      I like Gabriel's Fire. I prefer to eat the smoked pork shoulder in chunks. But they also serve it pulled on a bun. He makes several different sauces

        I like Pecos Pit best. Second place goes to Pig Iron.

          I like Pecos, but if some one went there for Pulled Pork, they'd probably be disappointed.
          Their sandwich is more a BBQ Pork mix (doused with BBQ sauce) than what most people think of as a pulled pork sandwich.

            GY, I always picture the "lunch room lady" with yellow rubber gloves serving Sloppy Joe's when I think if Pecos. A Sloppy Joe is a Sloppy Joe, not a pulled pork sandwich. (And they don't serve BBQ.)

              Uh, they do. Just don't order the chopped pork or beef sandwich.
              Get the sliced beef brisket. (sauce on the side if you wanna be big deal BBQ snob about it)
              On a good day, it's as good as some of the middle of the road stuff from Texas, which is pretty impressive for Seattle.

          The Aloha sliders from Marination Mobile are excellent. The pork is tender and smoky, slightly spicy, the buns are lightly griddled on the inside and they are topped with a light finely grated slaw of cabbage, carrots and a hint of cilantro. http://marinationmobile.com/ $2 apiece.
          I find them in West Seattle on Saturdays, but they move around. Worth a try. Note that these are not tomatoey-sweet BBQ sauce pork sammies...as a result, the smoked pork flavor really comes through.

            Not a sammy, but Flying Squirrel Pizza has a delicious pulled-pork pizza.

              You are so right! I love that pizza. Take friends, because it only comes in a whole, not half, pizza... and you may want to try one of their other wonderful pizzas. Everyone I've taken to Flying Squirrel loves that pulled pork pizza. Thanks for reminding me that it's been too long since we've been there for dinner.
