I grew up near the Barbeque Capital of the country; BBQ is just a part of life there, and cooking it is one of my passions in life. In fact, one of the only things I like better than cooking BBQ is eating the stuff.

Here in Montana, we have some fantastic places if you love slow-cooked meat that's well-rested and slathered in sauce. There are several different types of meat and cuts to choose from. Ribs are always popular, as is chicken, brisket, and burnt ends, however, you can never go wrong with pulled pork.

Of course, different folks have different ideas about what makes a perfect pulled pork sandwich. For me, the pork needs to be tender and the sauce needs to have a little bit of sweetness, with some savory as well. The mixture of the two really is a delight for the tastebuds.

Then, of course, there is the coleslaw.

Personally, I make my own, but the real question comes down to what you do with it. In the south, the coleslaw goes on top in between the meat and bun.

So where can you find the best pulled pork in Montana?
