  Barbecue Breakfast!
Pulled Pork is a form of barbecue!
"It is a method of preparation in which pork, usually shoulder cut (sometimes referred to as Boston butt) or mixed cuts, is cooked using a low-heat, long-cook method. With these extended times at low temperatures, the meat becomes tender enough that its weakened connective tissue allows the meat to be "pulled", or easily broken into individual pieces. Pulled pork is found around the world in a variety of forms." wikipedia

What is a Barbecue Breakfast? by PamSvoboda
Barbecue for Breakfast?  Absolutely! In fact it's common fair in the south, especially for a big hearty breakfast. Take a look at the photo above by cchapman /flicker.com. This is a perfect exaple of a hearty barbecue breakfast. Rich pulled pork fills the plate with sauce drizzled on top of the meat. What kind of sauce is that in the photo? It could be catchup or it could be a type of barbecue sauce. Barbecue sauce is the traditional sauce for a BBQ Breakfast. Scrambled eggs and home fries (also called cottage fries) are on the plate as well. To the right of the plate is what?! Another plate! Yep it's another plate of big fat fluffy biscuits and gravy. Can it get any better than this? I-don't-think-so!

Along with the wonderful items shown in the photo; grilled caramelized onions, cooked butteted mushrooms, grilled tomatoes (when in season), baked beans or pork-n-beans and even cheese grits are all common fair for a "Barbecue Breakfast" too.

Barbecue Breakfast; the American south's comparison to the Full English/Full Irish Breakfastwhich is also known to include beans, mushroom and tomatoes.  Cheese flavored grits go great with a barbecue breakfast along with potato cheese casserole which is also a favorite in the north. The first choice for bread is Buttermilk biscuits, where toast may be preferred in the north. If you would like to see how homemade buttermilk biscuits are made "by hand" and not with a biscuit cutter or rolling pin, then watch this vido of my Mother making biscuits. She will show you exactly how to make them!

We find that there are several favorites
when it comes to barbecue for breakfast.

Do I Sauce the Meat or Not?
That's a matter of taste and a matter of which cooking method your use to actually. Any smoked meat taste great for breakfast and is popular all over the United States but not as prevalent as it is in the south. Meat served with sauce on top or meat cooked with sauce is not as popular but tends to be a favorite in the southern United States. Many people in the U.S. loves to eat catchup with their eggs and many many people love to shake hot pepper sauce on their eggs, hash browns and home fries. It only makes sense that barbecued sauced meat be added to the list of breakfast foods.

Note: A Hearty Barbecue Breakfast is served for a supper meal as well. *It's common for people in the north to put pulled BBQ pork over rice along with eggs and toast. *Great for a Brunch too!   by PamSvoboda

Wikipedia tells us this about sauce:
"Each Southern locale has its own particular variety of barbecue, particularly concerning the sauce. North Carolina sauces vary by region; eastern North Carolina uses a vinegar-based sauce, the center of the state (around Lexington, NC) uses a combination of ketchup and vinegar as their base, and western North Carolina uses a heavier ketchup base.
The barbecue of Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee is almost always pork served with a sweet tomato-based sauce. However, several regional variations exist as well. Alabama is particularly known for its distinctive white sauce, a mayonnaise- and vinegar-based sauce, originating in northern Alabama, used predominantly on chicken and pork. A popular item in North Carolina and Memphis is the pulled pork sandwich served on a bun and often topped with cole slaw. Pulled pork is prepared by shredding the pork after it is barbecued."
(see BBQ Sauce)

Wikipedia tells us this about pork:
"Pork is eaten in various forms, including cooked (as roast pork), cured or smoked (ham, including the Italian prosciutto) or a combination of these methods (gammon, bacon or Pancetta). It is also a common ingredient of sausages. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork. Pork is a taboo food item in Islam and Judaism, and its consumption is forbidden in these two religions."
