Pigging Out on Pork

One of the great wonders of the barbecue world is smoked pork shoulder. It's a big hunk of meat cooked low and slow until succulent and tender. Roger's favorite way to devour this delicious thing of beauty is in a sandwich. In Grand Rapids, Michigan Roger visits the Pit Stop, a barbecue take-out famous for their unconventional yet scrumptious sandwich called the Green Menace Wrap. Pork chili and pulled pork, cilantro cream and barbecue sauce all get wrapped up in a flour tortilla and then cooked on a griddle until golden brown and crispy. For a classic Southern-style pork sandwich, Roger visits Top Hat Barbecue in Blount Springs, Alabama. This barbecue institution has been serving their best-selling BBQ Pork Sandwich the same exact way for almost 50 years. The smoked pork is chopped, dressed with a little barbecue sauce and then piled in a bun. Top Hat Barbecue likes to keep things simple and simple can be deeply satisfying.
