In North Carolina they top their BBQ pork sandwiches with cole slaw. I am a cole slaw snob. I hate most cole slaw, it’s either too runny or too sweet or too fine or just outright bland in most stores and restaurants. But once I had the best ever cole slaw on one of these sandwiches I was IN LOVE. This is the proper way to eat a BBQ pork sandwich, folks. So for the adventurous among you, I give you the best ever cole slaw:

Your attitude towards slaw mirrors mine! Our recipes are very similar… I haven’t tried sour cream as a component as I don’t usually keep it on hand. I’ll look to try it, however. I use kosher salt instead of celery salt and then add celery seed. I also use apple cider vinegar instead of white. Lastly, I spend the few extra moments to make homemade mayo, a great, super-simple recipe I’m preparing to post.
