Default almost mushy pulled pork

whenever I goto the dixie pig I get this pulled pork sandwhich that is mushy like tuna fish.
I never get it this soft or finely shredded when I make it, what are they doing differently?

Like really fine chopped mushy or the meat itself is mushy? Could be they cook the chit out of it or maybe it was frozen previously.

The pork at the Dixie Pig is probably very overcooked.

It sounds like it is something that you want to achieve, so I am assuming that you liked it.

Overcooked or not, how was it?

as allready said, either overcooked or previously frozen, but also, they could be playing with it to much when saucing and seasoning. I know if i keep flipping and turning while saucing it starts to get mushy.

When I defrost frozen shredded pork pork it doesn't go mushy.

Is that because I vacuum pack it before freezing, and when it comes to using it I defrost it and warm it through gently in a pan of hot water before cutting the bag open and serving?

If it's mechanically shredded then you can have this happen.

When the meat has been frozen prior to smoking it I find that it is mushier in texture than fresh.

Never had a problem with frozen Butts.
Maybe we have been lucky.

Normally, the mushy (like mashed potatoes) pork is overcooked.

JMHO
