    CherCher's Note:

    This is by far the best pulled pork sandwich I have made by far. Even though it takes such a long time to roast, and the basting process, it's well worth it!! This is an Emeril Lagasse recipe. This takes about 20 minutes active prep time, 4 hours and 30 minutes inactive prep time. and 7 Hours of cooking.

    1. 1
      Place the pork in a baking dish. In a bowl, combine the sugar, Essence, salt, cumin, paprika, pepper, and cayenne. Rub the seasoning evenly over the pork to coat. Cover with plastic and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      Preheat an oven or smoker to 225 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Bring the pork to room temperature and place in a roasting pan, fat side up. Slow cook in the oven, basting with the Wet Mop Basting Sauce every 45 minutes, until tender and the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. (The cooking should take about 6 to 7 hours.) Remove from the oven and let rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      With a knife and fork or two forks, pull the meat apart into small slices or chunks. Toss with the Barbecue Sauce, to taste, and divide among the hamburger buns. Top with the coleslaw. Serve with the pickles and additional Barbecue Sauce on the side.

      Spot on! Dry rub, slow cooked and mopped with a vinegar BBQ sauce.... that's the way I remember it. The only thing I do differntly is top the sandwich with more vinegar BBQ sauce (if needed) and coleslaw. No thick BBQ sauce. With a side of fried okra and hush puppies, preceeded with a bowl of Brunswick Stew you have a traditional NC luchtime tradition. Kudos to you... great stuff!

      This is so good! I found it took longer to cook than the recipe said, though. We have a smoker/grill that I kept at about 225 degrees, and it took about 11 hours to cook the pork to 160 degrees.
