There's a neat little restaurant located in Williamsburg, VA that has been a local favorite for 40+ years. It's called Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Que. They specialize in Pulled Pork BBQ sandwiches. We would hit them up once a year during our vacation in the area. They serve a Tennessee-style Bar-B-Que made with "Doc" Pierce's Original Bar-B-Que Sauce. It's the sauce that really makes the pork shine. It's light watery sauce with a hint of cinnamon.
Once I tasted a Pierce's pulled pork sandwich I knew I couldn't wait a whole year in between fixes. Fortunately they bottle and sell the sauce, so several bottle made the trip back to Rochester that year. Now all I needed to do was to learn how to smoke pork shoulder or a Boston Butt, whatever that was.
I had a smoker but had not yet tried smoking a pork shoulder. Timing was good as the Food Network was full of shows featuring southern style food and Bobby Flay had great pulled pork recipe.
