My all time favorite is a slaw, whether you do a standard cabbage and carrot or get creative. Its great with pulled pork.

I'm of the BBQ school that puts the coleslaw ON the pulled pork sandwich, so I don't consider it a side. How about some collard greens cooked with a nice big ham hock..

Also... do make aargersi's fabulous pickled onions - part of the barbacoa tacos recipe: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
I'm with HAND on the greens. Check the recent green's side dish contest. I posted an easy (and yummy IMO) collards recipe in it: http://www.food52.com/recipes...

I serve a broccoli slaw (mayo, white wine vinegar, and poppyseeds) and we always serve the sandwiches open face with slaw on top and pickles and onion on the side.

the broccoli slaw is great because you can make it a day (or even 2!) ahead and it does not "wilt" or get soggy as some finer shredded cabbage types of slaw can do...the crunch is amazing against the soft texture of the pork--we serve ours as "sliders" on the mini hawaiian bread rolls.

I really want a pulled pork sandwich right now with your broccoli slaw. Sounds amazing I must try!! The sliders on the mini hawaiian rolls sounds perfect!!

The sandwiches were Memphis style so the cole slaw side was out. I decided on greens, but I did not want to add meat because I was short on time, even though I know chorizo and hamhocks are oh so good wtih them. I ended up doing balsamic glazed collard greens with dried cranberries and beets. It was heavenly and went oh so well with the really spicy pulled pork.
