The Pulled

Pork Burger stands as a testament to the timeless appeal of comfort food, marrying the smoky allure of slow-cooked pork with the convenience of a handheld sandwich. Its origins trace back to the heart of Southern barbecue culture, where pitmasters mastered the art of slow-cooking pork shoulder over smoldering wood for hours on end.

Rooted in tradition, the Pulled Pork Burger gained prominence in the United States during the 19th century, particularly in regions like the Carolinas and Tennessee, where barbecue is more than just a meal—it’s a way of life.
Originally, this dish was a simple affair, consisting of tender pulled pork piled high on a soft bun, often accompanied by a tangy vinegar-based sauce or a sweet and smoky barbecue glaze.

As the

culinary landscape evolved, so did the Pulled Pork Burger.
Chefs and home cooks alike began experimenting with different flavor profiles, introducing variations such as spicy chipotle mayo, crunchy coleslaw, and tangy pickles to complement the rich, savory pork.
