit. (Just guessing. I know they've all been around an awfully long time.) I'm not getting that they are making fun of him...more some of the stuff thats been said about DC lately I think.

Am I right guys? Post back so Mama doesn't think you all are being meanies.

Living in Central America, I've discovered that leftover pulled pork works very well in many Spanish and Latin American dishes, such as tortas (omelets), burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas, and even paella.
