Serious Eats' Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw

For our last recipe of the week from the Serious Eats book we're sincerely hoping that you haven't retired your grill for the season. But if you did, these Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw might just be worth uncovering it and wheeling it out of the garage.

To get that great slow-cooked smokiness, the spiced and rubbed pork belly or butt is grilled over smoldering coals and wood chips until it gets all pull-apart-y. Tossed in a sauce of sweet-tangy cider vinegar, hot sauce, and chile flakes, our pulled pork is pretty darn close to the real-deal, even more so when topped with finely chopped coleslaw and served on that perfect kind of squishy white bread bun. And even though this is backyard and not professional barbecue, you're still going to get a smoke ring and some very tasty bark.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Serious Eats to give away this week.
