BBQ Pulled Pork Sammie


Going to school in Durham, North Carolina, I quickly became aware that almost everyone who lives in Durham has the same favorite restaurant — Bullock’s BBQ. 

It’s truly an institution not only because the food is just so darn tasty, but also because it’s Durham’s longest continuous running restaurant, having opened its doors in 1952. 


  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (i.e. Tabasco)

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or more to taste)


  • Pulled pork or chicken*

  • Bun

  • Cole slaw


  1. Combine all ingredients in a pot and simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.

  2. Drench the pulled pork or chicken in the sauce.

  3. Serve atop a bun, topped with cole slaw. You can always drizzle a little extra BBQ sauce on the bun as well.
