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.

Toasted Kaiser Rolls or Poor Boy Rolls.

Does Pulled Pork go with Asian green Beans?

Steamed, like a hot dog bun.
I don't like a plain, room-temp one and I don't like it toasted either for that particular sandwich.

I like them slightly warmed, not steamed or toasted; just put in foil in the oven.

Toasted, always. I use French rolls more often than burger buns though, so maybe I should have voted 'other'.

I like how the bread holds up a little better when it's toasted.

I serve my pulled pork the proper way... on a plate. I prefer to have okra and rice with liver hash with it.

I use both vinegar (eastern) and Carolina mustard sauces.

Butcher paper with, as we say in the south, Floppy White Bread.

White or potato sandwich bread, toasted or untoasted, either way. Do you coleslaw on the sandwich or not?

For the classic vinegar based NC BBQ I make, has to be
a cheap white hamburger bun, untoasted. With cole slaw
to balance the bite of the vinegar. I'm drooling just thinking
about it!
