Pulled pork is a form of barbecue. It is a method of preparation in which pork is cooked using a low-heat, long-cook method. The meat becomes tender enough that its weakened connective tissue allows the meat to be “pulled”, or easily broken into individual pieces. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Southern pulled-pork barbecue.  As simple as that!  When the heat goes up here in metro Boston, I begin to crave two things – iced tea (which I make at home using a special recipe) and a pulled-pork sandwich.  The sandwich necessitates a road trip to Blue Ribbon Barbecue in Arlington, MA.  When I moved to New England from North Carolina in 1985 I despaired of leaving bluegrass music, grits and biscuits, and barbecue.  I was beyond ecstatic to discover that these delicacies could be found in the Northeast, and I could not remain here without them.  As for that iced tea?  Maybe I’ll share my recipe one day…
