Get the fam­ily to­gether for a meaty and juicy street-food clas­sic

This Amer­i­can clas­sic, orig­i­nally from South Carolina, is all the rage for a good rea­son – it’s in­sanely de­li­cious. The meat is slow-cooked over a char­coal pit un­til it falls apart, then shred­ded and piled onto a soft brioche bun with BBQ sauce, pick­les and slaw. Few of us have a bar­be­cue large enough to slow-cook or smoke the meat, how­ever it’s eas­ily done in an oven at a very low tem­per­a­ture
