Chopped Pork

After pork shoulder has been barbecued, it can be either pulled or chopped. Pulled is a laborious process because it involves hand-separating meat from fat. When chopping, it also is necessary to separate out excess fat, but once that is done, it’s simply a matter of hacking the meat to smithereens. Throughout the Mid-South, chopped pork is favored for sandwiches, as well as some platters. It tends to be the more prominent method in areas where sauce is important.
