Pulled pork is a form of barbecue in which pork, usually shoulder cut (sometimes referred to as Boston butt) or mixed cuts, is cooked using a slow cook method. With these extended times at low temperatures, the meat becomes tender enough that it can be "pulled", or easily broken into individual pieces.
Pulled pork is found around the world in a variety of forms.
