Pulled pork is one of the best comfort foods around. It's messy, it's delicious, and it's guaranteed to make you fall into the happiest food coma of your life. The pork is cooked slowly at a low temperature so that the meat becomes super tender and can be pulled off into smaller pieces. It's then mixed with a delicious sauce and served to you on a bun, and, really, what could be better than that?
