Poll: Pulled Pork Butt - Do you toast your buns or not?

I think most places around here (southeastern Virginia) serve pulled pork on untoasted white hamburger buns. I like mine toasted, as I think the juices make the bread too soggy. How do you like your pork butt buns?

Toasted and buttered. I gag on bread that gets WET with juice.

If I have the time, I usually make homemade kaiser rolls. Untoasted.

I use a roll a that's a little more substantial than a burger bun. I don't toast it.

Bun? You're supposed to use a bun?

If I use a bun, it's usually untoasted.

I've never actually had pulled pork other than a bit off Stirling's sandwich.

Slightly buttered and grilled on the cut side. The butter heats up and softens the remainder of the bun. So, the toasted inside prevents absorption and a soggy bun. And you get a nice soft and warm outside.....

I love to toast my buns.
Nothing beats coming in after being out in the cold and standing with my backside towards the wood stove.

Uh oh. Wrong buns.

Sorry.

I can go either way and it depends on the mood I'm in. Toasted is good but so is a nice soft bread.
