Mello - When I went to Daytona Pig Stand on the second of my 5 trips, I had their brisket. At that time, it was sliced and it was ok...Not great. However, the last few times, the menu specifically said they had pulled brisket. I, like you, never heard of pulled brisket.
This time, with John, we both asked the girl at the counter about that. She said their's is pulled. I am just guessing, but perhaps they do not do enough volume to cook off one of those nice big briskets? Perhaps, you don't rewarm it as a whole? Maybe it takes too long? Maybe doing so would dry it out? So, they just chop it up? This way, they can have it for a longer period of time and heat it quickly? I just don't know.
Yes, I was talking about Sonny's, which is a small (?) chain that stretches up to at least Charlotte..Been to that one several times right off I-77. We just had three Sonny's close in this part of Volusia County. I'd been to all three of those locations many times. Except for the first couple of times when the Pig Stand was good, Sonny's ribs were better..I like Sonny's consistancy. Never had anything bad at a Sonny's...Never.
I hope to have the pictures of the Pig Stand up this morning... It is a good looking place..That I'll give them.
