How to Make Pulled Pork

If there were ever going to be an iconic dish of the South, pulled pork would be a contender. Before the Civil War era, Southerners ate almost five times more pork than beef, which makes sense because pigs were plentiful and relatively easy to care for. In fact, some pigs would be let loose in the forest to thrive on their own, then hunted when necessary. When these pigs were caught and cooked, it became a community celebration, and friends, family, and neighbors would all share in the feast together.
